It turns out he was just kidding.

Aaron Rodgers lobbied for Packers to bring back Randall Cobb. Rodgers is no stranger to lobbying for his favorite teammates. He was the reason the team pulled off a trade to bring Cobb back in July. After a tumultuous offseason, Rodgers agreed to return to the Packers for at least one more year. Part of Rodgers ' frustration was over not having input in personnel decisions. The Cobb trade was proof the team was letting Rodgers dictate some moves. A Matthews deal would be another sign the Packers are doing all they can to satisfy Rodgers in what could be his final year with the franchise.

– Is Aaron Rodgers , who got his wish with the Green Bay Packers ’ acquisition of his good friend Randall Cobb, now pushing for the team to bring back Clay Matthews ? Then again, maybe Rodgers and Co. were merely having some fun at everyone’s expense. As Davante Adams said of the “Last Dance” photos that he and Rodgers posted shortly before Rodgers returned to Green Bay, “It was just a post at the end of the day. If we want to mess with you guys every now and then, we have the right to do that.”

Turns out, Aaron Rodgers was just having some fun when he suggested on Instagram that the Green Bay Packers bring back linebacker Clay Matthews . "We messed around, had some dinner, had a couple drinks, started posting about Clay Matthews ," he told former teammate A.J. Hawk. "Friday night, I was with Dave (Bakhtiari) and his lovely fiance, Frankie, and the Cobbs. And we had a question about Clay that came up, because Clay just moved from California. So we got Clay on FaceTime. Those conversations turned into a social media post. There hasn't been , I don't think, a big push from

Some dismissed the social-media effort by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers , receiver Randall Cobb, and tackle David Bakhtiari to bring back linebacker Clay Matthews as a joke, or more specifically as a precursor to a one-day retirement contract. If there’s any tongue-in-cheek quality to the effort, it comes from the fact that Rodgers and the other Packers players know the front office won’t do it.

"There hasn’t been, I don’t think, a big push from any of us to sign him. We didn’t even talk ball. We were just BS-ing with him. Having a good conversation.
