Aaron Rodgers has made it clear this offseason that he is not seeking a Green Bay Packers contract extension. If that was all he wanted, the star quarterback would probably have showed up at work long ago. What Rodgers really wants, according to a report, is a contract reduction.

Rodgers has three years left with the four-year $134 million extension he signed with Green Bay in 2018. Obviously he wants the Packers to trade him, but FanSided’s Matt Lombardo has been told by multiple sources that Rodgers will at least get out of his contract sooner if that isn’t going to happen.

An NFC manager told Lombardo that Rodgers wants to restructure his deal in a way that allows him to do what Tom Brady did at the end of his career.

“He wants to make some sort of deal,” the director said. “But he wants years from his deal so he can pull a Tom Brady and be the next guy to go somewhere else to win a championship.”

The odds of Rodgers smoothing things over with Green Bay’s copper seem slim. There is also very little chance of him sitting out the entire 2021 season, which is why an agreement between the two sides to spend another year together makes the most sense.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter recently predicted that the Packers will have to restructure Rodgers’ contract in such a way that he will not stay with the team in 2022. That kind of arrangement could work for all parties, as it would allow Green Bay to host another Super Bowl. with Rodgers before turning the business over to Jordan Love.

The Packers may be able to convince Rodgers to stay for another season, but they probably will unless something drastic changes. Even his soon-to-be mother-in-law hinted this week that the issues between Rodgers and the team have not been resolved.
