Aaron Rodgers will ‘definitely’ retire with Packers, he just doesn’t know when

·2 min read

Aaron Rodgers’ feud with the Green Bay Packers appears to be in the past.

Rodgers said Tuesday that he is “definitely” going to retire with the Packers.

“Unless they trade me,” Rodgers added, jokingly, via The Athletic.

Rodgers’ future has been in doubt in recent years for a number of reasons, including the fact that the 38-year-old is set to enter his 18th NFL season this fall. He also skipped the team’s mandatory minicamp last offseason after reported issues and feuds with the front office.

He clearly got that behind him last season, as he picked up his second consecutive league MVP award and led the Packers to the top seed in the NFC. Rodgers threw for 4,115 yards and 37 touchdowns with just four interceptions last season while holding a 111.9 passer rating.

Rodgers said Tuesday that he isn’t sure yet when he’ll retire. He signed a three-year, $150 million contract extension in March. That, he said, is essentially a one-year deal.

"If you say I'm for sure playing two more, three years and then you have a magical season that ends with a championship and think that that might be the best way to ride off, I don't want to commit to something," Rodgers said, via ESPN. "You say, I'm only playing one more year and you have a bitter taste in your mouth and still got the drive and the passion to play one or two more years, I just don't want to get pigeonholed into it.

"So I'm focused on this season. I'm never gonna drag it out in the offseason. The conversations I've had with Brian have been very honest and direct, and that's not going to change, and we'll sit down after the season, hopefully after a championship and figure out what the next step is."
