i believe Rodgers when he says he was leaning heavily towards retirement before his darkness retreat. I think he knew his time in Green Bay was up.There's no way he ever had a toe in the retirement pool. The dark room had nothing to do with it. The $60 million had everything to do with it.
Just like there's no way that he's walking next year and leaving $50 million on the table to play 17 football games. There was never any doubt about him playing. It's all bullshit. And in the end the trade compensation shows that the Jets fully know there's no way he's retiring next year. Everyone has been posturing.
His nonsense story about disrespect is a coverup for saying “the darkness told me leaving 60 million on the table was dumb.”
His motivation for playing with the Jets is BS. He’s there to cash a check, not go on some world revenge tour.
