Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is likely to return to the NFL next season, where he may have a different contract. Yesterday, appearing on the Pat McAfee Show, Aaron Rodgers said that if he were to return this season or possibly be traded, some things would have to shift, including his contract.

He said:

"Definitely things would have to shift.... There would have to be some adjustments for sure."

Today on Undisputed, analysts/hosts Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless discussed Rodgers' recent comments about him possibly restructuring his contract for a return.

According to them, Rodgers should have done this last season, and maybe it could have kept Davante Adams in Green Bay and given them more flexibility with their cap space. Both of them think that Rodgers is still holding the team, hostage.

Sharpe said:

"How about you a day late, dollar short, that's what you shoulda did last year when you could have possibly kept Davante."

Bayless said:

"He [Rodgers] said, 'I'd love to finish there, being Green Bay, I would, I might have finished there already, who knows.' So he's still. dangling the retirement, he's still holding everyone hostage."
Aaron Rodgers says he is open to restructuring his contract if he plays in 2023: “He came across as if he looked in the mirror and decided that he should accept some of the fault for what’s not happening in Green Bay.” — @RealSkipBayless https://t.co/xhH2A30BVa

There's a growing sense that Aaron Rodgers could be traded to an AFC team this season

Yesterday, ESPN reporter Adam Schefter broke the news that if Aaron Rodgers is traded this off-season, he will be traded to an AFC team.

The Packers wouldn't want to face Rodgers at all and wouldn't be open to trading him for an inner-conference team. The two teams that could be possibilities for Rodgers are the New York Jets and the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Jets are prepared to move on from third-year quarterback Zach Wilson, as he's had a horrendous first two seasons in the NFL. Their GM, Woody Johnson, said he would be open to trading multiple first-round picks for Rodgers, which is the Packers' starting price.

The #Packers will want at least two 1st round picks in a trade for QB Aaron Rodgers, Peter King shares in his column.King adds that #Jets owner Woody Johnson would happily pay that price. The question remains if Rodgers even wants to play for NY. https://t.co/BO7UHPpOGM

The Raiders are preparing to trade quarterback Derek Carr this off-season. They are already rumored to be targeting Tom Brady this off-season and if Aaron Rodgers is available, they could go after him as well.

Rodgers could also choose to walk away from the game and retire, but it doesn't seem like that will happen, although he has hinted at it.
