Clay Matthews III has a supporter in Aaron Rodgers. And Randall Cobb. And David Bakhtiari and different members of the Green Bay Packers.
Matthews, after all, is a free agent linebacker. Rodgers is the star quarterback (for now), and Cobb a receiver and Bakhtiari a left sort out. All three posted to social media that they need Matthews again within the fold.
“BRING HIM BACK,” Rodgers posted.
Rodgers, after all, is believed to be in his final season with the Packers. He has made it pretty clear he want to end his profession elsewhere. Still, his voice is being heard loud and clear by Packers brass — as evidenced by the workforce’s determination to re-sign Cobb. That befell after some critical lobbying from Rodgers.
Meanwhile, Matthews performed for the Packers from 2009-18, turning into one of the vital productive outdoors linebackers in workforce historical past. He made six professional bowls (2009-12, 2014, 2015) whereas with Green Bay. He was a fan favourite.
He final appeared within the NFL in 2019 with the Los Angeles Rams, enjoying 13 video games and recording eight sacks and 10 solo tackles. At 35-years outdated, his finest days are clearly behind him. If the Packers can get him to come back low cost, then they undoubtedly will take into account the rally cry of Rodgers and others.
At the identical time, if Rodgers actually needs to fix fences and have a say within the roster, he ought to inform the entrance workplace he is keen to contemplate staying past the season. If not, what he says about signing past-their-prime former Packers should not carry any weight. And frankly, it is pretty immature of him to suppose in any other case.
