Aaron Rodgers is in his 18th season with the Green Bay Packers and his 15th as the starting quarterback. According to Mark Schlereth, the Packers have already made their decision and will move on from the future Hall of Fame quarterback. Schlereth says that Jordan Love will be the Packers starting quarterback going forward. He made these comments while appearing on Colin Cowherd’s The Herd.
Wow, Mark Schlereth says Packers have already made a decision and Jordan Love will be their QB next season, not Aaron Rodgers 👀👀 @markschlereth @TheHerd @BruceIronsNFL @IKE_Packers @KenIngalls pic.twitter.com/89IFyA11a2

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have been down this road before. Rumors of their divorce have swirled ever since Jordan Love was drafted in 2020.
Is There Any Merit to Schlereth’s Comments?
To be short: no, there is not. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has made it very clear that he will not make a decision until after next season. Furthermore, the Packers have committed to Rodgers for the next two seasons beyond the 2022 campaign.
Furthermore, Mark Schlereth has been wrong about every Aaron Rodgers comment or prediction he has made. When Rodgers and the Packers were going through their very public feud in 2021, Schlereth stated that he was convinced Rodgers would get traded to the Denver Broncos.
The Aaron Rodgers/Nathaniel Hackett Conspiracy
Yesterday, it was reported that the Denver Broncos had parted ways with former Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator, Nathaniel Hackett. The Broncos were just 4-11 under Hackett’s leadership, a tenure rife with fighting amongst teammates and ridiculous behavior from Russell Wilson.
There is no small minority of people that believe that the Denver Broncos only hired Hackett because they believed that they were going to swing a trade for the Packers quarterback. However, the Aaron Rodgers contract locked him into Green Bay for three more seasons. The failure of Hackett to succeed in Denver, though, has many people posting about the conspiracy as to why he was hired by Denver in the first place:
Broncos can deny it, but sure seemed like Hackett was hired to lure Aaron Rodgers.
It was all downhill after not getting him and pivoting to Wilson.
And here we are.
