Sportsbooks have reportedly received a major “tip” in the situation with Green Bay Packers superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Rodgers has yet to report to Green Bay this offseason. The MVP quarterback did not show up for voluntary OTAs or mandatory minicamp. It’s unclear when – or if – he’ll report to training camp later this month.
The Super Bowl-winning quarterback has requested a trade out of Green Bay. It’s unclear if the Packers will grant him that request. So, many have speculated that Rodgers could attempt to force their hand by retiring.
At least one sportsbook appears to have received a tip that Rodgers will do just that.
A Las Vegas sportsbook has reportedly received a major tip indicating that Rodgers will retire at some point next week.
Is Aaron Rodgers really retiring? How a Vegas sportsbook getting a tip from a source “that has been right before” led to Packers odds and totals getting knocked off most boards on Friday https://t.co/d667LtGSHY

From Action Network:
Some sportsbooks have taken down any betting odds related to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers due to rumors and information about his possible retirement.
DraftKings and PointsBet pulled NFC North odds, Packers win totals and more, but the first sportsbook to remove them was the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas.
The SuperBook is responsible for some of the markets closing. Sources tell The Action Network’s Darren Rovell that oddsmakers inside the SuperBook were told information about Rodgers possibly retiring by an informant who has been right about other news before. The book played it safe by taking the odds down.
The retirement rumors have been swirling for a couple of months, though most did not expect Rodgers to actually go this route.
It remains to be seen if he will indeed pull the retirement card, though it shouldn’t shock anyone if it happens.
Green Bay is set to open training camp later this month.
