The atmosphere within the Green Bay Packers front office must be tense.
They are facing the possibility of losing reigning league MVP Aaron Rodgers.
While nothing is certain yet, the sequence of upcoming events dictates that Rodgers has made a decision.
So let's recap:
– A 'thankful' iG post to the Packers from Aaron Rodgers tonight.
– A Rodgers interview on Pat McAfee show tomorrow.
– Packers announce GM Brian Gutekunst will have a press conference on Wednesday.
Yeah. The Aaron Rodgers decision is, um, coming NOW.

FOX Sports Radio’s Jason Smith tweeted a quick recap on what has happened and what will occur in the coming days.
He referenced the lengthy Instagram post wherein Rodgers basically expressed gratitude to the Packers organization and actress Shailene Woodley.
Rodgers included ten photos in that update, but the image wherein he’s not present is the most striking of all.
Then, he will have an interview on The Pat McAfee Show which has been his platform to clarify matters throughout the season.
A day after the interview, Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst will be having a press conference.
Smith ended his tweet with, “The Aaron Rodgers decision is, um, coming NOW.”
What Will Aaron Rodgers Do?
Rodgers has three options: remain in Green Bay, play for another team, or retire.
The tone of his Instagram post may lead to speculations that he has played his last NFL game.
He copied Tom Brady who recently retired after 22 NFL seasons by thanking everyone that guided him along his journey.
However, thanking Gutekunst during his acceptance speech as MVP could also indicate a better relationship between the two.
They started on the wrong note before the 2021 season when Rodgers criticized how the Packers have dealt with high-character veterans in the past.
But the improved ties could mean that he will finish his career playing a few more seasons in Green Bay.
Yet transferring to another team will be the update that will get the most headlines, if it does happen.
After all, there’s a handful of NFL squads who feel that they are one quarterback away from becoming competitors.
