Rodgers inks new deal with Packers

July 27, 2021

The biggest on-the-field storyline of the offseason has come to an end.

The marriage between quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers will last at least one more season.

His deal reportedly offers him the ability to “opt-out” of his deal after each of the next two seasons, something similar to what Tom Brady had in his final years in New England.

Rodgers is coming off an MVP season, throwing for 4,299 yards, 48 scores, and five interceptions.

Rodgers’ return to Green Bay has a major impact on the fantasy football landscape.

Davante Adams

The seventh-year wideout joined Rodgers’ “Last Dance” Instagram campaign over the weekend posting a picture in homage to the ESPN documentary.

Adams is in the final year of his deal with the Packers. He had a career year with 115 catches for 1,374 yards and a league-high 18 touchdowns in 2020.

Adams is now willing to negotiate a deal with Rodgers back, but, one would assume if a deal isn’t done in the offseason, he will wait and see what Rodgers does next offseason.

Adams, who has been linked to Rodgers his entire career will certainly rise back up draft boards with Rodgers back under center.

Robert Tonyan

The Dennis Rodman to Rodgers and Adams’ MJ and Pippen; the third-year tight end became Rodgers’ second-favorite target during the flurry of injuries to Packers’ weapons last year.

Tonyan caught 52 catches for 586 yards and 11 scores. Tonyan could easily find himself in the top 5 in fantasy point at tight end linked to Rodgers this season.

Aaron Jones

Jones got PAID at the beginning of the offseason and will now have the future Hall of Famer under center to draw people out of the box.

If Jordan Love would have started, Jones surely would have seen more people in the box. With Rodgers under center, Jones is sure to improve on his 63 targets he saw last year, especially with Jamaal Williams gone.

Randall Cobb

During all the Rodgers drama on Monday afternoon, Trey Wingo tweeted that one of the concessions of the contract was that Randall Cobb would return to Green Bay. Wingo knows nothing about the contract, but it is an interesting idea.

Cobb caught passes for over 5,000 yards and 41 touchdowns as a member of the Packers.
