Aaron Rodgers dropped a mysterious IG post while you were sleeping

Aaron Rodgers’ future is uncertain, but the award-winning midfielder has said he will not allow his situation to continue throughout the holiday period as he did last year.

And while that may still be the case, Rodgers is wasting quite a bit of time being dramatic over social media:

Is this an advertisement? NB? Introduction to something more? Cry for help? A call to attention? What does it all mean?

It could be something. But it could be nothing major. no one knows. And that’s probably how Rodgers likes it.

What we do know is that Rodgers very late on Monday posted an Instagram post with 10 photos and an accompanying caption “I’m not reading all of that…I’m glad for you/Sorry about what happened.” But when I finally gave in and read that, I was left feeling conflicted. This may be as simple as Rodgers being grateful to those who were there for him in 2021, but Rodgers has dropped the benefit of the doubt regarding expectations that he plays it squarely with his statements.

Looking at the final picture of his wide receivers missing, it’s very clear that he wants people to think he’s talking about leaving… but he knows it, and he can just trolling. Wonderful young man.

All of this comes against the backdrop of Rodgers’ uncertain future.

The Green Bay front office publicly expressed a desire to keep Rodgers in town. And what it’s worth, Rodgers seemed like someone leaning toward a comeback for another season with the Packers. But trade rumors have been swirling around Rodgers since the 2021 NFL Draft. One critic has found out what Rodgers’ trade from Green Bay to go into this season might look like. However, the trade outside of Bakerland is not a foregone conclusion. Not when the Packers are ready to go bankrupt to keep the Rodgers. It will definitely be a nightmare for the years to come. But the juice could be worth the squeeze if the alternative is Jordan’s love.

At the end of the day, Rodgers’ IG post was the kind one tends to push and it was a farewell message. At least, that’s what we’re used to seeing (see: Brady, Tom) when a guy gets stuck. And if anyone else, I think this letter was a precursor to the retirement announcement, or some other major step. But, again, Rodgers knows we all think that, and he’s not above just messing with people for the fun of it.
