Aaron Rodgers addresses future for first time since darkness retreat

Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, recently spoke publicly for the first time since completing his “darkness retreat.” While Packers’ general manager, Brian Gutekunst, stated he is still unsure of Rodgers’ plans for the 2023 season, the four-time AP Most Valuable Player acknowledged the importance of making a decision sooner rather than later. Rodgers emphasized that he doesn’t want to drag anyone around and that all the answers are within him. He believes there’s a finality to the decision and wants to make it soon so he can be excited about the future.

“For everybody involved directly and indirectly, it’s best for a decision earlier,” Rodgers said on the Aubrey Marcus Podcast. “I feel really good about the conversations that are gonna be had, that have been had, with the important people in my life that help to orient me. But I’m not looking for somebody to tell me what the answer is. All the answers are right inside me, and I touched many of them — and definitely the feelings — on both sides during the darkness. I’m thankful for that time.

“There’s a finality to the decision. I don’t make it lightly. I don’t want to drag anybody around. Look, I’m answering questions about it because I got asked about it. I’m talking about it because it’s important to me. If you don’t like it and you think it’s drama, you think I’m being a diva or whatever, then just tune it out. That’s fine. But this is my life. It’s important to me, and I’ll make a decision soon enough and we’ll go down that road and be really excited about it.”
