Charles Woodson: Aaron Rodgers and Packers could be headed for a ‘nasty’ ending

Aaron Rodgers proceeds to say his foreseeable future is a “lovely thriller” though the Eco-friendly Bay Packers seemingly refuse to set the items with each other to help their foreseeable future Corridor of Fame quarterback seize his next Super Bowl title. Rodgers continues to be the Packers quarterback, but he and the Eco-friendly Bay front workplace are evidently on a collision system. 

When it is really time for Rodgers and the Packers to butt heads, it could get unsightly. Corridor of Fame defensive back again Charles Woodson, who performed with Rodgers for 7 a long time in Eco-friendly Bay, instructed CBS Sports Radio’s Zach Gelb items are not probably to get improved. 

“It’s a single of people cases wherever there’s all this chat swirling all around him and Eco-friendly Bay, and it could be a single of people cases wherever it receives unpleasant,” Woodson explained on The Zach Gelb Show Tuesday. “I absolutely hope that will not transpire, but wherever there’s smoke, there’s fireplace. This could be a scenario wherever — just before you know it — another person helps make some variety of participate in or supply and Eco-friendly Bay won’t be able to refuse. They’ll say ‘hey, we’ll go our separate strategies and he wants to be someplace else and we’ll move on with the foreseeable future of this team.'”

Rodgers is coming off a historic MVP year, as the Packers had the ideal file in the NFC with a thirteen-3 mark. Rodgers accomplished 70.7% of his passes for four,299 yards with 48 touchdowns to just 5 interceptions at the age of 37. A Initial Workforce All-Professional collection, Rodgers led the league in completion share, touchdown passes, touchdown share (nine.1), interception share (1.), and passer rating (121.five). He established a occupation high in both equally completion share and touchdown passes. 

Rodgers established a few NFL records in 2020, together with the most games with a passer rating over one hundred. (fourteen) and the most games with a passer rating over 120. (ten). He also had 9 games with a few-in addition touchdown passes and no interceptions in a year, also the most in NFL record. 

Still the Packers continue to failed to achieve the Super Bowl, falling to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Sport. Ultimately Rodgers will want to acquire his skills someplace he if Eco-friendly Bay will not give him the help he wants. Woodson will not see his former quarterback ending his occupation with the Packers. 

“If he plays effectively adequate, he could close his occupation someplace else. That’s not an anomaly,” Woodson explained. “In this league, you try out to participate in as numerous games as you can and gain as numerous games as you can. At some issue, a team is going to commence hunting in the direction of the foreseeable future. And I know the Packers are going to say ‘we’re going to acquire the ideal player accessible and this was not about hunting to the future’ — effectively it is. 

“I know A-Rod had to be wondering ‘bring me another person in below which is going to help me quickly — not another person that is going to sit driving me for the up coming two-a few years’ — or whatever it is. I think he finishes up ending his occupation in another put.”
