So what if they negotiate this deal, 12 comes back for 2021, but is free to leave in 2022 and the Packers get nothing for a trade? Seems like a pretty fireable offense to me...

Yeah, that's what I was wondering.  Reworking the contract for one year?  Maybe there's a trade clause in there or something.  I seriously wonder if the Packers will get anything out of this contract other than letting him leave without a cap hit.

No, Chongo, what Schefter is reporting is that Rodgers remains under contract in 2021 and 2022, and that the current final year of his contract (2023) is voided.

Meaning

1) Packers have ability to trade Rodgers following this season if they are so inclined;

2) Both sides can work through 2021 and see whatever โ€œnewโ€ relationship plus team/player success or failure warrants his staying on through 2022.

The more info that's coming out, for what it's worth and it's probably not worth a lot, it sounds more like Rodgers has the ability to pick the team he wants to be traded to as in he wants to be traded after 2021 regardless.  Not sounding like the FO has much say other than to plead with him to stay if Rodgers is so inclined.  Man, I really wonder what trade talks would look like knowing Rodgers has the final call?

He plays for the same money in his contract this year but restructures it for more cap room.

They "re-assess" the relationship next year.

If this is truly the case, the FO should be fucking embarrassed.  It's a victory in that the Packers get one more season of Rodgers with some more cap room but ultimately it's like doing a fucking face plant but avoiding the railing nut shot.

Yeah, this is basically a deal pleading for him to come back so they could actually get something for Rodgers.  Otherwise Pakrz would have to join me on the Carnival of Moronosity around the World or whatever. 







ENJOY!
