"The Packers are going to retain Aaron Rodgers for the 2022 season," he wrote. "It makes no sense for either party to move on. The Packers have won 39 games in the last three seasons, and Rodgers is a back-to-back MVP winner. The Packers are doing to win the division, and with some adjustments to the roster, they should be better.
