The Green Bay Packers need to make a decision about Aaron Rodgers and vice versa.
The often-controversial superstar is weighing in on his future with the team for the third straight offseason, which is far from what one would want from a franchise player.
As expected, multiple teams have already shown an interest in trading for the multi-time MVP, perhaps the most talented pure quarterback to ever lace them up.
However, as great a player as he is, his well-documented character issues have raised plenty of league-wide concerns, especially if he were to join a younger team like the New York Jets.
Nonetheless, former NFL superstar LaDainian Tomlinson doesn’t think Rodgers is going to be a problem for his new team:
“He’s a franchise quarterback, one of the greatest of all time, and whenever you go to a new place, things are gonna be different; people are gonna treat you different,” Tomlinson said on NFL Network. “You’re gonna have a new-found appreciation for a new place, trying to impress teammates, coaches, the community, fans, all those things — it’s different.”

On the contrary, Tomlinson trusts Rodgers to be on his best behavior to try and impress everybody around him, adding that a young wideout like Garrett Wilson would also be thrilled to have a guy like him carrying him under his wing.
Of course, that would be the expectation for most players, Rodgers included.
But he’s not exactly been the most supportive teammate throughout his career, especially with young players, so it would be hard to predict that he’d suddenly change his entire personality just to get his new teammates and coaches to like him.
Rodgers is one of the best to ever do it, but he’s also generationally wealthy and one of the most accomplished players in the league, so he doesn’t strike like the kind of guy who would go the extra mile to get everyone else’s approval.
If anything, he seems more of the ‘you now have to play up to my standards’ kind of veteran, and that leadership still might not be suited for every team.
