It’s Tuesday, which means Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is making his regular appearance on The Pat McAfee Show.
Rodgers never failed to disappoint during the segment, and he discussed the Super Bowl and revealed which way he’s leaning in The Big Game.
However, one of the most interesting comments was Aaron Rodgers announcing that he is going on a darkness retreat in a couple of weeks.

What is it? It’s exactly what it sounds like — darkness. As Ari Meirov mentioned, Rodgers expects a decision after that. So, after four days in complete darkness, all alone, there could be a decision. Don’t worry, there will be food for Rodgers.
Rodgers says there are two slots where food is dropped in.
If someone can't handle the four days, they're allowed to leave.
No music. No one else inside. Just you in the darkness and your thoughts. https://t.co/5ADb0IDcG1

Of course, the Las Vegas Raiders’ rumors kicked up again with this darkness retreat announcement.
@alanhahn Aaron Rodgers going into a “black hole“? What did they always call right behind the goal post in Oakland? The black hole. #ESPN #NFL #Raiders

Still, nobody knows, and this has to be one of the most unique decisions ever.
The future of one of the most iconic franchises in sports history may be at the mercy of random hallucinations in a pitch-black room on a darkness retreat.
I love this job.
