According to Rich Eisen, the Green Bay Packers don’t want to end their relationship with Aaron Rodgers, but hope he retires or decides to play elsewhere.

Rodgers was drafted by the Packers in 2005 and has not played for another NFL team since joining the NFL. But that could be about to change, although retirement is also an option.

Speaking on his podcast, The Rich Eisen Show, on Monday, Eisen said he heard the Packers were hopeful the quarterback would leave.

“They sure hope that when he makes his decision it will be ‘I want to retire’ or ‘I want to be traded somewhere else,’” Eisen said as part of his top five NFL Combine rumors of the week. last.

The Packers appear to have ditched Rodgers after what has been a rocky relationship, especially in recent years.

Another report from Michael Silver of Bally Sportsin which a “high-level Packers source” was quoted, notes that Green Bay has finished “begging Rodgers to come back on his terms.”

The team wants no less than 100% commitment from the veteran when it comes to off-season training and wants him to work closely with his young wide receivers such as Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs. Watson struggled to stay on the same page with Rodgers last season and they were out of sync until he caught three touchdown passes in Week 10 in an overtime win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Barring the above, the Packers are believed to be ready to part ways as they believe the player’s dedication began to wane after he signed a three-year contract worth $150.8 million last March.
