Packers GM addresses Aaron Rodgers' future: We will first sit down with him

Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst says the team won't be making any official decisions until they sit down with Aaron Rodgers and his representatives. Rodgers, 39, recently completed his darkness retreat. Rodgers, who is yet to reveal if he wants to continue to play and where, could potentially leave the Packers for the first time this offseason.

Also, there have been reports indicating that the Packers won't continue with Rodgers as their quarterback even if he decides to continue his pro career. “He’s a great player, but until we have those conversations, I think all options are on the table.

We need to have those conversations. We want what’s best for the Green Bay Packers, what’s best for him so we’ll get to that coming up," Gutekunst said, per Rob Demovsky.

Rodgers criticized over 'being committed to making headlines'

In the previous two offseasons, Rodgers also took time before deciding his next move.

Last week, ESPN's sports analyst Stephen A. Smith criticized Rodgers for creating unnecessary drama. "Aaron Rodgers seems more committed to making headlines, at this point in his career, than he is to winning. Nobody's bringing that up," Smith said on ESPN's First Take.

For the past few years, Rodgers has been a regular at The Pat McAfee Show. Since that has been happening, Smith believes that Rodgers has been making more headlines over unneccessary stuff. "Aaron Rodgers ain't won a playoff game since he's been on Pat McAfee's Show, have you noticed that? He's been on the Pat McAfee Show for the last two years, he has not won a postseason game.

That's not Pat McAfee's fault, he's got a great show, but he hasn't won a postseason game," Smith said. In the first round of the 2020 NFL draft, the Packers selected quarterback Jordan Love. Many believe that this will be the year when the Packers will pull the trigger and replace Rodgers with Love as their starting quarterback.
