With the year he had, maybe he realized his leverage and "revenge factor" was never going to be higher than it is right now.

If that is the case, he really didn't think this through very clearly. He has already lost $500K by not showing up for the contracted offseason workouts. He stands to lose another $35+M if he continues this charade. I don't see a lot of people grieving for him and pleading his case. So really not sure what his endgame was here. Did he just assume that by crossing his arms and standing in the corner pouting the Packers would trade him? If all that we hear about negotiations is true, they actually went further than they probably needed to, by offering to rework his deal and once again, make him the highest paid QB. That doesn't feel like a team that is ready to move on without you.

I hope he never plans on going on the TV Show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" If he does, he will probably be too arrogant to use any of his lifelines and end up getting knocked out way before he makes it to the Million dollar question.

I'm not even sure we're going to hear that much from him. But he's got to do press, so he's going to have to say something.

I'm curious how the fans react to him this year if he plays. Does he get some boos?


I can't help but wonder if that was just step one in his revenge plan.
#1. Play lights out with an MVP year
#2. Demand trade and make the front office regret underappreciating him
If that MVP year finally results in winning it all a second time, I'm fine with the above.

I was speaking of last year, but that didn't result in winning it all. But I agree, if he wins it all this year and then wants to jet, I'd make that trade.
