There is a new update regarding where quarterback Aaron Rodgers will play in 2022. Well, it’s more of a non-update, if we are being completely honest.
The NFL world is waiting patiently for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to make his decision on where to play in 2022. The real question is if he will return to Green Bay for another season or decide a trade to another team would be in his best interest.
On Friday night, there was an update. And by update, we mean more of a non-update.
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, Rodgers is “truly torn” on where he wants to play in 2022. Rapoport notes that while many believe that he will return to the Packers, Rodgers is going back and forth with his decision.
Packers: Aaron Rodgers reportedly ‘truly torn’ on where to play in 2022
Seeing the notification pop up, fans had to believe that Rapoport was breaking news that Rodgers finally made his decision. With the update that Rodgers is still making up his mind, some thought it was convenient timing that it took place during the NFL Combine.
Speaking of the NFL Combine, Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst revealed during his meeting with the media that there was no new update on Rodgers’ status for the 2022 season. Additionally, Gutekunst said that he has not received any new trade offers from teams.
Rodgers is coming off his second consecutive season holding the NFL MVP award after completing 68.9-percent of his passes for 4,115 yards, 37 touchdowns and four interceptions in 16 regular-season games in 2021.
For those of you expecting a decision from Rodgers, it has not happened yet. Nothing to see here, please disperse and enjoy your Friday night.
Update: During the NFL Combine on Friday night, Rapoport spoke further on his report, saying that Rodgers is going “back and forth.” Rich Eisen asked Rapoport where was the forth, to which he replied “it has always been the Denver Broncos.”
And just like that, Broncos fans are going to be up all night thinking about Rodgers potentially asking for a trade to Denver. Best thing to do is just wait for Rodgers to announce his decision himself. It will happen…eventually.
