Rodgers is in the last year of a contract paying him an average of 33,5 million a year. Rodgers is 37 years old. He should have a few years left. I'd imagine the Packers will try to trade him but if they don't Rodgers will probably report because of that salary.

If I were Rodgers I'd check out the possibility of negotiating a contract to be the permanent host of Jeopardy. Probably a longshot but maybe it could happen.

Couple of things, Ohio St. player, don't care for the Buckeyes especially their fans. Second he is listed at 6'5" ain't that a bit tall for a center?

Definitely a good sized Center. Taller than average. Looks like he's going to be a Starter as a Rookie. Buckeye Center before him turned out to be pretty good!

On an unrelated note, Covid "pandemic" really hurt the Packers.

WR Bailey Gaither retires.
Not the news I was wanting to see today…
I checked his social media and he made all his accounts private and deleted all his Instagram posts. Hope he’s doing alright, was really looking forward to following his NFL career. From what I’ve seen he was having a solid training camp and a lot of packers fans liked what they saw from him.

I wonder why Gaithers retired… Could be catastrophic injury or illness? But I bet more likely it’s personal reasons given the accounts went private. Your wife leaving you or something in that sense can be enough for a rash decision like that. I dropped out or college once over a breakup which I really regret.

Interesting article, I hope Kumerow (and Rodgers) do get their revenge on Gutekunst the Caste Clown:

Jake Kumerow Could Decide Brian Gutekunst's Fate

https://zonecoverage.com/2021/packers/jake-kumerow-could-decide-brian-gutekunsts-fate/

Great article. Everyone here at this message board knows how bad Jake Kumerow got screwed over. He didn't deserve to be cut. It would be poetic justice
if he makes the Bills Roster and has a big year. There is no doubt he can be a star. The kid just needs a chance. Let's go Bills and let's go Kumerow.

I will still root for Aaron Rodgers as he is a hall of famer. I do like that he gave the Packers Org. such a hard time for cutting a guy that was not only a friend
but a very good receiver that just needs playing time.

It’s hard to believe a guy that is playing on par with Davante Adams and Diggs in the last two camps is fighting for a roster spot! I can’t imagine how frustrating that is for Kumerow. If only the best players got to play!

No kidding, by this logic Kumerow is a Top 10 WR, if only he wasn't a honkey!

Kumerow is a perfect example of the NFL's systemic exclusion of White outside receivers. White outside receivers threaten the Caste System's core narrative, much like White running backs and cornerbacks. There's been so many like Kumerow since I began closely following the league's Caste System. It's a real tragedy as many would have been stars, just as Jordy was. Even on Green Bay, Jeff Janis preceded Kumerow as an athletic White outside receiver who was ignored for years before fading from the league (even though he produced on the rare occasions he played).

There has been the very rare blip, such as when Jordy Nelson, Eric Decker and Brian Hartline were all starting outside -- and all putting up thousand yard seasons -- but as has always been the case when "too many" White receivers start doing well, it was squelched. Whereas when some Black QBs finally started doing well it only greatly increased the recruiting and playing opportunities for them, White "outliers" result in the opposite effect, at receiver, running back (McCaffrey), defensive end (J. J. Watt), linebacker (Kuechly and others), safety (Weddle, Smith and others), and cornerback (Sehorn what seems like a century ago). It's undoubtedly a factor in the way Andy Isabella has been used, or more accurately, hasn't been used.

For Kumerow to be 29 and still screwed every year is outrageous. Even being a cousin of the Bosas hasn't helped his cause. His tenacity and determination is admirable and we can only hope that Buffalo will give him the chance the Packers and Bengals didn't. Other than Stefon Diggs the Bills have little at outside receiver, though Gabriel Davis flashed some ability last year as a rookie. But experience has taught that it'll be a huge upset if Kumerow does finally get that chance.

If Jake gets cut by bills things could get interesting for Gutencuck! Rogers will probably put the pressure on to sign the guy.

At the very least Benkert has put a stop to the hype around Love after the 1st preseason game.

Sounds like Benkert has his mind in the game of football as a business. The Cuckenkist will IMO follow the caste rules. Why break them, break them you risk never seeing a big payday ever again, follow them you will probably get another chance. So Love stays and Benkert has to sneak thru waivers to make the PS, but so what he can be signed off it at anytime and then make the $, so everyday is an audition.

Kind of like when Tim Boyle an average UDFA was able to outperform DuhShone.

That he was on the roster is more proof that most football management is absolutely corrupted by the Caste System and most of them needing a forced career change.
