Since news had first broken out about his desire to leave the franchise on draft night, Rodgers had kept his cards close to himself. Not disclosing to anyone whether or not he had plans to put on the Packers uniform again, the QB let his actions do the talking by skipping his side’s OTAs and minicamp.

But now after months of drama which could be compared to that of a primetime soap opera, the quarterback is back. And in typical nonchalant fashion.

Some of the clauses of the apparent new deal struck between the two parties will see the 2023 year in Rodgers’ contract voided.
