Mike Golic Sr. had some advice for Aaron Rodgers as he makes his decision on where to play in 2022: Stay with the Packers or go to a surprise suitor.

The Aaron Rodgers-Packers saga occupied much of the 2021 offseason and it’s set up to occupy even more of 2022.

Where will the quarterback decide to play? There are so many options, it’s impossible to even guess.

FanSided’s Mark Carman asked Mike Golic Sr. to weigh in on Rodgers’ decision-making process.

First and foremost, Golic gave some pretty clear advice: “Stay in Green Bay.”

“I’m partial to Green Bay but it is head scratching that they can have such a great regular-season record but just can’t get it done in the playoffs.”

The other option? San Francisco.

“They got a lot of great talent out there on both sides of the ball,” Golic said.

He acknowledged it would be tough to enter that division with the Rams also vying for the top spot. However, Golic argues for the 49ers over somewhere like Denver when it comes to talent.

“I think there’s more talent in San Francisco,” he said.

Rodgers was born in Chico, CA and went to school in Berkeley, so there is a fit in that sense.

The complicated part is knowing the 49ers just spent a No. 3 draft pick on Trey Lance and they already have Jimmy Garoppolo to deal with.

Then again, they were in the NFC Championship with Jimmy G. What could they do with Rodgers at the helm? It could be an enticing prospect on several levels for a quarterback looking to win championships.
