The 2020 NFL season was one of turmoil.
From the pandemic to protests, the league faced multiple controversies.
But now the NFL may face its biggest offseason storyline because this star quarterback just made a surprising admission about his future.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a regular season for the ages.
In the 2020 season, Rodgers threw 48 touchdowns passes with only 5 interceptions making him a virtual lock to win league MVP.
But in the wake of the Packers 31 to 26 defeat at the hands of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship game, Rodgers is openly wondering if he has a future in Green Bay.
“[The Packers have] a lot of guys’ futures that are uncertain – myself included,” Rodgers told the press after the game. “That’s what’s sad about it, most, getting this far. Obviously, it’s going to be an end at some point, whether we make it past this one or not, but just the uncertainty’s tough and finality of it all.”
At age 37, Rodgers has three years and $134 million left on his contract making him virtually untradeable.
But after the Packers selected Utah State quarterback Jordan Love in the first round of last spring’s NFL draft and the Packers third loss in the NFL Championship game since winning the Super Bowl in 2011, Rodgers is beginning to question if it is time to move on from the team that selected him in the 2005 NFL Draft.
Rodgers understands the nature of the NFL and the quarterback position better than anyone.
When the Packers drafted him in the First Round back in 2005, Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre was 36 years old.
Rodgers sat for three seasons and eventually took over as the Packers started in 2008.
With Love on the roster and the Packers continually falling short of their goal to make it back to the Super Bowl, Rodgers sounds like he believes he is on the wrong end of the life cycle of a franchise quarterback.
