Aaron Rodgers may be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel after holding discussions with the New York Jets, it seems.
One of the most talked-about subjects in the NFL offseason thus far has been the quarterback’s future, and with free agency about to begin, Rodgers’ next move may already be decided.
On the “I AM ATHLETE” podcast, former Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall, 39, was questioned about his future and whether it involved anything other than the Green Bay Packers.
Rodgers said: “Stay tuned … I think it won’t be long. There’s a time limit for all this.”
The veteran was also asked about his meeting with Jets owner Woody Johnson, having been given permission by the Packers to speak to the New York team.
Rodgers kept his cards close to his chest and responded: “It’s always interesting meeting important figures in the sport – yeah it’s always interesting. That’s all I’m giving you.”
The Packers icon recently spent time at a darkness retreat as he looked to find answers on his impending move.
“All the answers are right inside me,” the four-time MVP said after his time at the retreat. “I touched many of them, and definitely the feelings, on both sides, during the darkness, and I’m thankful for that time.
“There’s a finality to the decision. I don’t make it lightly. I don’t want to drag anybody around. Look, I’m answering questions about it because I get asked about it. I’m talking about it because it’s important to me.”
If Rodgers was to move from the Packers, it would end Rodgers’ time in Wisconsin following 18 seasons with the team.
During his time in Green Bay, Rodgers has won the Super Bowl once and had extremely high levels of personal success, even though the team often fell short of expectations. He ranks first in franchise history in passing touchdowns and second in passing yards.
Although reports suggest Rodgers might be on the way out, Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy isn’t ruling anything out.
“He’s obviously a great player. Four-time MVP. But I think it’s trying to find what he wants and what we want, and hopefully, we can find a win-win situation,” Murphy said, per the NFL website.-CNN
