Aaron Rodgers is STILL unsure whether or not he will return for a 19th season…
Aaron Rodgers said on Tuesday he has yet to decide whether to hang up his boots from the NFL, saying he is currently “not part of any talks” about his future in Green Bay.
Rodgers signed a three-year, $150 million extension with the team in March 2022 and is contracted through 2026, but played poorly last season as the Packers missed the playoffs.
And after 18 seasons in Green Bay, trading rumors are swirling about the quarterback — and even he doesn’t seem sure what will happen next.

“It sounds like there are already conversations going on that I’m not involved in. That’s very interesting,” Rodgers said on The Pat McAfee Show.

One such opportunity is the quarterback-needy New York Jets, where he could reunite with former Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett (now in the same role with the Jets).
‘Love hack. Hack is my husband. Love him and Megan and the kids,” Rodgers said. “They are very special to me. We really bonded when he was in Green Bay. He made it fun. He made the room nice. He made the weeks fun.’
The four-time MVP suggested he wouldn’t make a decision before the Super Bowl, but indicated he was “confident” that his choice would become clearer to him in a few weeks.
