Quoted from CrazyLevi:
If they can't cajole Rodgers back onto the field in 2021, the Packers are basically fucked. Not really a way out of this for them.
There's not really a way out of this for Rodgers.. He's under contract. He can retire (which would suck for our cap situation), but that's his only real leverage. He doesn't have a no-trade clause. What situation is better for him than GB? He'd rather play in DEN? Good luck, especially after they trade us their blue chip players to make that deal happen.
I think he wanted to go to SF, and they passed on him (AGAIN!). LAR seemed like they were a potential suitor, too, but that obviously didn't work out. Maybe no one really wants to deal with his shit? So his options are suddenly limited.
I don't think the public reaction was what he was expecting. Now you're starting to see some of his buddies with media connections start to soften his message and walk some things back. Just today James Jones says that 12 doesn't want Gutey fired and thinks everything is 'fixable'.
