Peyton Manning trusts Aaron Rodgers amid Packers feud: ‘He’ll make a good decision’
Peyton Manning doesn’t think Aaron Rodgers needs his advice on his future.
While the Colts legend-turned-Broncos legend knows what it’s like to leave an organization after 14 years as a star, he’s confident Rodgers will make the right decision as he resolves some issues with the Packers.
“Aaron doesn’t need any advice from me,” Manning said in an interview with TMZ. “He will make a good decision.”
Rodgers is mired in a breakup with the Packers that has been the result of many little things over the past two years. The problems appear to have been exacerbated by the organization’s decision to trade for quarterback Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft instead of investing in other areas of need.
Due to this ongoing feud, Rodgers’ future is uncertain. But Manning is not ruling anything out for him, including Green Bay being his final destination.
“We’ll see how it goes,” Manning said. “He did a great job at Green Bay. I think every player his goal is to stay on a team all the time if he can. Obviously Tom [Brady] makes a move. “
Sure, the dream is to stay in one place, but as Manning mentioned, we’ve seen players, Brady included, leave their teams late in their careers recently. And players aren’t always in control if they can stay. After all, Manning left the Colts out of court during the 2012 offseason with Indianapolis set to select Andrew Luck No. 1 overall in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Regardless of what happens with Rodgers, Manning is excited to see the 2020 NFL MVP on the court again in 2021.
“When I think of Aaron, I think of him as a Green Bay Packer,” Manning said. “I can’t wait to see him play somewhere this year.”
Soon we’ll find out where it will be somewhere.
