The Green Bay Packers, at 4-8, have the slimmest of odds to make the 2022-23 playoffs. To say that this season has been a disappointment would be an understatement. Going into the 2022 season, both the Packers’ offense and defense were ranked in the top ten by various outlets. 12 weeks into the season many fans are now looking at the Packers’ 2023 draft pick. Speaking of 2023, Aaron Rodgers made a sneaky comment regarding what the 2023 roster may look like.
Aaron Rodgers Comments On Packers’ Roster In 2023
There have been a lot of talks lately about Aaron Rodgers finishing the 2022 season as the starting QB. Once the Packers are eliminated, he mentioned being open to the idea of sitting out. At that point, it would make sense for Green Bay to get an opportunity to watch Jordan Love. Aaron Rodgers would also be provided the opportunity to heal up.
“I’d love to finish the season out, but I understand this is a business,” Rodgers said. “There’s a lot of us kind of older guys who play a decent amount, who they might want to see some younger guys play. Hopefully, we don’t have to have that conversation. But if that conversation comes up, you know, I’ll approach that with an open mind, and without any bitterness or resentment. Obviously, as I said, I want to win out and then we don’t have to have those conversations. But, you know, I understand if we don’t, that it’s a possibility to have that conversation.”
While many are skeptical on whether or not he would actually agree to have Jordan Love start the rest of the year, a comment he made may show that he is looking towards something bigger.
“That’s an assumption that this place won’t look any different next year,” Rodgers said. “So I think, again, that’s part of the conversation.”
Aaron Rodgers’ assumption that the 2023 roster won’t look too much different than this year would suggest he plans on being on the team next year… right? That is what many Packers fans are taking away from his comment. While we won’t know anything until he actually suits up in September 2023, this may be a look into his current mindset for the future. This year has certainly not panned out the way he (or any of us) thought it would. Ending your career with this type of season could leave a sorrowful taste in his mouth. He may want to come back for one more year and chase the Lombardi one more time.
