Report: Aaron Rodgers return to Packers hinges on a trade for Randall Cobb

Aaron Rodgers apparently is trying to pull a Tom Brady. Sort of.

Trey Wingo reports (or at least he says he’s “hearing”) that the return of Aaron Rodgers to the Packers is “hinging on trading for former teammate Randall Cobb.” Says Wingo, “If Cobb is in Green Bay it looks like Rodgers will be too.”

On one level, it feels like a test. Does Aaron Rodgers have the juice to get the Packers to trade for a former teammate? On the other level, it’s Randall Cobb. All due respect, but Randall Cobb isn’t Gronk or Antonio Brown. As Josh Alper pointed out, Rodgers hinging his return on the return of Randall Cobb (who currently plays for the Texans) makes about as much sense as Rodgers demanding a Cobb salad for lunch every day.

Either way that’s what Wingo is reporting. Or hearing. Or whatever.

  1. “demanding a Cobb salad for lunch everyday” Thank you for that… That made my day.

  2. It was never agreed Rodgers had that input on personnel decisions. But he’s unhappy because he can’t have what he wants?? smh

  3. If this is true, the Texans would essentially be trading Randall Cobb and Aaron Rodgers to the Packers. Didn’t I hear the going rate for Rodgers is three first-round picks? Throw in Cobb and it’s two first-round picks.

  4. With Cobb’s contract and how Cobb played last season, the Texans would simply hand him over.

  5. Cobb may not be Brown or Gronk, but he’d easily be their 3rd best, maybe 2nd best, behind Adams.
    He may be a jerk, but it’s hard to argue with his wanting another reliable receiver.

  6. Love A-Rod, he’s a rare talent and doesn’t give AF.

  7. I’m sure some of the higher-ups that have been in the Packers management for years knew Rodgers was capable this kind of diva behavior and that’s the real reason they drafted Love! They weren’t going to go through the Farve drama again.

    And why did Rodgers numbers go up so much after they drafted Love and not before?

    Because he’d gotten to comfortable and was slacking, that happens when players don’t have anyone to push them!

  8. I think it’s safe to say that Rodgers has surpassed Alex Rodriguesz as the biggest dbag ARod in sports? This is coming from a Packers fan

  9. I see alot of fake Packer fans taking shots at Rodgers i say get outta here go root for
    da Bears you pathetic losers !
