Aaron Rodgers To End Career With Chicago Bears?
How realistic is the prospect of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers ending his career with the Chicago Bears? Realistic enough for two analysts to bring it up in recent weeks.
The first person to do it was former Packers legend Brett Favre.
During a podcast appearance, the idea of Rodgers in the Windy City was floated to Favre – and the 50-year-old endorsed it wholeheartedly.
“Oh, I would love to see that,” he said.
“Just from a standpoint of we have killed the Bears collectively. Bears fans would probably be like, ‘I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I am so glad Aaron Rodgers is on our team.”

The other person to bring up the prospect of Rodgers-to-Chicago up was First Take host Stephen A. Smith
“Of course it’s not a bad idea for him to be with the Chicago Bears,” he said.
“It not a bad idea for him to be with anybody (else) considering the way the Green Bay Packers have treated him. This is a man who has been carrying this franchise on his shoulders for a decade.
“The lack of appreciation – flagrant – that they have exercised in his direction, is so glaring to me. He should tell them to ‘kick rocks and get me the hell out of here.’”
Aaron Rodgers Is Unhappy
Rodgers and the Packers are going through something of a rocky time. He was completely blindsided a few months back when the organization selected Jordan Love out of Utah State in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft instead of someone who could help him on offense.
Since then, Rodgers has not been shy about expressing his displeasure with that entire ordeal.
Is he angry enough to ultimately finish out his career with one of Green Bay’s most hated rivals? Time will tell. But stranger things have definitely happened.
