Aaron Rodgers “definitely” plans to finish career with the Packers

Aaron Rodgers isn’t sure how many more years he’ll play in the NFL, but he knows he plans to play them all for the Packers.

Doubt about his future in Green Bay came to an end early this offseason when Rodgers signed a three-year contract with the team. The structure of the contracts makes it a year-to-year call for Rodgers to continue playing and he told reporters on Tuesday that he won’t be factoring the possibility of playing for another team into those decisions.

Rodgers said he’s “definitely” planning to take all of his remaining snaps with the same team that made him a first-round pick in 2005.

“If you say I’m for sure playing two more, three years and then you have a magical season that ends with a championship and think that that might be the best way to ride off, I don’t want to commit to something,” Rodgers said, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. “You say, I’m only playing one more year and you have a bitter taste in your mouth and still got the drive and the passion to play one or two more years, I just don’t want to get pigeonholed into it. So I’m focused on this season. I’m never gonna drag it out in the offseason. The conversations I’ve had with [General Manager] Brian [Gutekunst] have been very honest and direct, and that’s not going to change, and we’ll sit down after the season, hopefully after a championship and figure out what the next step is.”

Any championship aspirations will hinge on how well Rodgers meshes with a wideout group that features a number of new additions following the departures of Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. This week’s minicamp is Rodgers’ first chance to work with those new arrivals and they’ll need to make some strong connections in order to put up the kind of offensive numbers needed to stay in the hunt in the NFC.

  1. “I’m never gonna drag it out in the offseason” – again, I pinky promise

    Third time is the charm I guess

  2. Ummmmm that’s ok Aaron we had enough of your lies you can leave the sooner the better .

  3. One season longer than Tom Brady plays. He won’t want to be in the same HOF class as Tom.

  4. As long as he’s immunized and stands up to t9ranny…..He’s good to retire on the greatest team in sports.

  5. I’m truly looking forward to reading the wise and insightful comments that our Viking fans are sure to bring to this article, as they do to every Packers/Rodgers article.

  6. Rodgers deserves to finish in Title Town.

    Does that mean he will finish in Boston? Haha

  7. He won’t drag it out…I think this guy has a different definition of “drag it out” compared to the rest of us

  8. If Rodgers went to NE, I would buy his Patriots jersey.

    Rodgers is a stand up American and should run for Governor or President after his NFL HOF career.

  9. I should hope so. Gotta keep that post-season mediocrity confined to one city.

    _______

    3 words…pot, kettle, black.

  11. Hopefully you get your wish this season – face planted in the frozen tundra and your karma dragged off the field by a tractor.

  12. Alas! one more playoff choke to become a 5 star Chokemaster general, and then like it or not, I will be finished.

  13. My word 4 articles with Rodgers in the headlines in under 33 hours…And nothing of note was discovered….must be June.

  14. Wish we had AR in Minnesota. We’d be thrilled to have him win “only one” super bowl for our listless franchise.

  15. It always amuses me how much the purple trolls love to talk crap about the Packers all offseason long.
    It happens every single year, like clockwork.
    First, their team wins free agency, then they clean up in the draft, causing the fan base to run victory laps like giddy idiots around everyone else.

    Unfortunately, for them, the reality of real tackle football sets in.
    And they all clam up real quick, stuck with that stupid look on their collective faces come early December.
    Just in time to stop watching football and begin their Christmas shopping.
    It’s all a very delicious and priceless moment.
    And I can’t wait for it once again. 🤣

  16. I see the sky falling – called shock and awe off having no real receivers, on his head and having the worse season of his career.
    He will be thinking retirement more in the months ahead.

  17. The packers are undefeated in games that adams has missed. I love how these articles also mention losing scantling. Scamtling…. come on man lol

  18. Don’t need to see him play for the Vikings, Bears, Packers, Lions, Chiefs, Niners, or anyone. Just will be good to see him out of the NFL. Packers can win every SB after, without the Diva.

  19. That’s bad news for the Vikings, Bears, and Lions. No NFC title for any of those teams!!

  20. As I recall, Rodgers had 4 years left on his contract, and was talking about playing into his early forties when Gutekunst and the Packer front office made maybe the biggest draft blunder in Packer history by trading up and selecting a quarterback from the Mountain West conference, thus setting in motion this entire dog and pony show that never would have happened had they just taken a wide receiver in the first round. Let’s not forget to give credit for this mess to those in the front office who created it in the first place.

  21. Julio is still out there. Might be that missing piece Andre Rison was to the Packers 96 Super Bowl Championship. Come on Gutey, its the move Ron Wolf would make and he’s in the HOF.

  22. “Aaron Rodgers ‘definitely’ plans to finish career with the Packers” says the headline.”

    Definitely can’t say the same thing for Jordan Love.

    Would not surprise me at all if Jordan saw a lot of action in pre-season, was traded then (maybe to Seattle) based on his performance (which I expect to be quite good), and the Packers enter the season with Aaron at the helm and Kurt Benkurt as the #2.

  23. So the media and haters had it completely wrong the whole time.

    I told you so.

  24. Rodgers is a legend. Very strange most people don’t like someone who is capable of
    thinking for himself, probably why they don’t like him, he actually has a brain that he
    uses
