The Green Bay Packers defeated the Chicago Bears 28-19 on Sunday afternoon. The win also allowed Aaron Rodgers to renew his ownership of the Packers’ oldest rival. However, whereas Rodgers screamed “I still [expletive] own you to Bears fans in 2021, his interactions towards them today were a lot more civil and reflective. Following the Packers’ two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter, Rodgers saluted Bears fans who were screaming at him and giving him the finger.

After the game, Rodgers was asked about his salute to the fans. His response will leave many wondering if he will return in 2023.
Aaron Rodgers’ on his salute to the Soldier Field crowd after the 2-point play: “You never know when it’s going to be your last time playing in a place.”
Worth noting, he has said something like that here before.

“You never know when it’s going to be your last time playing in a place.” As Demovsky notes in his Tweet, Rodgers has said things like this before. However, it is a good reminder that Rodgers has more years behind than in front of him in his NFL career. Despite the Packers’ 5-8 record, it is good to appreciate greatness while it is still here.

Will Aaron Rodgers Come Back in 2023?
Of course, the question many Packers fans have is whether or not Rodgers will come back in 2023. The most important thing to keep in mind is that Rodgers is just about impossible to predict. He has not made a decision about his future beyond this season, and won’t do so until after the season is over.
That being said, he is due to make $59.5 million next season. It is hard to believe anyone would walk away from that kind of money.
