Talk of Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers retiring has been ongoing throughout the season. While the question of where he will go has been a common topic, Rodgers has been exceptionally vague.
In a recent interview reported by the NFL, Rodgers was asked if he has decided against retiring after 2021. He responds, “I wouldn’t rule that out. I think that I’m just enjoying this season for this season. I think that playing next year will definitely be in the thought process. One of the things, wanting to not be a bum on the way out and still be able to play, I think, is important to me.”
While retirement may be on his mind, Rodgers has proved that he is still a contender for MVP this season. He currently ranks 10th in passing yards at 3,689 but has a stellar 33-4 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Rodgers later reflected on his year stating, “If this year has taught me anything, it’s that I still can play, I still have love for the game I’m still super competitive and I still enjoy the process of the week. I miss practice and it’s tough to not be out there, week after week now. But I still do love competing and I love being out there.”
Rodgers has currently been out of practice due to a toe injury. While that is the case, the Packers still have a shot at the Super Bowl being that the team now has a one-game lead for the NFC’s top seed. It is uncertain if he is thinking about retirement or will move from the Packers, but Rodgers did clarify, “There’ll be a lot of things that I’ll weigh in the offseason. Saying that doesn’t mean, or any of the comments I’ve made, doesn’t mean I’m thinking about elsewhere, I do want to clarify that. The things that I’ve said about the team this year, about general manager Brian [Gutekunst] and I’s relationship has been heartfelt and genuine and I do appreciate a lot of the things I’ve seen from the team that are directly related to conversations we had in the offseason, and that was meaningful to me.”
