Because the saying goes, it takes one to know one.
Aaron Rodgers startled many together with his clear postgame feedback Sunday after the 31-26 NFC championship recreation loss to the Buccaneers, saying that his future in a Green Bay uniform is “uncertain.”
Effectively, who higher to research these feedback than former Packer QB — and multiple-time retiree — Brett Favre? Talking on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Favre provided a little bit of perception into what Rodgers could be pondering, and what the Packers ought to do (via ProFootballTalk):
I wouldn’t pay a lot consideration to it. I believe frustration, disappointment, damage, ache, all have been in that soundbite. Look, there isn’t any method the Packers would do something to jeopardize dropping Aaron, except Aaron simply chooses to retire, which I might be shocked. The man’s enjoying higher now than he is ever performed, and with out him, you definitely would not have been even near the place you have been. And I believe the identical will go for subsequent yr, and actually the following few years, if he chooses to play. I would not pay a lot consideration to what he mentioned. I have been there. It is so — I imply, it hurts. It is painful. The very last thing you need to do is consider subsequent yr, since you simply had a serious disappointment, and that’s what you are listening to in that soundbite.
There is a very, very slim probability that Rodgers finally ends up on one other staff to start out the 2021 NFL season, however it’s price noting that the Packers chosen quarterback Jordan Love with their first-round decide within the 2021 draft, which means Inexperienced Bay is wanting towards the long run proper now — no matter how properly Rodgers is enjoying.
Rodgers, 37, is beneath contract with the Packers for 3 extra seasons, with ’22 and ’23 seasonable cap hits ought to he be launched (most unlikely). However, the long run is clearly beginning to creep into Rodgers’ thoughts, which might change issues over the following season.
