Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers promised the Packers it wouldn't take him too long to decide too long on his future after the 2021 season. "It won't be something where I'll drag it out for months and months," Rodgers said at the end of a lengthy answer about his future.
"I'm not going to hold the team back from anything," Rodgers said. "And once I commit -- and if it's committing to move forward here -- it will be a quick decision." Rodgers is 37 but he is still playing at a high level as the Packers stand at 12-3.
"I think that I'm just enjoying this season for this season and I think playing next year will definitely be in the thought process," Rodgers said. "One of the things that obviously [I want is] to not be a bum on the way out and to still be able to play.
I think is important to me. If this year has taught me anything, it's that I still can play, I still have a love for the game, I'm still super competitive and still enjoy the process of the week."
Rodgers insists he loves his current coach
The Packers are having a strong season and they are one of the main candidates for the Suoer Bowl.
"There will be a lot of things that I'll weigh in the offseason," Rodgers said. "Saying that doesn't mean, or any of the comments I've made, doesn't mean I'm thinking about [playing] elsewhere, I do want to clarify that.
The things that I've said about the team this year, about Brian's and I's relationship has been heartfelt and genuine and I do appreciate a lot of the things that I've seen from the team that are directly related to conversations we had in the offseason, and that was meaningful to me.
I've enjoyed being a part of conversations that directly affect my job, which I talked about in the offseason, and Brian's taken the lead in that, and I do appreciate the way our relationship has grown. "I have a lot of love for Matt and enjoy playing for him.
I love my teammates. The coaching staff has been fantastic, and they make it fun every single day. And the guys, obviously, is what you play for. ... So I'm just savoring this year as much as anything."
