Reply to "Rodgers Wants A New Contract?"

The FO will have to guarantee something beyond the one year. If he came back, and they happened to win a ring this year, would 12 want to stick around longer? Would he retire? Would the desire/need to be traded fade into the mist?

I think they should structure an offer contingent upon reaching or winning the SB. Guarantee two years. If they reach the big dance, build some type of option into the contract, for instance a third year guaranteed, if that's what Rodgers would stipulate. If they win it, the FO gets to exercise some option. Rodgers will be fully compensated and he will be incentivized, the four year deal for Love is still intact, and in the wake of failing to reach or win it all, the GBP would be able to reimplement the post-AR plan.

Just spitballing, and I'd be interested in others' opinions as there's probably things I haven't taken into account, but it's a unique situation that might best be resolved with an outside the box approach.

I love the idea.
