According to a recent story, a member of the Green Bay Packers’ front staff appears to be ready to end the Aaron Rodgers era in Green Bay.
With Rodgers‘ football future still in doubt, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel recently reported that “late last year, Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst told an NFL colleague he was convinced it was time the organization moved on from” the 39-year-old quarterback and “see what [third-year quarterback] Jordan Love had in him.”
According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, this reality has hit the “Cheeseheads” organization hard, as General Manager Brian Gutekunst has already set his sights on the future, which does not include Rodgers.
Former NFL beat writer says the Packers are ‘disgusted’ with Aaron Rodgers
Former Green Bay Packers journalist Bob McGinn claims to have noticed warning indications of a rift between the team and Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers began his four-day “darkness retreat” last week to determine if he will play again in 2023, but McGinn told GoLongTD.com on Friday that he is “absolutely confident” the four-time MVP will not be returning as the team’s starting quarterback the following season.
“They are done with Rodgers,” McGinn said on a podcast with GoLong’s Tyler Dunne. “He’s not coming back. I mean, they’re disgusted with him, and they’re done with him. And they’re moving on.”
Meanwhile, the Packers are extremely high on Jordan Love. “They think he’s the second coming now,” McGinn said
“Public niceties aside, my hunch is [Packers coach Matt] LaFleur had had enough of Rodgers’ act and wanted to shift the narrative,”. The Packers would gain leverage with their imperial quarterback and his passive-aggressive manner if they had a first-round player on the squad.” McGinn wrote at The Athletic.
According Wikipedia, Aaron Charles Rodgers (born December 2, 1983) is an American football quarterback for the National Football League’s Green Bay Packers (NFL). Rodgers began his collegiate football career in 2002 at Butte College before moving to the University of California, Berkeley, where he established multiple career throwing records, including the lowest single-season and career interception rates. The Packers picked him in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft.
