Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, has announced his retirement intentions, despite the fact that the start of the 2022 season is still three months away. When asked on Tuesday if he expected to conclude his career with the Packers, Rodgers was adamant that he would.
He remarked on the first day of Packers required minicamp, “Yes, sure.” Rodgers, the two-time AP NFL MVP, agreed to a three-year, $150 million contract extension with the Packers this offseason. The duration of the contract, though, should not be used to predict how much longer Rodgers, 38, will play. While he’s made it plain that he’ll retire while wearing the green and gold, Rodgers is only focused on the 2022 season and understands that how the season unfolds will determine whether he continues to play or retires.
“I don’t want to commit to anything if I say I’m confident I’ll play two or three more years and then have a spectacular season that finishes with a championship and believe it’s the ideal way to ride out,” Rodgers said. He is focused on this season and is anticipated to provide one of his greatest performances as a result. Rodgers hasn’t said anything about his post-retirement intentions.
