Last week, multiple oddsmakers indicated their belief that Aaron Rodgers might be retiring soon. That was before a new report on Monday said the star quarterback intends to play for the Packers in 2021.
Based on that reported information, DraftKings Sportsbook has dramatically altered the Super Bowl odds for Green Bay. Entering today, the Packers were at +2800.
Following Ian Rapoport’s new Rodgers info, those odds jumped to +1400.

Green Bay’s training camp gets underway on Wednesday. We’ll see if Rodgers shows up.
Packers CEO Mark Murphy has already said there is “absolutely no” chance the team trades its starting quarterback, so it looks like if Rodgers wants to play in 2021, it will have to be in Green Bay. This isn’t that surprising, given how the Packers have let this entire saga play out.
The last two years, Green Bay has been one win away from the Super Bowl with Rodgers starting. Assuming he plays this fall, the expectations will remain high.
