Aaron Rodgers has been making headlines this off-season whether he has been trying to or not. Ever since the Green Bay Packers season ended on January 8th, 2023, speculation has not stopped as to where Rodgers might play next season. Many thought that Aaron Rodgers might give an answer regarding his future after his dark-ness retreat, however, that wasn’t the case.
Aaron Rodgers Comments After Darkness Retreat Infuriates Fans
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers appeared on the “Aubrey Marcus Podcast” which was released Wednesday. During the podcast, he promised it won’t take much longer to decide on his future:
“It’s best for anybody who has an interest in this to make a decision sooner rather than later. I remember before Favre retired, there were times in April and May, we weren’t sure if he was going to come back because he didn’t come to any of the offseason programs. Then in 2008, he actually did retire in March and then said, ‘No, no, no,’ in June after OTAs, ‘I actually want to come back and play. That’s when he was traded to the Jets. There was obviously a lot of tension that summer. For everybody involved, directly and indirectly, it’s best for a decision earlier.
I feel really good about the conversations that are going to be had, that have been had with important people in my life. Yourself included. But I’m not looking for somebody to tell me what the answer is. All the answers are right inside me. I touched many of the feeling on both sides in the darkness. I’m thankful for that time. There’s a finality to the decision. I don’t make it lightly. I don’t want to drag anybody around. I’m answering questions about it because I got asked about it.
I’m talking about it because it’s important to me. If you don’t like it and you think it’s drama, and you think I’m being a diva or whatever, then just tune it out. That’s fine. But this is my life.
Aaron Rodgers coming out of his darkness retreat only to announce he won’t make a decision yet left many fans irritated. Yes, Aaron Rodgers makes a great point stating that it is his life. If you don’t want to follow his personal life, then tune it out. However, many believe that the Green Bay Packers would be in a much better position if they knew the intentions of their franchise player.
One day earlier, Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said at the NFL scouting combine that there has been little or no conversation with Rodgers since they wrapped up their end-of-season meetings in mid-January. Gutekunst said he hoped for a decision before free agency begins in less than two weeks. Many fans had no so pleasant reactions to this Aaron Rodgers news:
Green Bay will make the decision for him by the 10th, book it.

So another month of Aaron Rodgers making us wait to announce he’ll be the Packers QB next year right?

There were a lot of “I” in that statement. Tells you all you need to know, if I’m GB, move on!
