On Friday, July 23, various sports books became convinced Aaron Rodgers was serious about retiring. Over that weekend, Rodgers and the Packers reached “mutually agreed upon terms” to pave the way for the quarterback’s return.
So how close was Rodgers to retiring?
“I mean, I felt going into the weekend before camp that I was 50/50,” Rodgers recently told Dan Le Batard & Friends podcast, via Jordan Dajani of CBS Sports.
Rodgers returns to Green Bay for at least one more season after winning MVP honors last season, which perhaps changed the Packers’ transition plan at quarterback.
