Report: Aaron Rodgers chose Packers over 1 other team
Aaron Rodgers is returning to the Green Bay Packers on a massive contract, but the star quarterback reportedly gave legitimate thought to joining one other team.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Rodgers legitimately considered three options — the Packers, Denver Broncos and retirement.

Rodgers ultimately decided to remain in Green Bay on a contract that will make him the highest-paid quarterback in NFL history. Though, the decision probably was not about the money.
A report this week made it seem like the Broncos were willing to do whatever was necessary to land Rodgers. They almost certainly would have matched or beaten Green Bay’s contract offer, plus given up draft picks in a trade.
With Rodgers no longer available, the Broncos may turn their attention to another star quarterback.
