“This game is about relationships” Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wants five veteran teammates following retirement decision

Aaron Rodgers has been in the NFL for years, and he wanted to retire from the Packers team this year. That said, the player made bold claims throughout the season, indicating that he would take his side to the Super Bowl and win it. The packers could not even make it to the playoffs. 

After losing their final game against the Lions, haters of Rodgers, along with Lion fans, did not condemn themselves for trolling the veteran player. Even though many of his haters pointed out that it was the bashing that led Rodgers to think about retirement, Rodgers, even before playing the match, said that he might retire after this season. 

However, “The Pat McAfee Show” on Tuesday invited the veteran player to chat about his future. Aaron Rodgers shockingly said in the interview that if the Packers bring back five of his mates, he might want to reconsider his decision. 

What did Aaron Rodgers say in the show?

If the Packers want to go younger next season, Rodgers said “he doesn’t want to be part of a rebuild” and is willing to play elsewhere. However, if the team listens to him and brink back five other veteran players he will rejoin the team. Regarding his return, Aaron said, 

“This game is about relationships. It’s about the guys you rely on, even if they don’t show up huge in the stat book. A guy like Marcedes Lewis, he’s an important cog in the wheel of the locker room and the momentum of the team. That’s a guy I want to finish my career with, you know? If I’m playing, I want that guy next to me.”

“I want the Randall Cobbs of the world if he wants to keep playing, in my locker room. Guys you can win with. Allen Lazard, Bobby Tonyan, Dave Bakhtiari. There’s a lot of interesting names that we’ll see their desire to re-sign these certain guys who are glue guys in the locker room that will be interesting conversations to be had.”

If the Packers want Rodgers to play they seriously need to rebuild their team. Making a team full of veteran players is out of the blue for the Packers. They would rather create a new team full of youngsters who can bring victories to the team. However, with the ever-rising request from the fans, the Packers might do the unthinkable.

Will the Packers listen to the legendary Rodgers? Only time will tell. Till then stay tuned.
