Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur says he, team president Mark Murphy and general manager Brian Gutekunst all want quarterback Aaron Rodgers to return for 2022. "Every conversation that I've been involved in with Gutey and Russ and Mark, we're all on the same page there," LaFleur said, per ESPN.
"There's no debate." The Packers blew a 10-3 fourth quarter lead this past Saturday as the San Francisco 49ers beat the Packers 13-10 at Lambeaue Field to progress into the NFC Championship Game. "I want to be respectful of his process," LaFleur said.
"Whatever he needs to go through to make the best decision for himself, and certainly we would love for him to be a Packer and be a Packer to the day he decides to retire."
Rodgers may want to change teams
LaFleur was asked what if Rodgers decides to continue his career but outside of Green Bay.
"I haven't even been part of any of those discussions, nor have I -- like I said last year -- allowed my mind to kind of get to that point," LaFleur said. "I just want to do everything in our power to try to get him back here and making sure he's comfortable with the direction of our football team, and confident that we can continue to have success here, and try to find a way to get us kind of over that hump so we can reach further and further and further." Rodgers isn't the only big name the Packers have to address this offseason as star wide receiver Davante Adams is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
"[Adams is] another guy that we're hopeful we can come to an agreement with," said LaFleur, who noted he's already met with the star wideout. "I told him that he's definitely earned the respect of not only his teammates but all of his coaches as well, and I think everybody in this organization."
