Aaron Rodgers Says His Time In GB Might Be Over
Aaron Rodgers has addressed the QB situation in Green Bay and it sounds like he thinks he will finish his career elsewhere.
The money quote from the above interview is this:
...my sincere desier to start and finish with the same organization, just as it has with many other players over the years, may not be a reality at this point.
This isn't really a surprise. This is what seems to happen at the end of a HOF quarterback's career. His mentor, Brett Favre, played for 3 more teams after his time with the Packers. Peyton Manning finished up in Denver. Joe Montana played his final game as a Chief. And Tom Brady just moved on from the Patriots to the Bucs.
It's just how things work in the NFL.
The added bit on intrigue with this is the apparent rift that has developed with Rodgers and the Packers. It was the worst kept secret in the NFL that Rodgers and former head coach Mike McCarthy hated each other. Reports were that Rodgers wanted the Packers to use the 2020 draft to get him help on the offensive side of the ball. Instead, the Packers drafted, what appears, to be his successor in Jordan Love.
It seems pretty evident that Aaron Rodgers will not finish his career in Green Bay. The only question now is when will he leave and where will he go. It wouldn't surprise anyone if he left before the season started and word on the street is the Bears don't have an official starting QB.
We'll have to wait and see.
