Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers became one of the hottest commodities on the trade market during the 2021 NFL offseason. However, instead of finding him a new home, the Packers decided to fix the issue with Rodgers and convince him to stay in Green Bay for another year. Unfortunately, though he agreed to play for the Packers in the 2021 NFL season, most people still believe that the veteran quarterback's departure from Green Bay is inevitable.

Rodgers' contract is restructured in a way that would make it easier for him to leave the Packers in the summer of 2022.

Rodgers and the Packers are scheduled to face the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football in Week 6 of the 2021 NFL season. Ahead of their upcoming matchup against one of their rivals in the NFC North, Rodgers talked about how he enjoyed being in Windy City.

"I've always enjoyed the city, enjoyed the fans even though they haven't enjoyed me," Rodgers said, via ESPN. "I get it. Maybe there'll be a little more love when my time comes to an end playing here. But I do have a lot of respect for the city and the sports"

Aaron Rodgers On Possibility Of Playing For Bears

With his love for the city of Chicago, reporters couldn't help themselves but ask Rodgers regarding the possibility that he would leave the Packers for the Bears in the 2022 NFL offseason. Rodgers told the media during the press conference that despite the way he feels towards Windy City, he would never consider playing for the Bears.

No, no," Rodgers said in response to the question regarding the chances of him joining the Bears. "It's just not going to happen, man."

Bears Don't Need Aaron Rodgers


Rodgers' recent statement is less likely to have any effect on Bears' fans since they currently have a plethora of quarterbacks on their roster. Aside from having veteran signal-callers such as Andy Dalton and Nick Foles, the Bears recently obtained Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields using the No. 11 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Since entering the league, Field has shown a huge superstar potential. If he continues to improve his game, Fields could be the last Bears' QB that Rodgers would face before he permanently ends of NFL career.

Packers vs. Bears Prediction

Most NFL fans are excited to watch the upcoming matchup between the Packers and the Bears as it would feature the top two teams in the NFC North. Though they are currently on a two-game winning streak, the Bears would still enter their game against the Packers as underdogs.

In his prediction for Week 6 of the 2021 NFL season, Ben Rolfe of Pro Football Network bets on Rodgers and the Packers to beat the Bears with the score of 24-21 on Sunday Night Football.
