Packers fan Andrew Larsen imagined the choice situation of Rodgers’ departure, imagining the Packers might have rebuilt with loads of capital the way in which the Seahawks are hoping to do with the Russell Wilson commerce to Denver.

“If the Pack might have gotten a haul for Rodgers, after which tagged and traded (Davante) Adams to the Raiders for one more No. 1, they’d have been in place to essentially reload, together with holding many veterans,” Larsen mentioned.

Because the Packers determined to maintain Rodgers and are anticipated to signal Davante Adams, Packers followers anticipate one factor: a Tremendous Bowl in return for the huge contract.

“I need to suppose that with, hopefully, getting key guys again, not getting as many harm in 2022, higher schedule, new, high quality particular groups coach, and many others., that they’ll be within the thick of it once more,” Larsen mentioned.
