If Aaron Rodgers decides he wants to stay with the Packers, the team has to make three moves to make a Super Bowl run that much more likely.

This offseason, the Packers‘ ultimate hope is to convince Aaron Rodgers that his place is in Green Bay.

His return is the difference between being a Super Bowl contender and having to restart with an array of unknowns.

What happens if Rodgers decides to come back? The Packers can’t just sit back. There will be a ton of work to do to make it worth it for the quarterback, the team and the city of Green Bay.

3 decisions Packers must be prepared to make if Aaron Rodgers stays

3. Sign Davante Adams to a long-term extension

In all likelihood, Davante Adams will end up being franchise-tagged, which will keep him in place regardless of what Rodgers does. The quarterback’s return will make sure Adams is enthusiastic about all that.

The franchise tag is just a measure to buy time though. Green Bay can prove they’re serious about contending by giving Adams an extension, one that meets his needs but is structured to help the Packers’ cap issue in the short term.

Rodgers wants to play with Adams. Adams wants to play with Rodgers. Together they’re one of the most effective passing duos the league has ever seen. Green Bay has to treat that connection with the seriousness it deserves.
