According to several reports last week, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is not happy in Green Bay and looking for an exit.
Rodgers' frustrations with the team likely stem from a couple of factors: First, there was the team's decision to draft his eventual replacement, Jordan Love, in the 2020 NFL Draft. Second, a terrible coaching decision cost the Packers a shot at the Super Bowl.
But Rodgers' potential exit from Green Bay wouldn't be easy to navigate. The team probably isn't keen to let the reigning MVP go, and recouping similar value in a trade would be all but impossible for a player of Rodgers' caliber.
If the Packers refuse to trade Rodgers, he could go scorched Earth, either by refusing to play the year or - in an extreme move - declaring his retirement. Such a decision would be quite costly for Rodgers. If he decided to retire, he'd have to give as much as $44.5 million back to the team between forfeited bonus money and salary.
Former Packers quarterback Brett Favre said that even given the high price of walking away, he wouldn't be surprised if Rodgers made the move.
"Knowing Aaron, and I think I know him fairly well, if he has a grudge - whether it be against the organization or a player or an arch-rival, or family, friends - he ain't budging," Favre said on his podcast.
Referring to the issues between Rodgers and the Packers, Favre added: "If it's not resolved, or even if it's resolved but he feels like they have one up on him, he ain't gonna play. Knowing Aaron, he would sit. Now, he would forego a lot of money, but he's also got a lot money."
It would be an extraordinary decision for Rodgers to walk away from football after the season that was arguably the greatest of his career, but it's not impossible. Like Favre said, it would be an expensive move for Rodgers, but it's not like he can't afford it.
