Why Aaron Rodgers won’t be leaving the Green Bay Packers any time soon

Brett Favre might think that Aaron Rodgers will finish his career with a team other than the Green Bay Packers. 

However, the Packers' selection of Utah State QB Jordan Love in the first round of last weekend's NFL draft doesn't mean Rodgers will be leaving the team.

There are tens of millions of reasons why the Packers won't be trading Rodgers. Outside of being one of the league's elite quarterback, Rodgers has a lucrative contract that runs through 2023.

So, Rodgers — provided he's healthy — will be behind center for the foreseeable future while Packers coach Matt LaFleur molds Love into an NFL quarterback.
