This may not be what going “all-in” looks like to some, but it’s clear — and has been for a while — that the Green Bay Packers are all-in on the 2021 season. Despite facing a shrunken salary cap this offseason, for the most part, the Packers were able to keep the 2020 roster together here in 2021. The only major loss in free agency was Corey Linsley–otherwise, just about everyone else is returning.
Retirement has been a trending topic within the Green Bay Packers‘ organization, primarily because of Aaron Rodgers. This time, a Packers offensive lineman made headlines because of it. Green Bay offensive lineman Simon Stepaniak has decided to retire, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky. The Packers took a chance on Stepaniak...
OK, this post isnt really about the 2021 season, its about the now imminent demise of the Green Bay Packers being perennial favorites in the NFC North. I am old enough to remember the Packers as also-rans. Regular basement dwellers we could always count on for a couple of W’s. Then Atlanta stupidly traded Brett Favre to GB and it took all of one or two games to know that the Packers had found a gem. I had to wait a long time for the Favre era to end, only to step into the almost as talented Rodgers era. The Packers were very fortunate to find back to back franchise QBs. Some would call it skill, which played a part, but let’s be honest, the Packers didn’t move up to number 1 to get AR, and most didn’t have him falling as far as he did, so fortune definitely played a part in that pick. Favre’s lack of maturity paved his way out of Atlanta as well. Count that as luck too.
Few, if any, NFL teams have had as tumultuous of an offseason as the Green Bay Packers. Yet with training camp now underway, the Packers managed to hold together a roster that should have the upside to contend for the Super Bowl this coming season. Aaron Rodgers is back after a stand-off with the front office, and Green Bay will be the strong favorite to win the NFC East.
Aaron Rodgers is committed to the Green Bay Packers this upcoming season. He’s probably willing to play in Green Bay in 2022, as well. Former Packers great LeRoy Butler believes that’ll then prove to be the end of the Rodgers-Packers relationship. Butler joined TMZ Sports in an interview on Saturday....

Specifically, Cobb and the Packers converted $4.075M of the player’s $5.25M salary into a signing bonus. The team also added a 2023 void year to the contract, thus dropping Cobb’s 2021 cap hit to $2.68M. While this move will provide the organization with some much-needed breathing room this season, it will also exasperate the team’s future cap concerns.
With Corey Linsley in Los Angeles, as the Green Bay Packers’ second-round pick, it was assumed by many that Josh Myers was going to be the team’s starting center. And while that was likely Green Bay’s plan, the rookie would still have to prove himself on the field first before being handed the starting job.
It was a smart move on Green Bay’s part. Rodgers openly admitted he wanted to reunite with Cobb and the Packers granted his wish. “Obviously without Aaron, I don’t think we would probably be pursuing that, but he’s still a really good player,” said GM Brian Gutekunst on Thursday, via the Associated Press. “Seeing him last night just kind of reminded me of what kind of impact he’ll have in our locker room for our football team. This is a very important thing for Aaron, and that’s why we did it.”
