Packers

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said on the “Pat McAfee Show” that finishing his career with the Packers “would mean a lot” to him. 

“My thing is, legacy is really important,” said Rodgers via Matt Schneidman of The Athletic. “Having the opportunity to do it all in Green Bay would mean a lot to me. I understand the track record of our squad is there have been times where we’ve had veteran players and they’ve finished elsewhere and I get it. I’d like to make that decision easy for them and the only way to do that is to keep playing at a high level.”

Rodgers said he believes the team’s window is still open to compete for a Super Bowl title and he expects to play at a “really high level” over the duration of his current contract. 

“I think the window is open,” Rodgers said, via Schneidman. “That’s the exciting part. I’m not going into the last five, six years of my career going, ‘Man, it’s gonna be another one or two years before we’re back in the mix.’ No, we’re in the mix right now. I’ve got four years left on my deal. I’d like to play four at a really, really high level. I feel confident right now — I’m gonna be 40 when the deal ends — I feel like I could keep going after that the way things have been going.”
