While there have been reports regarding the terms of the deal he will sign, his new contract can’t become official until the first day of the 2022 league year on March 16.
There has been much drama revolving around the four-time MVP’s decision, making his every move breaking news.
The lengthy Instagram post of gratitude he had was seen as a possibility of leaving the game for good or moving on from Green Bay.
With Rodgers coming back, the Packers will retain their chance of winning another Super Bowl, as this tweet discussed.
You can talk all you want about the Packers consistently coming up short. Their best chance at a Super Bowl still is, by far, with Aaron Rodgers. Period.

However, it takes a team to win the Super Bowl.
That said, Rodgers’ new deal will be structured in such a way to make it flexible to sign other players like Davante Adams.
When that happens, the NFC North and the rest of the conference are in trouble.

Getting the flexibility to beef up their roster will make the Packers legitimate contenders again.
Sorry Loss For The Denver Broncos
In the end, Rodgers’ decision boiled down to three options: retirement, the Packers, and the Denver Broncos.
They were right there in potentially getting one of the best quarterbacks as of the present.
Unfortunately, the MVP chose to stay put and try to win another title for the team that drafted him.
However, the Packers now have a new offensive coordinator after Nathaniel Hackett became the Broncos head coach.
Friendly reminder again: Nathaniel Hackett was NOT hired to land Aaron Rodgers.
Hackett was hired because he was the best candidate.

Denver will also continue their search for a quarterback and consider the options available in the market.
