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.
