Aaron Rodgers would like to get involved in CBA discussions during the next round of negotiations.
"It has to change," Rodgers said. "I don't know why the owners wouldn't want it to change, because it's made the league look bad a few times. I read something -- you know I said that I felt like we had the opportunity to make a change in the first CBA, and I stand behind that, that statement.
"Many guys I don't think were aware of how strong our position could have been had we waited a little longer. One of the things that we should have maybe pushed for was to have an independent arbitrator. I don't think we should have to give anything for that to happen in the next negotiation."
The current collective bargaining agreement ends after the 2020 season.
"If I'm fortunate enough to be around for the next one, I think it could be an opportunity to help out the next generation of players, by taking maybe more of a role in that," Rodgers said. "If it's wanted by the union, I would be open to it because I think we need some really strong leaders when we come back to the table, and realize that, as opposed to maybe the last time the CBA rolled around, that we have more bargaining power than we showed."
