Aaron Rodgers reportedly set to play for Green Bay in 2021

It has been reported that quarterback Aaron Rodgers is returning to the Green Bay Packers for the 2021 season after months of dispute with the team’s front office.

General manager Brian Gutekunst said that he was “hopeful” the NFL’s most valuable player would return, although Rodgers is yet to officially confirm the report. Previously, the 37-year-old criticized the club’s “character and culture.”

Rodgers has been distancing himself from the team. He also skipped the mandatory minicamp. According to ESPN, he is currently at home in California, away from this week’s training camp in Wisconsin.

However, ESPN also reported that he and the Packers are finalizing some adjustments to his contract. It was hoped the changes would persuade him to return to Green Bay.

The changes would give the team more cap room without compromising his $21 million salary for the 2021 season. The club is to review his situation at the end of the season, opening a possibility of the team trading him next year.
