Is Aaron Rodgers' Suamico house for sale?
SUAMICO – Aaron Rodgers eluded everyone's grasp once again.
A blogger created a scrum of excitement reporting that Rodgers' Suamico house is for sale, but as many pass rushers have learned, the elusive Packers quarterback is always more of a "was" than an "is".
The house is not – or perhaps is no longer – for sale.
Dan Posey with Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group, identified as the agent in the real estate listing on the company's website, said the house on Crown Point Boulevard is occupied and not on the market. Posey said he signed a confidentially agreement with a client that prevents him from saying any more about the property, other than that media reports about it being for sale are not accurate.
Rodgers bought the four-bedroom, 4,000-square foot house near Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve in July 2005 for $442,500, according to Brown County real estate records. He subsequently transferred ownership to RFI Holding LLC, which appears to be a Rodgers holding company. No subsequent sale was filed with the county, but Wisconsin doesn't have a deadline for recording transactions with the Register of Deeds.
And before anyone gets too worked up, the sale is not an indication Rodgers is clearing the decks to leave Green Bay. He has three years left on his contract with the Packers and the future Hall of Fame quarterback will not sneak away from Lambeau Field in the dead of night.
In that regard, he's still an "is".
