Appearing on the Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested the Green Bay Packers could make a play for one of the veteran wide receivers still without a home. The free-agent receivers Rapoport called out included Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham Jr.and Julio Jones. It remains to be seen if the Packers feel confident with their current trio of wide receivers in Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkinsand second-round rookie Christian Watson out of North Dakota State. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a history of trusting his veterans and is now without Davante Adamsand Marquez Valdes-Scantling. An incentive-laden deal could make an addition very realistic for Green Bay while presenting an opportunity for any of these receivers to have a meaningful role on a contender. Landry led this group of free agents last year with only 570 yards receiving. After arriving with the Los Angeles Rams, Beckham certainly looked revived but is coming off an ACL tear in the Super Bowl. Jones battled a hamstring injury for most of the year and had the worst season of his career. A signing would be good news for Rodgers, but would provide limited standalone value and would cap the value on Lazard and Watson.
Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks, whom the Titans took No. 18 overall in the NFL Draft, was the player Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers did the most homework on and wanted in the first round.
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will skip voluntary team meetings and workouts, which begin Monday, April 18, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The Green Bay Packers "would love" to find a true No. 1 wide receiver during the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, according to insider Jordan Schultz. The team holds pick Nos. 22 and 28 this year and is in the market for a new alpha wideout after trading Davante Adams to the Raiders. Schultz notes that the Packers haven't used a first-round pick on a wide receiver during the Aaron Rodgers era, but he also acknowledges that these are unprecedented times for the team. Green Bay lost Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling this offseason, leaving them with Allen Lazard as their top wideout. Schultz sees prospects Jameson Williams, Treylon Burks, and Jahan Dotson as potential targets for the Packers.
After a week of going back and forth with the Green Bay Packers, quarterback Aaron Rodgers' complicated new contract will pay him $50 million per year over three years for a total of $150 million. The deal includes the 2022 season, so in actuality, it's a two-year, $124 million contract extension. Rodgers will get $42 million this year, $59.515 million in 2023 and $49.3 million in 2024, which equals out to $150.815 million over the next three years. The first two years are fully guaranteed at signing. The 38-year-old back-to-back MVP will likely retire after the 2024 season when the contract is over. With Rodgers back, the Packers must now focus on getting a long-term deal done with wide receiver Davante Adams, who says he won't play on the franchise tag. Rodgers will be a no-brainer QB1 in 2022.
Updating an earlier report, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will make $42 million in 2022, $59.515 million in 2023 and $49.3 million in 2024. The first two years are guaranteed. His cap numbers are $28.5 million, $31.6 million and $40.7 million.
Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' new contract was finalized Tuesday, March 15. It's a four-year extension with two placeholder years on the back end. The deal lowers his cap number.
Fantasy Spin: Davante Adams said he's not going to play on the franchise tag. Does Rodgers' deal create the room needed to sign Adams? He'll need him to remain a top-five QB in fantasy.
Linebacker De'Vondre Campbell will return to Green Bay on a five-year, $50 million deal. Despite the team's salary cap concerns, the front office appears committed to getting Aaron Rodgers everything he needs to win another Super Bowl by bringing back a familiar face on the defensive end. While most thought Campbell's best days were behind him, his career was resurrected in Green Bay by finishing with a career-high 146 tackles along with two sacks and two interceptions. The veteran also had less than six tackles in a game only twice during the 2021-22 campaign, so he's someone to watch for managers in IDP formats.
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers agreed to a four-year, $200 million deal Tuesday, March 8, that makes him the highest-paid player in NFL history. He'll receive $153 million guaranteed.
Fantasy Spin: This should answer lingering questions about his future. The deal should open enough space to franchise tag Davante Adams, and things are status quo for the high-end QB1 in fantasy.
The Green Bay Packers have agreed to a four-year deal with reigning MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The deal is worth $200 million and it makes Rodgers the highest paid player in league history. The contract includes $153 million guaranteed and Rodgers' salary cap number is going down as well. We can finally put an end to any of the speculation of Rodgers landing in a new home or of Jordan Love taking over the reigns in Green Bay. The 38-year-old Rodgers is now well positioned to finish his career as a Packer.
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' potential landing spots have been narrowed down to the Packers, Denver Broncos, Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio. He wrote, 'Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Rodgers has specific deals lined up with other teams -- and those teams have trade compensation lined up with the Packers. The potential moves have been arranged, essentially, with the permission of the Packers.'
Fantasy Spin: There's really not much to say about his fantasy worth without knowing where he'll play, but none of the situations are terrible. It would be best for his stock to remain with the Packers, although a move to Denver would provide ample weapons out of the gate and a familiar coaching connection. Pittsburgh's weaponry isn't as stout, but we're confident the Steelers could lure some additional help in free agency if Rodgers were to wind up there. Tennessee is intriguing. The line is solid, the receiving corps has playmakers, and Derrick Henry's presence is an undeniable reality for defensive attention. Any of these locations would keep Rodgers in the middle of QB1 territory.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is expected to make his decision on whether he will return to the Packers for the 2022 season by Tuesday, which is the deadline for teams to use the franchise tag. Rodgers' decision could very well come on his semi-regular appearance on the Pat McAfee show on Tuesday. The Packers have a decision to make on whether to use an $18.5 million franchise tag on wide receiver Davante Adams by Tuesday's deadline. If Rodgers chooses to play elsewhere, it's expected that the Denver Broncos would be at the top of his list. The Broncos would likely have to give up two first-round picks and a high second-round pick to land Rodgers, who has won back-to-back MVP awards.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers reportedly is deciding between the Pittsburgh Steelers, Denver Broncos, Tennessee Titans, and the Packers. According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Rodgers has specific deals lined up with other teams, and those teams have trade compensation lined up with the Packers. "The destinations are believed to be exclusively in the AFC. To little surprise, the Broncos are one of them. Other viable possibilities are, we're told, the Titans and Steelers," per Florio. Retirement is not an option for the 2021 NFL MVP, and he is expected to return in 2022. It was reported earlier that he was "truly torn" on whether he wanted to come back but will return to play this upcoming season for either Pittsburgh, Green Bay, Tennessee, or Denver. The 38-year-old was impressive last season, throwing for 4,115 yards, 37 touchdowns, four interceptions while rushing for 101 yards, and three scores last year. Rodgers is expected to decide soon but will remain a high-end fantasy QB1 regardless of where he suits up in 2022.
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has still not decided where he wants to play next season, according to sources.
Fantasy Spin: It seems like Rodgers would be staying with the Packers, but he appears undecided about his future. He likely will be making his decision in the near future, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation. He is coming of an MVP season in 2021 and should be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he decides to play next season.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is truly torn on where he wants to play in 2022, according to sources. Many in the NFL expect him to return after winning his second straight MVP award, and there's a lot of positivity in Green Bay, but he continues to go back and forth on what he wants. Rodgers plans to give the Packers an answer before the new league year begins on March 16, and all signs have been pointing to him returning to the Packers, especially after they hired long-time quarterbacks coach Tom Clements. However, nothing is set in stone just yet, and there remains a chance that Rodgers is donning a different uniform next season. Wherever he's playing, he'll be high-end QB1 target for fantasy managers after another impressive season in 2021.
Signs have been pointing towards Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers playing for the team in 2022. Head coach Matt LaFleur said that Rodgers played a "significant role" in the Packers hiring old quarterbacks coach Tom Clements. Relations between Rodgers and the front office have been much better this offseason after general manager Brian Gutekunst involved the QB more in decisions that directly affected his job. The Athletic's Matt Schneidman said it seems to be the worst-kept secret at this week's NFL combine that Rodgers isn't going anywhere. It feels that the time is coming soon for Rodgers to sign an extension with Green Bay that will extend him several more seasons beyond the one left on his current deal. The back-to-back NFL MVP will surely be in high demand in 2022 fantasy drafts.
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers remaining in a Packers' uniform next season and beyond 'seems to be the worst-kept secret at the NFL Combine, according to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic.
Fantasy Spin: This has been the prevailing opinion for weeks. However, there is the small issue of trying to fit Rodgers, who may end up being the highest-paid player in the league, and Davante Adams, who will likely be the league's highest-paid receiver if he isn't franchise-tagged, on a roster that still needs to clear nearly $32 million over the next week or so to get under the salary cap. Needless to say, Green Bay has some work to do, but it appears the Packers will be doing it with the four-time MVP under center.
Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said he's not getting trade offers from other general managers on quarterback Aaron Rodgers at this week's NFL scouting combine. Rodgers has yet to inform the Packers of his decision on whether he wants to play in 2022, so perhaps other teams are waiting to put in their trade offers until they know if Rodgers will play next season. The 38-year-old is expected to have a decision before the new league year begins on March 16. If Rodgers doesn't play in Green Bay next year, the team would get between $19.3 million and $26.9 million in salary cap savings, depending on the timing of the decision. If Rodgers returns, he would count $46.1 million against the cap, but that would be lowered by an extension.
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is reportedly negotiating a 'short-term deal' with the team that would make him the highest-paid player in the league, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.
Fantasy Spin: Teams can usually find a way to clear money off of their cap for a player they really want to keep. The problem in Green Bay right now is that the Packers are still roughly $32 million over the cap and want to bring back Davante Adams, who will likely bring a cap charge of over $20 million if he is franchised. None of this accounts for the additional room needed to accommodate a huge deal for Rodgers. Needless to say, Green Bay has a lot of work to do over the next week or so if it wants to keep Rodgers and Adams together for at least one more year.
The Green Bay Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers' representation are working on a short-term deal should he decide to remain in Green Bay. It would be a short-term deal that would make Rodgers the highest-paid player in the NFL on a per-year basis. "Obviously everything around here centers around the quarterback. That's kind of how we do things," Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said on Feb. 23. Rodgers, 38, doesn't plan to drag out his decision, but says there is a lot to consider. Despite an early playoff exit, Rodgers won his second consecutive MVP award in 2021 and ended the year on good terms with team brass. Should he continue playing, the four-time MVP doesn't want to be part of a rebuild. If Rodgers is playing in 2022, wherever that may be, he should be a strong QB1 consideration in fantasy.
