The Facts: The Packers relationship with Rodgers has gotten so ugly that the reigning NFL MVP has apparently now decided that he would rather retire than play in Green Bay. According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, Rodgers is seriously considering retirement and it's something that could happen "unless the situation [in Green Bay] is repaired to his liking." If he does retire, hosting "Jeopardy" could be a post-retirement option for Rodgers.
Diehards Line: The only piece of good news here for the Packers is that based on Rapoport's phrasing, there may be a way for the Packers to salvage their relationship with their star QB. If the situation can be "repaired to his liking," that at least leaves the door open for the Packers to fix things. Also working in their favor, if Rodgers retires (to host Jeopardy or just retire), he would have to repay the team $11.5 million this year and $11.5 million if he remains retired next year -- all from his signing bonus.
