1. Aaron Rodgers
The long-serving Packers quarterback is a Green Bay icon. However, it all came to a head in 2021 after he seemingly demanded his way out of town. In short, Rodgers tried to force an exit because he was tired of where the team was going. The reigning NFL MVP was tired of their inability to build a winning team. He knew that he was near the end of his career and wanted to play for contender before he suffered a decline.
Many fans believed that he was a traitor because the franchise paid him massive money. But it’s fair to say that Mike McCarthy wasted some of the best years of Rodgers’ career. While he won a single Super Bowl, it was difficult for him to watch rivals like Tom Brady win more. To sum up, the Packers mishandled their roster as well as their contract negotiations with their superstar. Despite this, Rodgers returned to the Packers and will lead them into 2021 as of now.
