What exactly does Aaron Rodgers want?
The Green Bay Packers superstar quarterback is rumored to have demanded a trade. However, reports have also indicated that Rodgers is seeking more money from the Packers.
Pro Football Talk shared the latter details on Sunday:
Per a league source, it’s believed by at least one team that has (or had) interest in Rodgers that he wants $90 million guaranteed over two years. That would get him to the Patricks Mahomes $45 million high-water mark. With the $45 million average applying to only the first two years and with all of it guaranteed, the structure necessary to pay that kind of money would as a practical matter tie Green Bay’s hands through 2022 and potentially into 2023.
Earlier this week, an anonymous NFL executive indicated what Rodgers is truly seeking.
“He wants to get some sort of deal done,” an anonymous NFC personnel executive told FanSided. “But, he wants years off his deal, so he can pull a Tom Brady.”

Brady, of course, played out his contract with the Patriots, leaving for the Buccaneers in free agency. That worked out pretty well for the legendary quarterback, as he won a Super Bowl in Year 1 in Tampa Bay.
Perhaps Rodgers will seek a similar outcome moving forward.
