Packers president gives cryptic quote on Rodgers’ future originally appeared nbc sports chicago

Mark Murphy, president of the Green Bay Packers organization, gave a cryptic interview about the future of the team’s longtime Hall of Fame quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.

Rogers has been considering his options for a long time. He entered a “Darkness Retreat” to weigh the options. Since he has returned to the light, he has kept things in the vest.

Except, however, for a trip the New York Jets reportedly paid him to California, confirmed by Murphy. The Packers also allowed the Jets to speak with him. And now things look bleak between the Packers and Rodgers.

When asked if there was a scenario where Rodgers remains the Packers’ starting quarterback, Murphy responded in a confusing, head-turning manner.

Murphy said, “Yeah, I mean as long as things don’t go the we want them to, yeah we will. Obviously he’s a great player.”

things don’t go the we want? Therefore . , , Packers don’t want Rodgers back?

Murphy, of course, voiced it during his interview with local WBAY on Friday. He found his footing with the Packers and reiterated the team’s urge to do well for not only Rodgers but his as well.

He could not help but mention Rodgers’ career in the past tense.

Murphy said, “Very few players play for only one team.” “Brett had a great career here. Aaron had a great career here. And no matter what happens, Aaron will be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He’ll be in our Hall of Fame and we’ll bring him back and retire his number.”

As far as the Packers’ options go beyond Rodgers, they are fully committed to Jordan Love. The Packers selected Love with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The selection then sparked controversy, as Rodgers was clearly at his peak at the time. The Packers decided to use the first-round pick at the position with Rodgers playing at the Hall of Fame level.

Still, the stands by Love as much now as they did when they drafted him three years ago.

“Yeah, we’ve got a lot of confidence in him,” Murphy said of Love. “We drafted him and developed him. A lot of credit goes to our coaches and Jordan. But we think he’s ready.”

Wherever Rodgers goes, it will only help the Bears if he moves away from the NFC North. Moving to the AFC makes things even more comfortable for the Bears.
