Aaron Rodgers has plunged the entire NFL world into chaos. Last week, news broke confirming what many people had suspected – Rodgers wants out of Green Bay.

After yet another NFC championship game loss, Rodgers had made some cryptic remarks about leaving, before quickly backtracking.

However, it appears now his desire to leave is a lot more resolute. And a Tweet from Davante Adams suggests his teammates don’t believe he’ll stick around either.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams took to Twitter with a vague message. He said, “Gotta appreciate what u got while ya got it!”

Many fans speculated that Adams was referring to the Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers situation. But what gave people further validation that Rodgers wants to leave was that he went to Twitter and actually liked the Tweet.

Now, this could just be a case of Rodgers liking something on his timeline by his teammate. Furthermore, Adams could just be sharing a valuable life lesson. However, to write both occurrences off as coincidences may be too convenient.

The timing of the tweet and Rodgers liking it suggests that it is no coincidence. And if that is the case, then clearly Adams is lamenting the fact that he has already played his last game with Aaron Rodgers.

Some outlets have reported that Rodgers leaving is not set in stone. In fact, he does want one thing changed in the franchise if he is to consider a return – the dismissal of Packers’ GM Brian Gutekunst.

Gutekunst was responsible for several player transactions over the last few years, including bringing Jordan Love in through the draft last year to be the long-term replacement for Rodgers.

However, Rodgers responded to that decision by having one of the best years of his career and winning his 3rd NFL MVP title. Perhaps Rodgers feels that this gives him a little more leverage.
