Brett Favre spent 16 seasons in Green Bay before finally yielding to Aaron Rodgers. Now Rodgers could see himself staying in Green Bay for 16 seasons, too. Or maybe longer.
“I’ve had eight great years there, the last five as a starter,” Rodgers told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “Hopefully I can give them another eight plus years of playing at a high level.”
If Rodgers plays eight more seasons, that would get him to 2020, when he’ll be 37 years old. If Rodgers stays healthy, that’s doable.
Of course, Rodgers will also need a new contract long before 2020 — he has two years left on his current deal. Rodgers said that will work itself out.
“We’ll see what happens with that, I’m not stressing about it,” Rodgers said. “I think the Packers would like me to be around for a few more years and I’d love to finish my career there.”
Rodgers might even finish his career having spent more years in Green Bay than Favre.
