The latest in the Aaron Rodgers drama is that the Packers are making concessions in an attempt to lure him back for at least one more season.  According to Adam Schefter, the two sides are close to a deal to end his holdout.

From ESPN:

Over the past weekend, the two sides were able to reach mutually agreed-upon terms that are close to convincing Rodgers to abandon plans he had to skip training camp and instead return for it.

It is not done yet, and Rodgers still hasn't left California, but both sides are hoping to finalize the agreement shortly, per sources.

The agreement in principle would include an approximation of the following conditions that the two sides now are finalizing to alleviate and address some of Rodgers' issues before the opening of Tuesday's training camp:

* The 2023 year in Rodgers' contract -- the last one in his current deal -- would be voided, with no tags allowed in the future.

* The Packers would agree to review Rodgers' situation at the end of this season.

* Rodgers' contract would be adjusted with no loss of income to give the Packers more cap room now.

* Mechanisms will be put in place to address Rodgers' issues with the team.

No word on whether Rodgers or the Packers will be responsible for changing his diapers.  But it sounds like they're going to keep him around for one last loss in the NFC Championship game before he finishes his career somewhere else, possibly Denver.

This would also creates a ton of off-season drama next season...
