Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard, who is set to enter free agency, is waiting for Aaron Rodgers’ decision just like the rest of us.
A daily reminder that fans aren’t the only ones on the edge of their seats anxiously waiting for Aaron Rodgers to make up his mind — his Green Bay Packers teammates are also looking to see what he’ll do next.
Wideout Allen Lazard is set to become a free agent on Wednesday, and Lazard is planning to factor in Rodgers’ chosen destination in his own decision on whether to stay in Green Bay or start anew elsewhere.
Per NFL’s Mike Garafolo, Lazard plans on making “the best decision for himself” but can’t ignore the real possibility of Rodgers pranking the New York Jets and rejoining the Packers for the 2023 season.
Lazard is coming off a career-best fifth season in Green Bay that saw him record 60 catches for 788 yards, averaging 52.5 yards per game. His choice to wait on Rodgers makes sense but….how long will he have to wait?
That’s the question that the entire nation wants an answer to.
Aaron Rodgers’ decision expected to sway Packers free agent Allen Lazard
Based on the latest rumors, it seems like both the Jets and Packers are just waiting on Rodgers to choose one franchise or the other. But then again, we’re just not sure what to believe.
A trade framework was reportedly already in place. Or not. The Packers president appeared to suggest Rodgers’ Green Bay career was over. Or not. Rodgers liked a tweet. Cue copious amounts of more speculation.
Until Rodgers himself or his good buddy Pat McAfee provide some clarification, the rumor mill will continue to churn, and fans and players alike have no choice but to stay in waiting room purgatory to see where the legendary Packers quarterback winds up.
If Lazard wants to wait on Rodgers to make his free agent decision, he may have to wait for *checks watch* a long time.
Rodgers has quite the congregation hanging onto his every word — we wouldn’t go so far as to bet on which team he’ll land on, but we would bet good money that he’s loving the attention right now.
