It’s notable that Eisen claims he heard this rumor “over and over again” at the combine. Additionally, he makes it very clear that this is strictly a rumor, as Rodgers has claimed that no reporter knows what’s going on when it comes to him.
So, take this rumor as you see fit. The Packers could genuinely be hoping for Aaron Rodgers to either retire or ask for a trade. It would make sense considering Green Bay would finally be able to move on and build a roster around Jordan Love.
On the other hand, nothing is set in stone until Rodgers says so. For that reason, the Packers are basically stuck in limbo until he makes a final decision.
This is an incredibly interesting situation as these rumors kind of make Green Bay look a bit odd. It’s almost like they don’t have the galls to make a decision on the roster.
Hopefully, we get some answers soon, as the superstar quarterback has claimed numerous times he doesn’t want to elongate his decision this offseason. Also, it sounds like the Packers would appreciate an answer too.
