Robert Tonyan: I am ready to win a Super Bowl whenever Aaron Rodgers returns

Will he or won’t he?

Will Aaron Rodgers return as the Packers’ starting quarterback in 2021 or not? That is the multi-million-dollar question.

Even Rodgers’ teammates have no idea how the standoff between the league MVP and the Packers is going to work out.

Packers tight end Robert Tonyan, who signed his tender with the team earlier this week, talks to Rodgers regularly. They don’t talk about Rodgers’ future, Tonyan said Friday on The Rich Eisen Show.

“Aaron’s been the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers for 16 years. I’ve been the tight end for four years. I think that’s above my pay grade,” Tonyan said. “I don’t want to talk for him and all that stuff. That’s just a business thing. I’m just going to continue to get better and play tight end for the Green Bay Packers. If, when or whatever happens and Aaron comes back, I’m ready, and there’s no gray area with me. I’m ready to hit the ground running and win a Super Bowl whenever he’s back.”

“Whenever he’s back” indicates Tonyan believes Rodgers will return. Or maybe it’s based on hope.

Rodgers’ absence was conspicuous during this week’s organized team activities, though.

“With any teammate who’s important to you, whoever’s important to you, you want him there,” Tonyan said. “You’re not thinking about the whole situation and the whole process. I think we’re just missing our teammate.”

In three seasons, Tonyan has 66 catches for 763 yards and 13 touchdowns.

  1. Good luck. Considering Rodgers has only one super bowl ring in his very long career.

  2. Robert Tonyan: “Whatever happens I am ready to go win a Super Bowl”

    Those outside of Wisconsin, & 1265 Lombardi, think about this much more than anyone inside.

    Bobby talks to Aaron and said he misses his teammate, but also said Jordan is doing great running the show, and that this a valuable time for him.

    The focus for the team is solely on getting prepared for the season. Laser focused on getting better each day.

    Another myopic Packer fan thiking they can win a Super Bowl without A A Ron. Wasn’t it a week or two ago they said Love wasn’t ready but now he is? I dunno what I’m more tired of the A A Ron drama or the Packer fan rationalizations.Get over it he ain’t coming back and if he does, that doesn’t guarantee another 13-3season. You actually think he’s gonna give 100 % when he has told everyone he doesn’t want to be there? SMDH

  5. Stick with Love. The Madden Simulation had him winning the SuperBowl this year two out of three times. It’s been accurate 64% of the time since 2004. Rodgers had better decide soon what he wants.

    Gotta link for that 64% accurate? Yeah trust a video game. Dude dudnt even dress last year. Wanna share what you’re smoking? Love is not taking the Packers to the Super Bowl this year.😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  7. Rodgers ain’t taking this team anywhere. the defense is still a weak sister with no defensive improvement.

  8. Take it up with Madden. It makes no difference to me. None of it. It’s just a game.

  9. Rodgers is playing, for the Packers. This year. Stop kidding yourselves.

  10. Rodgers is 1-4 in NFC Championship Games to get into the Super Bowl. That’s primarily on him as the leader of this offense. As great has he can be during most games of the regular season, at least at Lambeau, he is neither clutch nor a winner when playing QB against the elite teams in the playoffs.
    Time to move on to another QB as 11 years of futile attempts to even play in another Super Bowl is quite enough for Mr. Rodgers. I would have liked to see how Tim Boyle would do at QB this season, but he signed with the Lions. Always thought Boyle had potential with a big accurate arm. I’m fine with using the running game and have Bortles and Love play QB game managers.

  11. No one is winning the super bowl this year except for the Washington Magic ! Yeah I rebranded them till management gets off their behinds.
