Below you will find a post-Super Bowl 56 roundup for the Packers in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 4

Offseason in three or fewer words: Get Rodgers back

Their whole offseason hinges on whether Aaron Rodgers wants to return. If so, then they'll do everything possible to keep Davante Adams and as many of their key players as possible while still making it fit under the salary cap, which they're currently projected to be nearly $50 million over. It will take creative accounting -- and sacrificing future cap years -- but they can make it work for another Super Bowl run with Rodgers. If he's gone, then they could be in a rebuild and might move on from several veteran players. -- Rob Demovsky

NFL.com -- Rank: 5

As usual in Green Bay, it all ties back to No. 12. Aaron Rodgers collected his second consecutive NFL MVP award last week, and now Wisconsin and surrounding territories wait with bated breath to see if green smoke wafts out of the chimney at Rodgers Manor, signaling the return of the great QB. Rodgers has hinted at both retirement and a desire to finish his career elsewhere, but another excellent (regular) season for the Packers seemed to take the edge off acrimony between player and team. Green Bay is reportedly ready to go "all in" to keep its signature star -- Rodgers' ultimate decision will have a profound effect on the future of the franchise.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 5

The big question is whether Aaron Rodgers comes back. It sounds like he might, but they have to do something with their cap situation.

USA Today -- Rank: 6

QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Davante Adams just might return to a team that's gone 39-10 in the regular season under Matt LaFleur. What's certain to return is the specter now following a club that's squandered a No. 1 seed, which should be a massive advantage, in both years since the NFL expanded to a 14-team playoff field.

The Athletic -- Rank: 5

The Packers' massive playoff failure overshadows all of the positive things that happened in Green Bay during the regular season. Even Aaron Rodgers' fourth MVP award feels like less of an accomplishment given the Packers' inability to win a playoff game. They surely hope they can convince Rodgers to remain in Green Bay. But what does Rodgers think? If we learned anything this season, it's that we shouldn't assume we know anything about what he believes or feels.
