Aaron Rodgers has given a definitive answer where his career will come to an end as he doesn't plan on leaving the Green Bay Packers. After taking some time to decide his next step, Rodgers agreed on a three-year extension with the Packers this offseason.
Rodgers is under the contract for at least three more seasons but it doesn't neccessarily mean that he will play that long. However, what is clear is that Rodgers' career will finish in Green Bay. "Yes, definitely," Rodgers said, when asked whether he planned to finish his career with the Packers, per ESPN.
Rodgers excited to be back on the football field
On Tuesday, Rodgers threw for the first time to his new wide receivers - Sammy Watkins and 2022 draft picks Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs and and Samori Toure. "I miss the guys," Rodgers said, "I love being around the guys.
It's been a nice offseason. I appreciate my [training] team back in Southern California and the work we put in. But it's good to be back out here with the guys. Good to meet Christian and Romeo and get reacclimated with some of the older guys.
It's just about timing and them feeling the cadence and the urgency and stuff, and just nice to be back in the building with these people. They've been great about me taking care of myself the way I best need to. Obviously it's worked out the last couple years by my play, and I expect nothing less." The Packers will feature a slightly different offense in 2022 after losing Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.
"The more these guys can get around each other, the more they can learn each other, the quicker they can start to develop that chemistry that's so important, that we know is so important in determining our success on the field," Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said.
"So, I'm just excited that we've got him in the building with these young guys and we'll see how he goes today."
