With or without Aaron Rodgers, Packers don't have to rebuild
Neither Aaron Rodgers nor the Packers know if they will stay together for 2022 and beyond, but a full-scale rebuild in Green Bay doesn't seem likely either way.
At this time, neither Aaron Rodgers nor the top members of the Green Bay Packers organization know whether their marriage will extend into the 2022 season. The sting of Saturday's playoff defeat feels too fresh for all parties, and the process that will ultimately determine what happens with the presumptive four-time Most Valuable Player will take more than a few days to unfold. Until further notice, player and team remain in a holding pattern.
But regardless of whether Rodgers returns for an 18th season in Green Bay, the Packers do not appear headed for the rebuild that some predict.
"I'm confident that we'll all work together to try to get as many guys back as humanly possible," LaFleur said during Monday's season-closing press conference. "We've had a lot of success with these guys, and they brought a lot to this team. But I also realize that there's going to be some tough decisions, just like there is every year. And you got to find a way to make some of those tough decisions and try to supplement it in other fashions via the draft or other players that might be out there."
