Life in Green Bay, as profitable as it has been for Aaron Rodgers, may not last forever.

In a brief chat with the Associated Press, Rodgers was quoted as saying: "I think you have to be humble enough to realize if it could happen to Brett, it can happen to you."

The Brett he spoke of is Brett Favre, who spent 16 years with the Packers before an ugly breakup landed him in New York with the Jets and eventually in Minnesota for two seasons. 

Rodgers has two years remaining on his contract with the Packers, but the fact that his $20 million salary was less than Joe Flacco, Carson Palmer, Kirk Cousins, Matt Ryan and Matthew Stafford in 2017, there's plenty of reason to believe the Packers will need to back up the Brinks truck very soon.
