    Yea, I'm okay okay bringing him back if it works. Depth never hurts and if he's willing to sign to the practice squad and be elevated as needed, that would be great.

    Also, this is a semi minor thing, but given the struggles of our special teams, having a guy who knows how to catch a punt isn't the worst thing.

    Just saw Ted Thompson passed away last night.

    Former Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson has died at the age of 68, according to multiple media reports.

    Very sad news. Just heard from two sources that former #Packers GM Ted Thompson died last night. He had just turned 68 on Jan. 17.

    RIP Ted.

    Potential insight into Rodgers hinting yesterday

    Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sending a message to the team with his post-game comments after Sunday’s loss to the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship. The message likely had multiple tentacles.

    Here’s one. Per a league source, Rodgers wants a new contract.

    Rodgers*should*want a new contract. He makes $33.5 million per year. He’s going to win the 2020 NFL MVP award. And he’s getting into the later years of his last deal, which will pay him far less in comparison to other quarterbacks.

    He’s due to make $22.35 million in 2021, $25.5 million in 2022, and $25.5 million in 2023.

    Rodgers currently ranks fifth in average new-money value, behind Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes ($45 million), Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson ($39 million), Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson ($35 million), and Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger ($34 million).

    Rodgers earns the same amount as Rams quarterback Jared Goff. Which means that Rodgers is grossly underpaid, Goff is grossly overpaid, or both. (Both.)

    Rodgers has a cap number in excess of $37 million for 2021, but a new contract easily could reduce it. A new deal also would reflect the team’s commitment to Rodgers over the next few years, based on the guaranteed payments and the cap consequences arising from cutting or trading him.

    If Rodgers officially asks for a new contract, he’ll definitely get one thing: Clarity as to where he stands. A new deal means renewed vows. No new deal means the clock will still tick toward a potential, if not inevitable, divorce.

    While Rodgers may want more (especially as it relates to efforts to improve the team), one thing he wants — and deserves — is a new contract.
    This could be an interesting twist, but seems to indicate what Rodgers was indicating yesterday. A new deal would help the cap. Obviously not a straight forward matter. Though it sounds like nothing was officially said, Rodgers has indicated he wants to retire a Packer.
