I really thought he would come back for one more season. But maybe there's just too much turnover about to happen in Tampa to make it worthwhile.
I wonder if this affects Rogers thinking in any way? Why would he want to leave GB now? Without Brady in Tampa that takes out one of the few actual contenders in the NFC. And if Rogers left the Packers and the NFC, where would that leave the conference? SF likely going with Trey Lance, not sure about the Rams cap situation but they are built to win now, and Green Bay without Rogers. Yeessshhh. That might leave the Cowboys as the favorite.
The salary cap pigeons are coming home to roost in Green Bay for 2022. They currently project to be some $60 million over the cap next year if draft choices, practice squad players and free agents are factored into the equation.
The Packers went all in for 2021 and now they have some serious personnel decisions to make, none of which include bringing back Davante Adams. Even if the NFC projects to be less imposing next season, well, so do the Packers. Is Rodgers going to want to return to a team that may be clipping coupons in 2022?
