Despite the franchise offering him a bumper two-year contract extension as per NFL insider Adam Schefter, Aaron Rodgers is still not convinced about returning to play for the Packers again in 2021.

So with the Packers franchise failing to change Rodgers’ mind, perhaps some convincing from the world’s fastest man might do the trick.

While talking to Sports Illustrated, Bolt was asked about the current situation surrounding his Rodgers and the Packers. And it seems like the Jamaican sprinter would do anything to get the star QB back to Green Bay.

“I would beg Aaron Rodgers to stay,” Bolt said. “Last year, we were very close, so close. This year, after the draft, we got a lot of good players and a lot of guys that stayed, you know what I mean? Davante Adams and everybody.”

And in an impassioned plea, Bolt begged the 2020 NFL MVP to stick around with his favorite NFL franchise. “I need Aaron Rodgers to stay. Please stay! We need you!”

And while the Packers could still refuse to trade him, the quarterback could well sit out the entirety of the 2021 NFL campaign to force a move through next season.
