The reigning league MVP may either retire, return to the Packers, or play elsewhere.
Green Bay would love to have him back, especially after seeing him finish the 2021 regular season with 4,115 yards, 37 touchdowns, and only four interceptions.
However, there are talks of him signing a short-term deal that will make him the game’s highest-paid player if he decided to return.
If he decides to play elsewhere, the Packers won’t have trouble finding trade partners given Rodgers’ caliber.
But while the veteran’s decision is still in limbo, NFL analyst Andrew Brandt did not paint a positive picture for the Packers’ faithful.
If your spouse/partner of 17 years needs two months to decide whether to keep being your spouse/partner, that's probably not a great sign for your continued relationship. #RodgersPackers

Brandt said, “If your spouse/partner of 17 years needs two months to decide whether to keep being your spouse/partner, that’s probably not a great sign for your continued relationship.”
He does have a point considering that Rodgers shouldn’t have any hiccups in re-joining the team.
Signing a new deal would have happened smoothly even before the Packers made additional restructuring moves.
Likewise, the relationship between Rodgers and Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst has been contentious during the offseason.
But as the year progressed, they have seemed to patch some loose ends.
Rodgers’ Possible Destinations For 2022
The Denver Broncos are one of the strongest suitors for Rodgers because former Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett is already their head coach.
There might be issues regarding the offensive line but that’s not the first time he encountered such an issue.
In contrast, the Indianapolis Colts are a likely destination given their strong line, plus running back Jonathan Taylor.
Finally, Rodgers looking for land in Nashville might signify a move to the Tennessee Titans.
