Is Aaron Rodgers thinking about hitting the greens following football retirement?
The Green Bay Packers superstar Quarterback recently confirmed that he has no intention of following Tom Brady’s footsteps and playing in the NFL until he is forty-five years odl. So it should come as little surprise that Rodgers is already planning for life after the National Football League. He is unlikely to be short of offers, and entering the commentary booth will definitely be something he considers.

It appears as if Rodgers may have some other plans. During an appearance on the Pardon My Take podcast, the controversial Green Bay Packers QB suggested that he may be interested in joining the LIV Golf Tour.
Here’s what he said:
“Probably around Tigers number, 800 million. So there is a chance. Everybody’s got a price. Yeah. We’ve all got a price.”

Last month LIV CEO Greg Norman confirmed that Tiger Woods received an offer around $800 million to make the jump from the PGA to LIV. Tiger declined to accept the offer.
Rodgers considered retiring after the 2020 season and also apparently after last season. Rodgers’ new contract gives him the flexibility to walk away whenever he wants. He claims that, last year, he entered the weekend before the start of training camp 50-50 on whether to play. It wouldn’t be shocking to see LIV bring in non golfing professionals into the mix.
I also wouldn’t be surprised to see them create some sort of PRO-Am league, with guys like Tony Romo leading the charge.
