A former Green Bay Packers starter from the 2022 season appears to be done living in Green Bay or the greater Wisconsin area for the foreseeable future after selling their home recently. Green Bay will likely see a lot of property turnover this offseason as several veteran players have joined new teams. Several new Packers free agent signings and rookies will help drive up demand for new housing in Green Bay. One home is recently off the market.
A former Green Bay Packers starter sells his house
According to Richard Ryman with the Green Bay Press-Gazette, former kick and punt returner Amari Rodgers sold his home on May 12. Rodgers received a tidy profit on the sale as the house went for $438,000:
“The three-bedroom, two-bath house at 2054 Buckthorn Trail on Green Bay’s west side was initially listed for $480,000 in December 2022. The 1,753-square foot house was built in 2021. It includes a gas fireplace, gourmet kitchen, patio, home security system and three-car garage on a .28-acre lot.
Rodgers bought the house for $360,000 on July 2021, according to Brown County land records.”
The Packers cut Rodgers after their Week 10 win against the Dallas Cowboys after Rodgers fumbled a punt return. It was the eighth fumble of his career. The Packers drafted Rodgers in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
The 23-year-old wide receiver was signed by the Houston Texans last season. Amari Rodgers had considerably more success catching balls from quarterback Davis Mills in Houston than when Aaron Rodgers tossed them his way in Green Bay.
The Packers were better for cutting Amari on special teams. Cornerback Keisean Nixon excelled when replacing Amari as a returner.
