Aaron Rodgers Has Not Ruled Out Retiring After the Season

Aaron Rodgers loves to script his own drama.

The Green Bay Packers Quarterback is arguably playing the best football of his career this season, and judging his overall skills, he most likely can play as long as Tom Brady. However the Green Bay Packers star insists he has not made any decisions about his playing future beyond this year.

Rodgers did tell reporters that he has not ruled out retiring after the season.

“I wouldn’t rule that. I’m just enjoying this season for this season. Playing next year will definitely be in the thought process. … If this year has taught me anything it’s that I still can play,” Rodgers said. “I still have a love for the game. I’m still super-competitive and still enjoy the process of the week.

“There will be a lot of things I’ll weigh in the offseason.”

Rodgers voluntarily brought up that he is not “thinking about (playing) elsewhere.”

He said that the relationship between him and Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst has improved.

“The things that I’ve said about the team this year and about Brian’s and I’s relationship have been heartfelt and genuine. I do appreciate a lot of the things that I’ve seen from the team that are directly related to conversations we had in the offseason,” Rodgers said. “That was meaningful to me. I’ve enjoyed being a part of conversations that directly affect my job, which I talked about in the offseason. Brian’s taken the lead in that, and I do appreciate the way our relationship has grown.”

Rodgers also spoke glowingly about Packers head coach Matt LaFleur.

Sounds like so far the Packers are doing everything they can to keep Rodgers a happy man.

The Packers are currently 12-3 and  very well may end up in the Super Bowl.

Rodgers clearly loves to hear the sound of his own voice.
