Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said Saturday during a golf event that he’s planning to “figure things out in a couple weeks” regarding his plans for the 2021 season.
“I’m going to enjoy the hell out of this week. And then get back to working out, and figure things out in a couple weeks,” Rodgers said, per Ben Kenney.
Rodgers skipped OTAs and minicamp and it remains to be seen whether he’ll report on time for training camp. Although, he would be subject to mandatory fines for missing training camp should he opt to stay away from the team.
The Packers have maintained that they have no intention of trading Rodgers and they expect him to be their quarterback in 2021 and beyond.
Green Bay has reportedly offered Rodgers a contract extension. However, the details of their offer aren’t known and it’s possible that a contract alone wouldn’t change much from Rodgers’ end, as there could still be questions about his future with the team.
Rodgers, 37, is a former first-round pick of the Packers back in 2005. He agreed to a four-year, $134 million extension that includes over $100 million guaranteed in 2018.
Rodgers is owed base salaries of $15,050,000 and $25 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2020, Rodgers appeared in all 16 games for the Packers and completed 70.7 percent of his passes for 4,299 yards, 48 touchdowns, and five interceptions. He also rushed for 149 yards and three touchdowns.
