Packers QB Aaron Rodgers set to make first appearance since everything went to hell
While the Green Bay Packers have now made it very clear that they want Aaron Rodgers to stick around for a long time, the reigning MVP has remained quiet on his plans after all hell broke loose the night of the NFL Draft. There hasn’t been more than a peep coming from Rodgers’ end but, he is set to appear on ESPN soon.
Kenny Mayne is set to sign off of ESPN for good after a storied career with the network. How does this relate? Well, the Packers QB is set to appear on Mayne’s last show with the network, slated for May 24th.
It’s going down.

While Rodgers’ future with the Packers certainly won’t be a topic point (as this is Kenny Mayne’s farewell show), it will be interesting to just see the quarterback back on the screen.
Packers fans had grown accustomed to seeing Rodgers appear weekly on The Pat McAfee Show throughout the 2020-21 regular season. When Green Bay’s season came to an end in the NFC Championship in January, most had assumed it would be smooth sailing until training camp this summer.
Instead, what has unraveled is a complete mess between Rodgers and the Packers front office as reports have surfaced left and right detailing the MVP’s frustrations with many things going on with the organization.
It’s yet to be seen if this Rodgers – Packers standstill is at a point of no return or if the QB will return to the green and gold for the 2021 season.
Jordan Love is awaiting his opportunity but the Packers’ best chance to win a Super Bowl still rides on the right arm of No. 12.
