Brandon Marshall advises Aaron Rodgers to end his NFL career

Former NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall is advising Aaron Rodgers to retire from the league and explore other interests in life. For the third straight year, Rodgers is deciding what to do with his future. Last week, 39-year-old Rodgers concluded his darkness retreat.

Now, the NFL community is waiting on him to announce his decision. “Aaron Rodgers, congratulations on a phenomenal career. You won a Super Bowl. Hell, I never even made it to the playoffs. It’s OK to walk away, bro.

There’s nothing else left to prove. Go travel the world. Go explore. Go build your family," Marshall told Rodgers in a video message he posted on Instagram, per Sports Illustrated.

This week, Rodgers revealed he is intending to make his decision "sooner rather than later." “It’s best for anybody who has an interest in this to make a decision sooner rather than later.

I remember before [Brett] Favre retired, there were times in April and May, we weren’t sure if he was going to come back because he didn’t come to any of the offseason program. Then in 2008, he actually did retire in March and then said, ‘No, no, no,’ in June after OTAs, I actually want to come back and play.

That’s when he was traded to the Jets. There was obviously a lot of tension that summer. For everybody involved directly and indirectly, it’s best for a decision earlier," Rodgers said on the Aubrey Marcus podcast.

Even if Rodgers continues his NFL career, the general expectation is that it won't be with the Green Bay Packers. In recent weeks, there have been reports suggesting that the Packers "are done with Rodgers." Also, there are some teams who are closely monitoring what is happening with Rodgers.

The New York Jets are not hiding that they would be interested in adding Rodgers if he became available. It remains to be seen what will Rodgers decide to do with his career.
