He signed a three-year, $150 million deal, making him the highest-paid player in the league in terms of annual average value.
It’s uncertain whether his contract was the wedge that ended the link between the Packers and All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams.
Rodgers and Adams have been one of the best quarterback-receiver tandems in the league, and it’s difficult to see where the Packers go from the wideout’s departure.
However, the quarterback remains the most critical position in football.
Get it right, and the team will have more opportunities to win.
But aside from returning to Green Bay himself, Rodgers is also inviting former staff to return like Tom Clements.
The 68-year-old coach will return as the Packers’ quarterbacks coach, a position he last held in 2011.
What brought Tom Clements back as Packers QB coach?
“Delta,” he joked.
Actually, he said Rodgers reached out to gauge his interest. At that point, Clements felt fairly sure that Rodgers was coming back.

ESPN NFL Nation writer for the Packers Rob Demovsky tweeted Clements’ statements during a recent press conference.
“What brought Tom Clements back as Packers QB coach? ‘Delta,’ he joked. Actually, he said Rodgers reached out to gauge his interest. At that point, Clements felt fairly sure that Rodgers was coming back. ‘That was my first question: What are (you) thinking?’ Clements said.”
What Does Clements Bring To The Table?
He was the quarterbacks coach when Rodgers won Super Bowl XLV over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
He also became Green Bay’s offensive coordinator from 2012 to 2014 and assistant head coach from 2015 to 2016.
Rodgers feels that Clements’ return will help him identify and improve any weaknesses in his game.
Therefore, the reigning MVP wants to become the best quarterback he can be, especially now that the team needs him more.
The 38-year-old quarterback feels that bringing back Clements is also crucial to the team’s success.
