Aaron Rodgers: Change is a part of business

Aaron Rodgers has indicated that he will be okay with whatever the decision the Green Bay Packers make this offseason. Like it was the case in the past two years, Rodgers is again taking time to decide his next move. There are currently three options - Rodgers returns and plays for the Packers in 2023, Rodgers returns but gets traded to another team, and Rodgers decides to retire and ends his career.

"If they feel like it was in the best interests of the team to move forward, so be it. Again, that wouldn't offend me, and it wouldn't make me feel like a victim. I wouldn't have any animosity towards the team. I love the organization, I love the city, I love the region.

I'm a minority owner in the [Milwaukee] Bucks; I'm going to be a part of the region long after I'm done playing. I have a lot of love for what's gone on in Green Bay. And I'd love to finish there, I would. I might have finished there.

Who knows?" Rodgers said on The Pat McAfee Show, per ESPN.

Rodgers is open to changes

Rodgers started his NFL career in 2005 and since then he has only played for the Pakcers. But Rodgers didn't play up to his standard in 2022 and there are some who believe the best thing for the Packers and Rodgers would be to split.

If that happens, Rodgers hints he will accept the situation. "What's the old adage that people want to say? 'Oh, the grass isn't always greener on the other side' And I always say, 'The grass is green where you water it.'

I think that's the most important thing to remember. Change is a part of this business, it's a part of life, and I think being open to it and embracing whatever that change looks like is an important part of coming to peace with whatever decision lies ahead of you.

I think that's the most important kind of peace I want to get to is mentally feeling good about where I'm at. If I want to hang it up and do that, having the peace to do that," Rodgers said.
