Is Aaron Rodgers Looking for Revenge Against the Packers Should He Leave?

Following last Sunday’s NFC Title game loss at home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there’s been tons of questions about the future for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers himself said that his future in Green Bay is uncertain, and Monday one of his old teammates had some interesting comments about what could potentially happen if Rodgers moves on to play elsewhere.

That player is former Packer offensive lineman T.J. Lang, who said that Rogers wasn’t happy when the team drafted Jordan Love last offseason, and that he felt the team was just one piece away from truly winning the whole thing.

“I think he was quietly pissed when they took Jordan Love a year ago,” Lang said on WXYT’s “The Ticket” on Monday.

“The one thing I’ll say about Aaron Rodgers, pretty much the last 10 years of his career he’s wanted that team to just go all-in for one year. ‘Just give me some pieces, let’s just go all-in, let’s trade a future first if we have to get a couple guys. Let’s just go all-in and try to win this thing.’

“And then last year, he hinted at them doing that, ‘Hey, I’m excited, let’s see who they can bring in,’ and they bring in a quarterback. I think that was the ultimate slap to the face when you feel like you’re one piece away from winning the whole thing.”

“I think he’s gonna make them pay, man, I think he’s gonna want some sort of new deal where they guarantee a couple more years for him, security wise, being in Green Bay. I don’t think he wants to go anywhere, but I think he’s going to hold their feet to the fire and say, ‘Hey, if you’re going to keep me around, A) you’re going to pay me, and B) you’re going to bring in some players that I want to play with where we can take this next leap.”

The last two seasons the Packers have won 13 games each, but both seasons were unable to get to the Super Bowl.

Could it be time for a change for Rodgers and the Packers? Only time will tell for the 37-year-old quarterback, but if so it will be interesting if he lines up looking for revenge like another former Packers quarterback did some time ago who wore #4.
