Aaron Rodgers arrives in Green Bay for day one of training camp

The Packers future Hall-of-Fame QB looks poised to return to Green Bay for the 2021 season.

Will Aaron Rodgers play for the Green Bay Packers in 2021?


UPDATE: Rodgers’ plan landed late Monday night in Green Bay while team President Mark Murphy told a fan this morning that the quarterback was already at the facility. It appears the drama is over, for now.

UPDATE: It appears that Rodgers will return, but only with the ability to get out of Green Bay after this season. It will be interesting to see how playing the season with one foot out the door will go over in Green Bay. Of course, the Packers are likely hoping that they can truly bring Rodgers back into the fold this season, but it sure doesn’t look like Rodgers expects that to happen.

UPDATE: Rodgers is now close to terms that would bring Rogers back for another season. He is under contract, but appeared more than willing to try to force a trade. The new contract would likely give Rodgers more control of his future.

Finally some good news for Packers fans, as it appears their MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers is going to play for Green Bay this season, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. This is the first sign of the ice between Rodgers and the higher ups thawing.

This news has already pushed sportsbooks to take down their NFC North and Packers related odds. Nothing is set in stone yet, but the Packers seem to have gotten the message and have been trying their best to get Rodgers back in the fold. They reportedly offered Rodgers a huge contract to smooth things over.

If Rodgers truly is back, the boost to the offense is immeasurable. Davante Adams becomes the No. 1 fantasy receiver again, while Robert Tonyan and Aaron Jones get a big boost as scoring opportunities will increase tremendously compared to Blake Bortles or Jordan Love behind center. Oh, and they will once again have a real shot at winning a Super Bowl.
