There are not any absolutes in soccer, Aaron Rodgers would really like you to know.
Chances are high, the NFL world hasn’t seen the final of Rodgers in a Packers uniform, however Rodgers’ feedback Tuesday on “The Pat McAfee Present” aren’t serving to ease the nervousness of some Inexperienced Bay followers hoping to see No. 12 once more subsequent season.
In a prolonged interview with McAfee, Rodgers elaborated on his feedback after the NFC championship sport, when he talked about that his future with the Packers is “unsure” in the meanwhile:
It was extra of a realization I feel that in the end my future is just not essentially in my management. That was what sort of hit me within the second. I used to be occupied with Aaron Jones and Corey Linsley, different guys we’ve below contract, I do not know what their future is gonna be, myself included. Clearly, after the season that I had, probably win an MVP, clearly we made one other good run, I do not assume there’s any motive why I would not be again. However there’s not many absolutes, as you guys know, on this enterprise. So to make an absolute assertion about one thing that’s not an absolute, I did not do it, and I suppose that is why it went kinda nuts.
Rodgers went on to reaffirm — a number of instances — that there are “no absolutes on this enterprise,” and that the Packers’ choice of quarterback Jordan Love within the 2020 NFL Draft made him come to that realization. He additionally stated that the reply he gave within the moments after the 31-26 loss to the Buccaneers was as actual because it will get, and never emotion speaking.
Rodgers actually skirted across the typical firm line of, “Hell, yeah, I wish to be a Packer once more subsequent 12 months,” and his honesty is admirable; sincere solutions from professional athletes are one thing Rodgers feels is missing right this moment, as he talked about within the interview. Rodgers additionally claimed that profession one-team guys resembling Derek Jeter and Tim Duncan are a rarity in sports activities, however one thing he is dreamt of in his profession. It is simply not a lock.
Earlier on Jan. 26, Packers president/CEO Mike Murphy stated that Rodgers could be again below middle in 2021.
“There isn’t any means in heck Aaron is just not gonna be on the Packers,” Murphy said Monday. “He’ll be the MVP of the league, may need had his greatest 12 months ever, he is our unquestioned chief, and we’re not idiots.”
Actually, all of this feels like Rodgers is all however sure to don Inexperienced and Gold in 2021. However, as we all know, there are “no absolutes on this enterprise.”
So, let the hypothesis run rampant.
