Packers’ Aaron Rodgers says it won’t take too long to decide on 2022 season


Aaron Rodgers recently passed Brett Favre as the Packers’ all-time career leader in touchdown passes. But unlike his predecessor, Rodgers has no intention of keeping Packers fans waiting as he makes his plans for the offseason.

Rodgers, whose tumultuous offseason with the Packers resulted in an adjustment contract upon his return to Green Bay, said on Wednesday he hoped to make an early decision on his plans for the 2022 season. Until the 2022 season, Rodgers and the Packers are expected to discuss his future with the franchise at the end of the season.

“I’m savoring this year as much as anything, and it won’t be something I’m going to hang around for months and months,” Rodgers said. “I’ll have conversations with my loved ones after the season, and with Brian [Gutekunst] and Marc [Murphy] and Russ [Ball] and the coaching staff and then make a decision at some point. I’m not going to hold the team back from anything. And once I commit, if he commits to moving forward here, that will be a quick decision. ”

Rodgers said he appreciates the improvement in his relationship with Gutekunst, which has allowed him to have more influence over decisions that directly impact his position. Rodgers also spoke favorably of Packers coach Matt LaFleur, who was 40-11 overall in his two-plus seasons at Green Bay.

“It has been a good marriage of our personalities and philosophies,” Rodgers said of his relationship with LaFleur. “He did a good job of making me feel like what I brought to the table is important in shuffling the system in the first season. The first offseason I think we made a lot of progress in really reducing some of the things – on both sides – I thought it was awesome it might not match the plan and the staff we had and some of the things he brought to the table that didn’t quite match done to the staff that we had and that were really honing the concepts and ideas that we were really good at, I thought it was awesome. ”

Following back-to-back losses in the NFC Championship game, the Packers are currently 12-3 and would be the No.1 seed in the NFC if the playoffs begin this weekend. Rodgers is hoping to help win the franchise’s fifth Vince Lombardi Trophy and the second since taking over from Favre as the Packers’ starting quarterback in 2008.

Rodgers has admitted he’s not 100% determined to play next season, but the fact that he’s still playing at a high level will influence his decision.

“It’s important for me that I can still play,” said Rodgers. “If this year has taught me anything, it’s that I can still play, I still have a love for the game, I’m still super competitive and I still enjoy the process of the week.… I love the game. still competing and I love being there. ”
