He lost my respect just by trying to come back after making such a big deal about "Finally retiring".

it could be that his contract would have earned him something in the region of $30 million for the next three years,

quitting left him with nothing.

(actually quitting could have left him with $12 million as that's what the packers offered him to stay away).

Correction. He was slated to make $12 million this year. The Packers offered him $20 million over 10 years — to stay retired.
