The Aaron Rodgers sweepstakes has been wide open this offseason, with a number of teams vying to land the reigning NFL MVP.
Adding Rodgers makes any team an immediate Super Bowl contender and it seemed that his decision was set to come down to four teams. Those organizations were the Packers, Steelers, Broncos, and Titans.
On Tuesday, the All-Pro signal caller made up his mind. He opted to return to Green Bay, spurning the advances of Pittsburgh, Denver, and Tennessee.
Rodgers signed a massive four-year, $200 million deal with $150 million being guaranteed money. The contract easily makes him the highest paid passer in the league while also solidifying his status in Green Bay for the immediate future.
At 38 years old, this could be the deal that keeps Rodgers with the Packers for the remainder of his career.
While Green Bay is ecstatic to bring the talented passer back, others are left wondering where to go from here.
Social Media Reacts To Denver Broncos Missing On Aaron Rodgers
The Broncos appeared to be the favorite to land Rodgers had he opted not to stay in Green Bay. Unfortunately, they came up just short of signing the MVP signal caller.
Now, they’re stuck wondering what’s next.
Is Drew Lock the answer or do they go after another passer in free agency? Is there a possibility of taking someone in the upcoming NFL Draft?
Social media was quick to react to the news, and it’s giving Broncos fans a hard time for the false hope had before Rodgers inked his deal with the Packers.
