For Green Bay Packers fans, this offseason was nothing short of a rollercoaster. Ever since news of Aaron Rodgers wanting to leave the franchise first broke out, the fanbase was on a knife-edge.
With uncertainty growing as each day passed more trouble besieged the Packers as star wideout Davante Adams called off contract extension talks. But luckily for the Packers, both Rodgers and Adams are returning for 2021.

As soon as word got out that Aaron Rodgers was returning to Green Bay, albeit for perhaps one last season, Adams too said he’d be willing to have a word about his new contract.
With Rodger’s future still unclear, what impact it would have on the team and the quarterback himself. But the QB allayed those fears by providing some reassuring words for Packers fans.
Aaron Rodgers glad to be back at Green Bay
Talking to former NFL player James Jones, Aaron Rodgers was asked about his feelings about returning to Green Bay. And what the quarterback had to say will definitely make Packers fans happy.
“It’s the best feeling. It was a little strange day one, just because I was gone for the entire offseason, contemplating my own future. The possibility of playing somewhere else as well. But when I’m back here, I’m a 100% all in,” said Rodgers during a segment of NFL Total Access.
Rodgers further said that his love for the sport and his teammates brought him back on the field. And also all the fun that comes along with practicing.
“You know, me, you know what I’m all about. I love my teammates, love competing and I do love practice. I love to go out and give it to the young corner when I can. And get after these guys talk a little smack,” said Rodgers with a smile on his face.
For Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers to mend ways, a lot of work needs to be done. A patch job at best, the current agreement between the two parties will see the QB remain till the end of next season.
But regardless of what happens, Packers fans can find solace in knowing that the 2020 NFL MVP will once again be leading their offense as they look to mount a charge for a Super Bowl.
