Matt LaFleur on Aaron Rodgers: No updates, but we’ve been in communication

After the Packers were knocked out of the playoffs by the 49ers, quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t share a specific timeline for a decision about his plans for next season but said that he would be “respectful of the organization” needing to know where things stood heading into free agency.

There’s still more than a month before free agency gets underway and Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said from Thursday night’s NFL Honors that there’s nothing new to share regarding Rodgers’ status.

“There’s no updates but yeah, absolutely, we’re in communication,” LaFleur said. “Had a good few days after the season to sit down and really kinda try to digest the season. Just gonna let him go through his process, but, certainly, we’re all hopeful to have him back in Green Bay.”

LaFleur added that he’s also hopeful that Rodgers will retire as a Packer, but the third option would be for Rodgers to push for a move to another team. Retirement might have the longest odds for Rodgers, who is expected to be named MVP at the NFL Honors show on Thursday, but the wait for clarity on his plans will continue.

  1. Sometimes one wonders how a coach who has won 13 games – 3 years in a row cannot win coach of the year. But one has to admit that Vrabel did a great job especially after losing for most of the year one of the best running backs in the NFL. Great job Mike.

    On behalf of everyone else in the NFC North please go somewhere else. Signed a Vikings fan.


    In the words of William J. H. Boetcker: “You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.”

  3. Rodgers will stay with the Packers if he thinks there’s another MVP win in it for him. I think that’s the accolade that matters most to him, not the Superbowl.

  4. I don’t know what it is about this guy, but he’s not putting this team on his back in the postseason. For 2 straight years, he has had homefield advantage throughout the playoffs and an opportunity to engineer a game winning drive but has failed to do so. How many gamewinnibg postseason drives has he amassed as a proportion of his overall opportunities? He is like the Odell Beckham of QBs — a few memorable plays but no consistent success where it matters (except of course that one year).

  5. The LOVE era begins in 2022. AARON RODGERS will go to the 49ers and Tom Brady stays retired.
