After all, the band may not be reunited.
Aaron Rogers, David Bakhtiari and Randall Cobb Sent a clear message to Packer Brass Via Instagram a few days ago: All three players posted the same photo of former Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, which seemed to indicate that the trio wanted to bring him back to the team.
However, Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst (Brian Gutekunst) does not seem to have any interest in achieving this goal.
“We did not discuss this,” Gutekunst said in response to the covert IG recruitment.
I don’t know what Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb did in their IG post about bringing back Clay Matthews the other day, but General Manager Brian Gut Kunst said: “We haven’t discussed this problem.”

Matthews is a long-term passer for the Packers and has not played in the NFL since 2019. This is his first and only season with the Rams. He had a productive season, securing 8 sacks in 13 games with Los Angeles, which was his first game in Green Bay.
However, Matthews is now 35 years old. Although the Packers need a bit of depth from an outside linebacker, it sounds like they don’t want to allocate resources to an elderly pass rusher who hasn’t played for more than a year.
Rogers played in the offseason drama with the Packers, and he once again put Cobb in the Green Bay jersey. It sounds like he will not realize his second wish with Matthews.
