The Ides of March are upon us, and so too, it appears, is a decision about Aaron Rodgers’ future.
Rodgers has kept the NFL world waiting for a decision about his playing status since the Packers were knocked out of the playoff race in Week 18 by the Lions. He was thought to be choosing between retirement, returning to the Packers, or continuing his career in another uniform after 18 years in Green Bay.
The wait for a Rodgers announcement has extended longer than most presumed it would. It lasted through a February darkness retreat and into the early days of free agency.
But as Rodgers returns to his usual, weekly appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” on Wednesday, it is presumed that he will finally reveal his decision. That isn’t guaranteed. After all, Rodgers likes to be unpredictable and play mind games with media insiders and NFL reporters.
But still, it would seem that Rodgers has kept the NFL waiting long enough. And with speculation mounting that he will join the Jets, he may want to officially break news about his plans for 2023.
Of course, we won’t know if that is Rodgers’ plan until his appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show.” As such, Sporting News is tracking his interview — and the latest rumors surrounding his future — as it happens. Follow what the Packers quarterback has to say below.
