Odds Favor Aaron Rodgers Returning to Green Bay

Odds on where Aaron Rodgers will start next season

Would Aaron Rodgers leave Green Bay?

Rodgers, coming off one of the best years ever by a quarterback statistically, is on his way to winning his third NFL MVP award after throwing for 4,299 yards and 48 touchdowns to just five interceptions.

However, after losing the NFC championship game and falling short of the Super Bowl for the second consecutive season, Rodgers raised some eyebrows with one of his comments in a post-game press conference: “There are a lot of guys’ futures that are uncertain, myself included.”

What this means for Rodgers’ future in Green Bay is unknown. Was it simply the raw emotions of yet another gut-wrenching playoff loss or was he implying that he wants out of Green Bay after 16 seasons?

Online sportsbook Bovada has released odds on where Aaron Rodgers will play for the 2021 season, with the Packers leading the way at -550, followed by the San Francisco 49ers (+800) and New Orleans Saints (+850) as the top three choices on the board.

Will Rodgers Actually Leave Green Bay?

You can look at the Deshaun Watson situation in Houston as a comparable, with a franchise quarterback asking to be traded, though Watson has only been in Houston for four years.

Rodgers, who turned 37 in December, can make a similar request if he decides he wants out. He still has three years remaining on his contract, so for now he is linked to the Green Bay Packers, which is why they are the -550 betting favorite in Aaron Rodgers odds.

Rodgers was recently on The Pat McAfee Show and said: “I don’t think that there’s any reason why I wouldn’t be back.” That sounds like he’s trying to silence the analysts and pundits who think he might want to move elsewhere.

The MVP of Super Bowl 45 is the only quarterback in NFL history to lose four conference championship games, with all of those losses coming in the last seven seasons. On top of that, the Packers drafted Utah State quarterback Jordan Love in the first round last year to be his heir apparent.

Rodgers has spoken at length about that selection, saying he was not happy with the organization’s choice to do that. At the end of the day, it might be a case of better the devil you know, but don’t think for a second that Rodgers playing for another team is out of the question.

Best Value: San Francisco 49ers

Back in 2005, the 49ers had the first overall draft pick and rather than taking hometown kid Aaron Rodgers, who grew up idolizing Joe Montana and the 49ers, they went with Alex Smith. Rodgers fell to the 24th pick, the Packers snatched him up and the rest is history.

Well, now could be the time to rewrite history or at the very least change it. The 49ers are rumored to be exploring options to move on from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and without question, Rodgers would be their top option. They are currently second in Aaron Rodgers odds at +800.

Going Back To Cali

If Rodgers were to go to San Francisco, he would be playing with offensive-minded head coach Kyle Shanahan, and he would be going to an organization with one of the best defensive units in the league.

The Niners don’t have an offensive weapon on the level of Davante Adams, but they do have a solid offensive line, a great running game and a tight end in George Kittle who is one of the best in the game. They also have some explosive young wideouts in Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel.

If the 49ers and general manager John Lynch do show interest in Rodgers and are willing to give up a lot of draft capital, then as Marlon Brando said as Vito Corleone in The Godfather: “I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.”
