However, shortly after the ink dried on the contract, his star receiver, Davante Adams, was sent to Las Vegas.
Without him, things could be tough in Green Bay for the four-time MVP QB.
But even with this challenge before him, he’s sticking with the team.
It’s actually interesting when you look back at comments he’s made about the way things are run in Green Bay.
So will he regret his decision to stick with Green Bay after he was the subject of trade rumors in 2021?
Money Gives Him A Good Reason To Not Regret Staying In Green Bay
While money can be the root of all evil, it’s also a good reason to stick with Green Bay.
The team’s $150.815 million three-year contract extension of Rodgers’ contract gives him a lot to be happy about.
Aaron Rodgers’ new deal is three years, $150 million – but that’s including this year that he already had. So in actuality, it’s really a two-year, $124 million extension.

It makes him one of the highest-paid NFL quarterbacks, something that he’s worth to Green Bay.
However, his contract has caused issues with the team and their salary cap situation.
Had this contract restructuring came sooner, maybe they could have kept some of the key players they’ve parted ways with over the years.
But with Rodgers, it’s all about the money, as some people have suspected.

However, that money will mean nothing if he can’t succeed beyond the regular season in Green Bay.
Rodgers Could Regret Deal To Stay If He Doesn’t Make The Super Bowl
While Rodgers has won one Super Bowl in his career, that’s all he’s got.
However, that might be difficult for him in Green Bay without the guy who was key in his MVP title reign in 2020 and 2021.
But that’s not the only drawback with Green Bay, as they also lost key players on both offense and defense in 2022.
Without those players, it becomes harder for Rodgers to have everything he needs to win games.
No matter how great fans feel he is, he can’t stop opponents when they have the ball on offense.
If he doesn’t make the Super Bowl in the next three years, his legacy won’t be as great.
So the pressure is on him to deliver in Green Bay after the payday he’s gotten in 2022.
It’s not even up for debate for @shaepeppler on which QB has the most pressure this upcoming season.

Rodgers Will Be A Brett Favre Clone If He Doesn’t Win Another Super Bowl
Packers fans love Brett Favre, but hate how he only won one Super Bowl in Titletown U.S.A.
Rodgers is currently following the path of Favre a little too closely.
With him failing to deliver postseason wins at home, his fan base is believing he’s a Favre clone.
He literally only needed 2 or 3 1st downs to win it. He has become a Favre playoff clone only with better stats. Rodgers is a choker.

Unless he gets a Super Bowl win in Green Bay, this is his future legacy with his fans.
Fans will see him as the talented quarterback who always chokes in the playoffs, just like Favre did late in his Green Bay career.NEXT: Can Aaron Rodgers Create The Next Davante Adams?
