The reigning league MVP has the choice to either retire, stay with the Packers, or play for another team.
Any option would be a hot topic, especially when sources revealed that Rodgers is seeking a short-term deal worth $50 million annually to remain as the Packers’ quarterback.
But even if Green Bay is already crafting that deal, there’s still no certainty regarding Rodgers’ decision.
With Rodgers still possibly on the move, The Athletic’s beat writer for the Packers, Matt Schneidman, shared an interesting update from general manager Brian Gutekunst.
Brian Gutekunst on how many GMs have approached him this week about Aaron Rodgers: “Not a single person.”

Schneidman shared, “Brian Gutekunst on how many GMs have approached him this week about Aaron Rodgers: ‘not a single person.'”
That’s a surprising update considering Rodgers’ talent and stature.
Why Are Teams Not Inquiring About Rodgers?
Several factors come into play regarding the stale market for Rodgers.
First, the $50 million asking price might have discouraged other teams, knowing that they must trim their rosters further.
Second, they are uncertain of Rodgers’ production especially come playoffs.
Third, they are waiting for the quarterback’s decision, which he said will be done by “early March.”
However, it seems like both sides are painting a picture of Rodgers playing elsewhere.
The quarterback shared a lengthy Instagram post wherein he expressed gratitude to his teammates and coaches.
But he did mention in an interview on The Pat McAfee Show that it meant nothing.
If he was able to hide his vaccination status, what’s leading you to believe that his update is not goodbye?
Likewise, the Packers’ official Twitter account shared a photo regarding their upcoming game in the United Kingdom without Rodgers in it.
Are they subtly spilling the beans with these updates?
Only Rodgers can confirm nor deny.
