Aaron Rodgers’ teammates make their voices heard when it comes to Rodgers’ future in Green Bay and the NFL altogether.
Aaron Rodgers’ Packers Teammates Voice Their Thoughts On His Future
Per ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, several current Green Bay Packers players went on the record to offer up their thoughts, feelings, and opinions on the unsettling future of QB Aaron Rodgers, not only with the club but in the NFL.
- Kenny Clark: “I’m going to let him do this thing, man. He’s got his own little thoughts and everything, and just let him handle what he’s got to handle.”
- Aaron Jones: “That thought never even crossed my mind until you, honestly, just said it. I hope he’s back. I can’t even process that.”
- Allen Lazard: “I don’t know where I’m going to be; can’t worry about somebody else.”
Aaron Rodgers Added Fuel To Rumors Following Week 18 Loss
Following the Packers’ devastating week 18 loss to the Detroit Lions, Aaron Rodgers met midfield with former Green Bay tailback Jonathan Williams. Rodgers’ former teammate, who rushed for 72 yards to go along with a pair of scores, including what ended up being the game-winning one-yard plunge with 5:55 remaining in the game, was seen meeting with the former MVP alongside current teammate and Lions rookie wideout, Jameson Williams, the latter of which asked Rodgers for his jersey. However, as caught on cameras (with audio), Rodgers was heard saying, ‘I think I’m gonna hold onto this one’ with a smirk positioned toward Williams.

Rodgers and the Packers fell short against their NFC North divisional rivals in week 18. Following the 20-16 heartbreaker, it confirmed that Green Bay wouldn’t be participating in the post-season for the first time since 2018 and only the fourth time in Rodgers’ career.
What’s Next For Aaron Rodgers?
If this season were indeed it for Rodgers, at least in Green Bay, it’d end an 18-year run with the Packers, where the California native led the team to a Super Bowl championship in 2011. Rodgers ranks second in yards all-time for the franchise (59,060), only trailing Hall of Famer Brett Favre (61,655), while already securing the top spot for the club in touchdown passes (475).
