Aaron Rodgers STILL hasn’t given the Packers a decision on his future a week after withdrawing from obscurity as Green Bay GM sets March 15 deadline for contract talks
The Packers future for Aaron Rodgers has yet to be decided after a retreat into obscurity that he hoped would bring clarity to his next move.
Rodgers said on The Pat McAfee Show that he hoped to have “a better idea of where I am in my life” after returning from the four-day ordeal, but Packers GM Brian Gutekunst told reporters at the group Tuesday that there were no updates on his situation.
Gutekunst said he hadn’t spoken to Rodgers much since their end-of-season meetings, and declined to say outright whether or not the team wanted him back.
“Those discussions need to take place and make sure it’s a good fit,” he said said.
“But of course we know what kind of player Aaron is.”
Aaron Rodgers’ time with the Packers could come to an end after 18 seasons
While Rodgers is still under contract with the Packers, the odds of him returning don’t seem overwhelming.
ESPN cited league sources in January who believed the franchise preferred to “move on” from the quarterback, while the network’s Jeff Darlington added an update Tuesday.
“This situation between Rodgers and the Packers, both public and private, feels more like two sides trying to navigate the perceptions of a breakup than two sides trying to find a way to move forward together,” he wrote on Twitter .
Elsewhere in the league, the musical chairs game regarding Rodgers’ next destination continues to progress.
Raiders coach Josh McDaniels told reporters he wasn’t looking for a steady one-year quarterback job — which seems to rule out the 39-year-old from going to Vegas.
Meanwhile, former Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has a meeting with the Panthers at the house, according to the AP.

If Carr decides to take Carolina as his next move, it could pave the way for the quarterback-needy Jets to get Rodgers in a trade.
Carr has also met with New York, with another reportedly meeting on the combine harvester.
The Jets’ Hall of Fame cornerback Darrelle Revis gave Rodgers some advice in preparation for a potential move to New York.
“I would tell Aaron to come in humility,” Revis told TMZ Sports. “I would tell him to embrace the city as best he can. It’s definitely a tough market, but I really believe that with all of his success and what he has to offer, I think Aaron will be able to weather the storm.”
