It’s been a tumultuous last 18 months for the Packers and franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Prior to Rodgers signing a four-year extension that will pay him over $150 million over the next three years, the future of Rodgers with the Packers was very much in doubt.

Rodgers and his relationship with the front office was fractured following the team’s first round selection of quarterback Jordan Love in the 2020 NFL draft. However, the strong play of Rodgers under the tutelage of new coach Matt LaFleur renewed the relationship between Rodgers and the Packers, and he is now expected to be tied to Green Bay for the remainder of his career.

Ranking the Best QB Moves of the 2022 NFL Offseason

  Ranking the Best QB Moves of the 2022 NFL Offseason Tom Brady unretiring, plus the trades of Russell Wilson, Matt Ryan and Baker Mayfield, and the extensions of Aaron Rodgers and Kyler Murray top our list. This could be the most important year for the QB position since 2017, when Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson were drafted, and '18, when Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson entered the NFL. Three tenured Pro Bowl players on at least their second NFL contract—Matt Ryan, Watson and Russell Wilson—will be starting the year in different uniforms. Two stalwarts long believed to have eyes for the open market—Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers—will be returning to their former clubs.

Rodgers opened up about his relationship with LaFleur and what his coach has brought to the franchise.

“That time we spent on Zoom, that was very meaningful to me,” Rodgers told MMQB‘s Albert Breer.

“To feel more like a collaborator was really important, and I did some things off the field as well to help with our relationship. And the more time we spent together, the better that our connection was. It was never bad. It just went from coach-player to friend.

“When you get to know somebody off the field, you know how they tick and what makes them go. You see everything from a different perspective. I know Matt’s a grinder. Matt’s a very creative person. He’s very driven, very hard on himself. I also know off the field how much he cares. And it’s because of how much he cares that he spends so much time in here, grinding through the week of game planning, film watching and preparation,” Rodgers added.

  20 Republicans, including Rep. Matt Gaetz, vote against anti-human trafficking bill Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., is himself under federal investigation for sex trafficking allegations involving a minor. He has denied all wrongdoing.The bill, called the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act of 2022, passed the House by a tally of 401-20. It first became law in 2000 and saw almost no opposition from either party at the time.

With LaFleur as his head coach, Rodgers has enjoyed some of the best statistical seasons of his career, and it’s not lost on him how much credit his coach deserves for his scheme and putting Rodgers in position to be successful.

“A lot of times you can tell by my initial celebration after a touchdown pass what kind of play it was,” Rodgers said.

“If he dials up something special and I throw a gimme touchdown, I’m always gonna give him the credit first, because he does that a lot. You’ll see me pointing over to him sometimes, and the majority of the time it’s because he just called a great freaking play and all I had to do literally was throw the ball to a wide-open guy. I have so much appreciation for that aspect he’s brought to this offense and this team,” Rodgers added.

With Rodgers back in tow, the Packers will certainly be one of the favorites to come out of the NFC this season, and the relationship between LaFleur and Rodgers is a big reason why Green Bay will be in the mix once again in 2022.
