Former Packers VP makes huge prediction for Aaron Rodgers’ future

Right before the NFL Draft, news leaked that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was fed up with the organization and no longer wanted to be a part of the franchise. The relationship between the Packers and Rodgers has been examined from virtually every angle this offseason, but we have yet to see any movement on the front.

Right now, Rodgers is still away from the team, as we most recently saw him playing golf with Bryson DeChambeau against Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson. Unlike in the NFC Championship Game, which Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won en route to their Super Bowl win, Rodgers came away victorious here.

But, with the season quickly approaching, there will have to be some resolution between Rodgers and the team. Everyone has given their prediction on the matter, and now a former Packers’ vice president Andrew Brandt has provided his prediction on what will happen.

“My Aaron Rodgers opinion update is the same as it’s been all year: The Packers won’t trade him in 2021,” he tweeted. “Aaron can’t trade himself. Aaron won’t retire. Some contract accommodation- financial, length or both- will be made. The Packers will trade him in 2022.”

That seems to be the consensus belief when it comes to the Rodgers situation. No one believes he will miss the 2021 season, but it will not be until 2022 when he gets his wish and is playing for another organization.

Parting ways in 2022 always seemed to be the plan, as the Packers selected quarterback Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, something that miffed Rodgers and signaled the beginning of the end of an era.

Aaron Rodgers won the MVP award in 2020, showing that he has plenty left in the tank. A contract amendment for the 2021 season seems to be the likeliest outcome before trade talks pick up following the conclusion of the season.
