- Packers QB Aaron Rodgers discussed the recent trade rumors in his weekly appearance on the Pat McAfee Show: “That’s all conjecture until I decide what I want to do moving forward.” (Ryan Wood)
- Rodgers continued: “To be open to the possibility that if I want to keep playing, it might be somewhere else, I understand that. I understand they might want to move on and go younger at a number of different positions.” (Wood)
- He also said he would love to retire a Packer, whether that means this offseason or in the future: “There’s been a lot of fun dreaming about retiring as a Packer because there’s something really special about that. But if the competitive hole still needs to be satiated, and it’s time to move on, I hope everybody would look at that with a lot of gratitude.” (Wood)
- Rodgers on being owed nearly $60 million by the Packers next year: “I don’t think there would be a scenario where I’d come back, and that would be the number. I think definitely things would have to shift.” (Wood)
