Aaron Rodgers appeared Wednesday on “The Pat McAfee Show” amid the ongoing frenzy surrounding his football future.
Green Bay’s quarterback, who has long been speculated to be nearing a Packers divorce and a new union with the Jets, elaborated on how his intentions are to play for New York – but that the teams need to decide on compensation.
It’s been a wild offseason for Rodgers, who is coming off of a disappointing 18th season in Green Bay, where the Packers finished the year at 8-9 and missed the playoffs.
Though Rodgers, 39, did not make an immediate decision about his future, he vowed in January not to hold the Packers “hostage” as he contemplated the next steps of his life.
Then, in February, the former Super Bowl champion embarked on a four-day darkness retreat.
Rodgers told McAfee prior to his time in isolation how he was hoping to “have a better sense of where I’m at in my life” overall.
Upon concluding the retreat, Rodgers spoke about the experience on the “Aubrey Marcus Podcast,” revealing how he envisioned life in retirement and what it would be like if he continued playing.
“My life and my happiness is directly connected to how I feel about football and it gave me such a deep calm about how I feel about the decision,” Rodgers said.
