The NFL appears to be acknowledging the fact that Aaron Rodgers isn't likely to be on the field for the Packers this season. The league edited a commercial that ran during the draft hyping the "Rodgers vs Mahomes" matchup.
The new version of the commercial is now hyping the Lamar Jackson vs Patrick Mahomes matchup instead of Rodgers vs Mahomes.
From Pro Football Talk:
With the schedule release three days away, there’s a new version of the commercial. And “Rodgers vs Mahomes” is gone.
It’s an unofficial acknowledgement by the NFL of the uncertainty as to the question of whether 2020 MVP Aaron Rodgers actually will be playing for the Packers in 2021. And it underscores the eleventh-hour complications to the scheduling process regarding the placement of the Packers-Chiefs game — and of the two games between Kansas City and Denver, the most likely Rodgers destination (if he’s traded).
You really hate to see it. On the bright side if Rodgers ends up with the Broncos the NFL will get to milk those games for all that they're worth.
