Aaron Rodgers is still a member of the Green Bay Packers organization, and no mid-season trades are expected, but fans continue to speculate about where the star quarterback will play in 2022 and beyond.
The MVP quarterback has stated that this may be his final season with the Packers. Rodgers admitted that he tried to get out of the Packers during the offseason. Rodgers and the front office, on the other hand, were able to reach an agreement. However, the 2022 season and beyond are still very much up in the air. Rodgers is also getting a lot of attention from a new team: Pittsburgh. With Rodgers set to face the Steelers this weekend, the AFC North team is being mentioned a lot as a possible destination for 2022. On the Pat McAfee Show this week, Rodgers said a lot of good things about Pittsburgh. “It’s a great blue-collar town..”
There are a lot of wonderful people who live there. That city has a lot of history to it. Mike [Tomlin] is someone I admire greatly. He’s a fantastic coach, in my opinion. I admire his leadership style. I really like how he talks after the games. He always seems to maintain a calm demeanor. He appears to be someone who the players enjoy playing for. They’ve had an outstanding defense. For a long, long time, [the]great defense has been a part of Pittsburgh, the franchise,” Rodgers said.

Few thought the Buccaneers would be capable of reeling in Brady. And surely few think the Steelers could put together a plan that would net Rodgers. But Pittsburgh has proven to be an elite organization — and those are the type that can make the unlikely happen.
Plus the Steelers showed the ability to learn a new lesson: That special players require special measures.
Rodgers and the Packers are scheduled to kick off against Big Ben and the Steelers at 4:25 p.m. Nokia News
