Fresh off of narrowly escaping Peru, Aaron Rodgers has given his perspective on the Packers off-season moves. Many fans has openly expressed their frustration at the lack of big-name signings this spring. The Packers’ star quarterback, though, offers a different view:
The Packers went 13-3 last season, won the division, and appeared in the NFC Championship game. All of these were achieved under the leadership of first-year head coach Matt LaFleur. As the current players learn more and more about his system, they will only get better and better. Overall, the majority of the players that got the Packers to the NFC Championship are returning next season, and Rodgers is obviously happy with the roster that has been assembled.
In addition to the disappointment they have expressed regarding free agency, many fans also believe that the Packers have wasted Rodgers’ prime and that his window for a championship is closing. Rodgers, though, has a different opinion about this topic as well:
How much longer will Aaron Rodgers play in the NFL? Only he really knows that answer, but he does give fans the idea that he wants to play beyond his current contract. The remaining years on his contract will keep him with the Packers until he is 40 years old. However long he plays, he certainly appears to believe that he will have the chance to win another Super Bowl with the Packers very soon.
