Aaron Rodgers has hinted he’s not ready to retire from professional football – but has refused to rule out a potential Green Bay Packers departure.
Rodgers’ future in the NFL is uncertain after Green Bay failed to qualify for this year’s playoffs, sparking fears he could retire at the age of 39.
However, during a performance on the Pat McAfee showthe Packers quarterback hinted that he could continue playing with a new team next season.
“Do I still think I can play? Of course,’ he said. “Can I play at a high level? Yes. The highest. I think that in the right situation I can win MVP again.
Aaron Rodgers has indicated he is not ready to retire from professional football
The 39-year-old spoke about his future during an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show
“The right situation… is that Green Bay or somewhere else? I’m not sure, but I don’t think you should rule out an opportunity.
“And like I’ve said throughout the season, both sides have to actually want to work together to move forward and I think more talks need to be had.
“I think no player wants to be part of a rebuild, I said that years ago. Reloads are a lot of fun because you feel like you’re close, you’re just a few guys away.
“This game is about relationships, it’s about the players you play with and who you can rely on, even if they might not be big in the stat book – a guy like Marcedes Lewis is an important cog in the machine Dressing room and the dynamics of the team.
Rodgers is still deciding what the future holds for the Packers after the NFL season ends
Jameson Williams approached him after the Detroit Lions’ win over Green Bay earlier this month and asked for his jersey, only to be told by the quarterback, “I gotta keep this.”
“This is a guy I want to end my career with. When I’m playing, I want that guy next to me.’
Rodgers, who was crowned NFL MVP for the second straight year in 2021, has spent his entire 18-year career at Green Bay.
He has penned a three-year, $150 million contract extension in 2022 after previously flirting with a possible exit, but the Packers’ poor season has already put his future in doubt again.
The four-time MVP was hardly like a man planning to stay on after the narrow loss to the Detroit Lions next season, especially when he refused to swap shirts with Jameson Williams.
Williams was caught on camera after the game asking Rodgers if he could have his jersey, to which the Packers quarterback said, “I’ve got to hold on to this one.”
