Report: Packers agree to void ’23 from Aaron Rodgers’ deal

Aaron Rodgers signed a reworked contract with the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, ESPN reported, with the Packers voiding the 2023 season from the deal.

The report said that the Packers also removed certain forfeiture provisions from the contract that would have allowed the team to try to recoup portions of Rodgers’ signing bonus.

Green Bay offered concessions to Rodgers to appease the reigning MVP quarterback and persuade him to report to the team for training camp. Over the offseason, Rodgers made clear he was unhappy with how the franchise had gone about its business and hadn’t given him a larger say in matters relating to the team.

Of those concessions, it appears one was a trade with the Houston Texans to acquire former Packers receiver Randall Cobb, one of Rodgers’ old favorite targets.

“Obviously without Aaron (Rodgers), I don’t think we would be pursuing that,” Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said Thursday. “Randall is still a really good player. … This was a very important thing for Aaron, and that’s why we did it.”

Now Rodgers is not locked into staying Green Bay as long. It was previously reported that the Packers were prepared to agree with Rodgers to review his situation at the end of the 2021 season.
