Aaron Rodgers is willing to make ‘adjustments’ to his current $150m Green Bay Packers contract IF he plays next season as he admits he still has to do what he wants to do

Aaron Rodgers admitted that if he plays next season his contract will not be viable for most teams around the league including the Green Bay Packers.

Green Bay’s star quarterback is set to make a guaranteed $59.465 million if he plays through 2023 because of the $150m three-year contract extension he agreed to in March. The deal has a salary-cap charge of $31,623,570 for 2023.

“A lot of teams, because of COVID, are strapped, and you see with a lot of different contracts, they’re pushing more money into deals,” Rodgers said in Pat McAfee Show.

‘They’re doing void years to allow for easier cap hits, so there definitely needs to be some adjustment.’

‘I never thought there would be a scenario where I would come back and that would be the number [$60m]. Things really need to change.’

Along with deciding if he wants to play in the NFL next year, Rodgers must also decide if he wants to play for the Packers next season.

‘All other ideas about [a] trade and so on, that’s just speculation until I decide what I want to do moving forward for myself,’ he added.

‘Hopefully there will be some gratitude on both sides if that happens. But, again, that doesn’t open the door for any speculation, frankly, on my part. And I don’t say that to sound mysterious. I have to find out what I want to do, and then we’ll see where all the parties are and what kind of events after that.’

ESPN’s NFL Insider Adam Schefter noted that Rodgers has a ‘real possibility’ of being traded away from the Packers this offseason.

Rodgers’ contract, however, currently makes it a realistically high and expensive task to trade him elsewhere without first renegotiating the deal.

Aside from the aforementioned cap charge of more than $30m for the upcoming NFL season there are options to extend Rodgers’ deal for 2025 and 2026 with cap charges of $59.302m and $53.452m respectively if he stays in Green Bay .

If a team were to trade for Rodgers before the contract or the options on his deal were re-exercised, the team trading for him would incur charges of $32.5m in 2024, $51.10m in 2025, and $45.53m in 2026.

The Packers have reportedly set a minimum asking price of two first-round picks to trade Rodgers, and it seems teams may be willing to meet this fee if the financial side of the deal becomes more attractive. attraction

Two teams already linked to Rodgers are the New York Jets who NBC Sports reported would be ‘happy to pay freight,’ while the Indianapolis Colts are also said to be interested, according to ESPN.
