Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams post “Last Dance” picture on social media

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver Davante Adams could easily clear up exactly what their intentions are for their futures in Green Bay by using their words on social media. Instead they’ve chosen to use pictures and leave the situation up for interpretation.

Both Rodgers and Adams posted a picture of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen on Instagram on Friday night, leading to a great deal of speculation about what, exactly, they were referencing.

Perhaps they meant they’ll both be back in Green Bay in 2021, but they’ll both be elsewhere in 2022. That would fit with the fact that Jordan and Pippen’s last season with the Chicago Bulls was chronicled last year in the widely viewed documentary, The Last Dance.

Or perhaps by referencing The Last Dance they were suggesting that they’ve already had their last dance together, and Rodgers is preparing to announce his retirement. That’s what some sports books are bracing for.

Or perhaps the identical Instagram posts were a message to Packers General Manager Brian Gutekinst. Rodgers reportedly refers to Gutekinst as Jerry Krause in text messages with teammates, as Krause, the general manager of those championship Bulls teams, was despised by Jordan and Pippen.

Adams has reportedly broken off contract talks as he heads into the final season of his current contract, while Rodgers has made no secret of the fact that he’s dissatisfied with the Packers. Beyond that, Rodgers and Adams are choosing to create social media buzz with cryptic posts, rather than clearing the air once and for all.

  1. Rodgers is no Jordan. Jordan won championships. Amazing how highly valued Rodgers is to himself.

  2. Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen won championships. Honestly, at this point, in all my years cheering for the Packera, I’m not sure I have seen this level of drama queen before. And Brett Favre set the bar pretty high with that.

  3. Rodgers compares himself to Jordan? smh Try someone a little more realistic like Horace Grant!

  4. Rodgers and Adams may THINK they are Jordan and Pippen however they are not even close to the same. Michael and Scottie won multiple championships. Adams has never even been to the Super Bowl while Rodgers has won just one and is 0-4 in his last four NFC title games.

  5. My guess is if Adams broke talks off, he knows Rodgers is gone, whether that is this year or was last year, remains to be seen. The Packers have really botched this entire situation. To have your 2 best players mad at you, means that is on you. Brace yourselves for 5-12 every year Packer fans.

  6. I think its obvious. If Adams has 1 more year remaining, and it making the most sense for the Packers to trade Rodgers AFTER this season (whether he plays this year or not), that whoever gets Rodgers has the inside track to landing Davante Adams too.

  7. Rodgers can be most compared to Dennis Rodman,a great player with a great head problem.will Rodgers go visit Americas Kim,his good friend, at Maralago.

  8. I kind of feel bad for Jordan love, no matter how he turns out, he’s in directly responsible for the fall of the Aaron Rodgers era in Green Bay.

  9. Wow. How can two grown men be so passive aggressive? Just be a man and say what is on your mind.

  10. Another beautiful mystery. One could interpret this to mean Rodgers will show up and this is his last sesaon. He knows it, Packers know it and Adams knows it too. The Packers will part ways with him after next season but before the draft.
    First he gets paid and gives nothing back. He ends up getting traded which is his goal and the pack can start getting mileage out of love or whomever. A clean break for all, one more dance.

  11. Maybe it means they’re going to Chicago…. in exchange for Justin Fields….and…I’m trying to think of another player the Bears have that the Packers would want….there must be one or two.

  12. It’s all about Aaron, isn’t it? First of all, he ruins the Draft, making sure the spotlight’s on him. Then it’s will he, won’t he? all through the summer. Now he’s dragged Adams into this web. Rodgers is a smart man who knows his worth. Adams? Good, not great receiver. With the Packers losing $38m, what kind of money was this fool expecting? Does he not know the Packers will pay Rodgers first and not him? They both need to grow up and stop the childish games.

  13. I hope that the NFL will be able to survive when these guys are no longer playing.

  14. Sad that Adam’s is letting Rodgers scared of confrontation,sensitive, & insecurity change the way he handles business. Adam’s don’t let that man end up messing up the generational wealth for your family that not even born yet! Don’t forget about being a poor / midclass minority in America! Brother! Marcus Spears was 💯% don’t let Rodgers or no man play with yo money!!

  15. Rodgers ain’t retiring, he has to much of an ego to retire now. While both may be playing for the cheese for the final time this year, I think both will be there.

  16. Adam’s 28 will be 29. Pack can easily Franchise Tag him at end of year!!! Then let him hit market after getting 2 more years and lot more miles on that body! Then let him walk into free agency at 30😮 wanted to b highest paid WR ever🤣🤣 Better Smarten up Adam’s! 😄

  17. Two words for these two: Grow up.

    You aren’t teenagers having a Ferris Bueller day off.

  18. Enough with the attempted mind-reading, picture interpretation and analysis of passive-aggressive sullen gestures already. Focus on the things you can control and the rest will take care of itself.

  19. Karma will take it’s rightful place and both players will return for one last year only to both get injured in the first game of the season….Green Bays goes 5-12 and is still strangled by their salaries…

  20. I’ve been a die hard Pack fan for 50 years. I’ve seen Starr, Favre and Rodgers play. I’ve also seen Jerry Tagge, David Whitehurst and Randy Wright. I’ve seen them play in superbowls, I’ve seen them go 8-8 literally for an entire decade, I’ve seen them go 4-12. Right now, I’d take 8-8 or 4-12 for however long it takes to rebuild, even if I don’t live to see it. Get rid of both Rodgers and Adams, in no particular order. Adams is only terrific because he’s got Rodgers. Rodgers isn’t worth the drama. No team can compete with 1/3 of their salary cap locked up in two guys.

  21. This is all for show.

    Rodgers and Adams will be playing for the Packers this year. Rodgers is just being passive-aggressive…basically giving payback for not being included in team decisions.

    It’s childish, but it is what it is.

    Rodgers is playing this year.

    —————————-

    I think the point is that the Packers management can’t be trusted to take care of the things they can control.

  23. Meanwhile, Tom Brady and his entire team reported for training camp this morning and are working hard to try to return to the Super Bowl.

  24. How does this make Packers fans feel? These two poking fun at this situation at their expense?

  25. No one plays forever,it’s a job everyone can be replaced…just ask your boss!

  26. …maybe they signed with the Bulls. Everything is a guess. My best guess would be that a Rodgers trade is being finalized.

  27. Denver – Aaron Rogers, Devante Adams
    Packers – Courtlan Sutton, Dremont Jones, Teddy Bridgewater, 21-RD1, 22-RD1, 21-RD2, 22-RD2, 22-RD3

    Rodgers acts as though he has Tom Brady’s resume.
    ———————–

    If it weren’t for poor management the last 10 years he would. He’s by far the best QB to ever play the game.

  29. Even though it’s likely both will be back for one more year, this couldn’t be much more entertaining to those of us watching all this from out west.

  30. Here’s a thought…
    Rodgers is good.
    But he’s not even close to the Michael Jordan of football.
    His ego is out of control.
    Aaron loves himself some him.

  31. There’s more Jordan in “Jordan Love” than there is in “Aaron Rodgers” and that is a fact.

  32. Im sure somewhere Jordan is saying…..”and i took that personally”

  33. No way to sugar coat it…the Packers front office wonks have been an abject failure at developing a trusted relationship with Rodgers through the years. This wreckage is on them.

    I STILL cannot believe they traded UP into the first round to pick Love without talking it over with their still playing HoF QB. Even that pales in comparison to last year’s NFC-CG, not putting the game in Rodgers hands on 4th down. That’s like your boss handing over your work to the intern to present to critical stakeholders in pursuit of a big sales win. Complete and total lack of respect for their HoF QB.

    Who wants to play for Green Bay management? Nobody.

  34. Attention-seeking much, Aaron? He must be salivating for the day he retires and then comes out. The adoration!!!

  35. Aaron, Davante, you aren’t twelve year olds. You are grown A$$ millionaires. Donald Driver was just thankful he wasn’t living in a car anymore. If it’s business with you, then say it. Stop jerking around people who make $15 an hour and wonder if they should splurge on an $8 pack of bacon. We love the Green Bay Packers, not 12 year olds throwing a tantrum because they can’t buy a Maseratti, even though they haven’t won a Super Bowl for ages.

    No, that will be all on Rodgers. Having a fit because your team drafted a QB is just childish.

  37. If it weren’t for poor management the last 10 years he would. He’s by far the best QB to ever play the game.

    Please!!! He’s not even the “best” to play for the Packers

    The “best “ ever wouldn’t lose an nfc championship vs the Seahawks when his D gets him FIVE turnovers!!!

    Constantly making excuses for this weak between the ears drama queen

  38. What do you expect from a franchise where your starting QB and WR are most likely the 2 richest people in the ENTIRE city? It’s no surprise Favre and now Rodgers (and now Adams) start acting like primadonnas when they look around, recognize there’s no Daddy Warbucks owner, and they’re Mr. Big in town. There’s no other NFL city where this dynamic would happen. Expect this to happen again, and again, for as long as Green Bay Packers are a sports franchise.

    Also, pretty lame when the Milwaukee Bucks are the toast of the town/state. No one cares about a weak-minded QB and overrated WR making vague social media posts.

  39. Rodgers is way worse than Favre at the end. Favre wasn’t trying to take other players with him to hurt the packers team. And this whole “Last Dance” crap is so bad. No Jordan or Pippen here or even that the packers with Rodgers is like the Bulls with Jordan. Swing and a huge miss.

  40. Just another power struggle between management and players. Last Dance, hope PAC gets another Super Bowl.
