Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers reiterated recently that he remains uncertain about his future with the franchise. 'So far, (the Packers have) definitely been my team,' Rodgers told ESPN in a video interview posted Friday, April 2. 'I said last year I didn't know if that was actually possible to be able to finish (my career with Green Bay). I still feel like that's kind of where we're at. I don't that a lot of that is in my hands, but ... we'll kind of see as we go. Like I said last year, these things are just out of my control. The team has obviously the power to do what they want. My job is just to play as well as I can. I think there may have been ideas about what certain things meant last year; I just focus on my play.'
Huddle Up: At age 36, Rodgers enjoyed a dazzling rebound season in 2020, tossing a career-high 48 TD passes, finishing second among QBs in total fantasy points and garnering his third career MVP award. Some regression can be expected so don't overpay in fantasy drafts, but Rodgers does remain a solid mid-to-lower-end QB1.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is talking with the team about possibly restructuring his contract in order to create some salary cap space with the team.
Huddle Up: Rodgers will be the starting quarterback for at least one more season and will have most of his pass catchers back next season. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: Rodgers has thrown for at least 4,000 in four of the last five seasons and threw a career-high 48 touchdowns in 2021. He will have most of his pass catchers back next season and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: After a couple of years of modest production by his standards, Rodgers rebounded to lead the NFL with a career-high 48 touchdown passes. He left no doubt that he still deserves to be considered an every-week fantasy starter heading into 2021.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is going to be with the Packers 'for a long time,' according to head coach Matt LaFleur. 'Is that a trick question? Absolutely,' LaFleur said. 'There's no doubt about it. You're talking about the guy who's going to win the MVP of the league. We're not in this position without him.'
Huddle Up: The Packers are unlikely to move Rodgers this offseason, and he'll be among the top-five options at the position in fantasy next year.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is almost certain to remain with the team in 2021, according to comments made by team president and chief executive officer Mark Murphy on Tuesday, Jan. 26.
'I'll say this: There's no way in heck that Aaron is not going to be on the Packers. I mean, he is going to be the MVP of the league, might have had his best year ever. He's our unquestioned leader and, you know, we're not idiots,' Murphy told WNFL Radio.
Huddle Up: Rodgers' comments during a postgame presser about his future (or lack thereof) following Green Bay's loss in the NFC Championship set off a firestorm of speculation, but there isn't much reason to believe either side wants a trade to happen. First-round pick Jordan Love is nowhere near ready to take over as the starter yet by all accounts, the Packers are one of the best teams in the league and Rodgers' contract runs through the end of the 2023 season.
