No official word on any opt outs until Tuesday

The deadline for opting out of the 2021 season has come and gone. There is no news that any player has opted out. The official word won’t come for four more days.

According to the league, no personnel notices will be sent to teams until Tuesday, July 6. No notice was sent today, due presumably to the looming holiday.

This means that, if any player opted out, there will be no official announcement of it until Tuesday. Unless the player announces it or it gets leaked, we won’t know.

It’s safe to assume no one has opted out. We’ll know for certain within roughly 96 hours.

Aaron Rodgers would save more than $20 million by opting out versus sitting out the season. However, PFT reported last week that it was unlikely that Rodgers would pursue that approach.

  1. Gonna be so great watching Mr. Rodgers twist the Pack up and hold them hostage. Get the popcorn ready!

  2. Any player that opts out when there are multiple vaccines should be judged by management as not having the love of the game.

  3. Smh

    Desperate attempt to try and keep the drama going over the holiday weekend.

    I gotta go enjoy my Friday eve and then get ready to take the boat out on Sunday. Some should try to enjoy the holiday as well.

  4. Oh look, the Skipper has a boat and wants everyone to notice. He is welcoming all aboard the SS Minnow for a 3 hour tour. Except Aaron Rodgers. Aaron wants that Packer money, but we Packers fans don’t like him holding out, so he’s already shipwrecked and stranded.

  5. Aaron is not sitting out unless he’s hurt. See him on the practice field come 7/27.

  6. Rodgers isn’t opting out. He’s too much of a competitor. This is a typical Aaron passive agressive message to the franchise he can’t be taken for granted. He’ll be in Green and Gold this year book it.

    You would think if he was that much of a competitor that he would have more than 1 measly SB to show for it.

  8. Went out on the boat last night and will go out again to watch the fireworks on Sunday too – all while I also enjoy the drama out east. Not hard to do both.

    21 other players on a team. Would you say that about Walter Payton? What about guys like Barry Sanders, Dan Marino, Tony Gonzalez, Megatron, etc. who have never won one?

    The goal in the NFL is to win SBs….not to collect personal stats. About those other guys I would say they were good players but did not have what it took to raise the level of play of the guys around them enough to bring home a SB. Aaron puts up some nice personal stats….but he falls woefully short in the only ones that matter: postseason wins and in particular NFCCG and SB wins.

  11. “Any player that opts out when there are multiple vaccines should be judged by management as not having the love of the game.”

    That is NOT a requirement for employment in the NFL. The NFL couldn’t care less about players LOVING the game. As long as they do their job, that’s all that ma matters.

    ANd as far as “everyone can get vaccinated”…that is not true. There are some people, with compromised immune systems, for whom the vaccines do not work. They are the only people that I can see opting out.

  12. “The goal in the NFL is to win SBs….not to collect personal stats.”

    The NFL has been pushing for parity, for years. The odds for any team winning a Superbowl is 1 in 32. Any team that has won more than one Super Bowl in the last 32 years is beating the average.

    Exactly.

    The Belichick/Brady Patriots demolition of that notion over a 20 year span will never be repeated. Takes too much discipline, talent, and maniacal approach to detail for any average franchise to teach consistently or get players to buy into.

    If you believe the odds for any team winning a SB are 1 in 32, you believe the Texans have as much chance of winning it this season as the Chiefs do.

    Sure, an inured Mahomes and a fired up Watson. Any given Sunday, that’s why we watch the game.
