Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is still undecided on his future but he said his decision will come in the near future. Rodgers, 38, has spent his entire career in Green Bay and on Thursday he won his fourth NFL MVP award.
Rodgers has now won back-to-back NFL MVP awards but the Packers didn't make a Super Bowl trip last year or this year. "I think you've got to take some of the emotion out of it and then kind of lean into understanding what it takes to revamp and feel like what's the best place," Rodgers said, per ESPN.
"The best decision for me moving forward -- not really place -- more just what does it feel like to commit to a season if that's what I want to do? The good thing is I still feel like my body is in a good place."
Rodgers thinks the Packers are at a good place
Rodgers believes the organization will be in a good place even if he leaves.
Two years ago, the Packers used a first round draft pick to select quarterback Jordan Love. Love has had two seasons to learn under Rodgers. "I think there's a lot to build on there, whether I'm there or not," Rodgers said.
"I think they've got a really good nucleus in place. Should I come back, there's some things that need to get done, probably, to get the team where it needs to go. Should I feel like it's my time to move on and do something else, I'll be extremely eternally grateful for the Green Bay Packers organization, the fan base and all the incredible 17 years' worth of memories and friendships and special, special moments that I've gotten to share with members of the organization, my teammates, people that work there and the fans, as well. I'm just super-thankful for every single moment in the journey."
