Where there's smoke there's usually fire.  There's a ton of smoke that says Aaron Rodgers is going to retire before the Packers first practice on Wednesday.

That smoke is coming from multiple sports books.  According to Bill Huber at Sports Illustrated, Las Vegas sports books are preparing for Aaron Rodgers to retire.

Because of the importance of the reigning NFL MVP, Westgate SuperBook recently closed all its NFC North markets, including projected wins, playoff odds, divisional odds and weekly lines for the four division teams, one oddsmaker at the sportsbook said via a Twitter direct message.

Two other sportsbooks contacted after that initial message said the expectation is Rodgers is going to announce his retirement sometime before the first practice on Wednesday. In response, one of those sportsbooks pushed out its prices on the Packers to win the NFC North and shortened the odds for the other teams. It also shortened the odds of Patrick Mahomes winning NFL MVP.

We've officially entered Brett Favre and the Packers drama territory.  Everyone is now on Aaron Rodgers retirement watch.

I hope there's an actual fire under all of this smoke!  A big blazing retirement fire.
