Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams "would love to team up with the Denver Broncos," per NFL Insider Jordan Schultz. “Sources tell me that, yes, the relationship between between Rodgers and the Packers is severed… I’m also told that Adams, given his friendship with Rodgers, has grown increasingly frustrated with the Packers’ mistreatment of one of his best friends,” Schultz said.
Rodgers was frustrated with the Packers after the 2020 season but ultimately decided to return for 2021. The Packers suffered a disappointing 13-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers and Rodgers' future in Green Bay is again uncertain.
Star wide receiver Adams is set to be a restricted free agent and he could be heading where Rodgers ends up.
Rodgers believes he can still play at a high level
"I'm still super competitive, still know I can play at a high level, so it's going to be a tough decision," Rodgers said during a 17-minute session with reporters after the game.
"I have a lot of things to weigh in the coming weeks. But man, just so much gratitude for this city and this organization and such a long, long career here that I'm proud of and really thankful for all the men and women that work here, the men I've gotten to cross paths with, coaches and players over the years."
After the game, Packers coach Matt LeFleur made it clear the Packers want Rodgers back. "Certainly we want him back here," LaFleur said. "I think we'd be crazy not to want him back here. He's going to be the two-time MVP.
This guy does so much for our football team, not only what you guys see on Sunday's or every game day, but what he does in that locker room, how he leads. I know what he puts into this thing, and certainly I'm extremely disappointed in that we couldn't get over the hump for not only him, but for everybody in that locker room."
Rodgers admitted he didn't play well against the 49ers. "I didn't have a great night tonight," said Rodgers, who was 20-of-29 for 286 yards and was sacked a season-high five times. "They did a good job of kind of getting me off the spot, and a better job of taking away some of the quick game we got going last time we played them.
I missed a couple reads. I probably should have taken a couple hole-shot chances a couple times. Obviously, if I hit Allen [Lazard] on that deep in on the last drive, that probably gets us out to about midfield and then we're a couple first downs away from being in field-goal range.
"So definitely disappointed by some of the decisions I had tonight. I definitely take my fair share of blame tonight."
