Too Much Drama
Some Packers executives may justifiably think that Rodgers should retire because he brings too much drama to the franchise. They didn’t appreciate the way he held the team to ransom during his contract extension negotiations. Then the team immediately suffered a downturn and they hold this against him.
His difficult personality isn’t helping matters either because he affects the overall franchise brand. “Sometimes there’s a lot of wisdom in being selective on what you say,” Rodgers told the New York Post in 2022. “This offseason I’ve spent a lot of time working on myself.” It’s a pity that he doesn’t practice what he preaches.
