One of the most intriguing storylines during this NFL offseason is the future of the Green Bay Packers’ star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The future Hall of Famer is reportedly considering various options in 2023, including staying with the Packers, playing for another team, or retiring from football altogether.
While Rodgers still hasn’t made the final decision or at least isn’t ready to share it, he admits that he intends to do it “soon enough”.
“It’s best for anybody who has an interest to make a decision sooner rather than later,” Rodgers said in a recent appearance on Aubrey Marcus Podcast.
“This is my life, it’s important to me, and I’ll make a decision soon enough, and then we’ll go down that road and be really excited about it,” he added.
As part of his decision-making process, the four-time NFL MVP recently spent several days at a “darkness retreat.” He said at the time that the experience would help him get a sense of what he wants from the future. Many believed he would share his decision as soon as he leaves the retreat, but that hasn’t happened yet.
Many analysts believe that Rodgers will end up staying with the Packers. There are plenty of reasons for this, including his familiarity with the organization, a projected improvement in the wideout position, and $60 million guaranteed in 2023.
In case Rodgers decides he wants a new challenge late in his career, the New York Jets and the Las Vegas Raiders are considered the favorites to land him.
