Aaron Rodgers surely knows how to stay in the limelight and he sure invokes contrasting emotions. On one side we have people who label him as ignorant and careless for giving expert analysis on stuff he has absolutely zero knowledge about, while on the other hand, many consider him a ‘free-thinker.’
Among a number of controversies he has been involved in, one of the recent ones has been about his alleged unhappiness with the Packers camp. Many even opined that he might leave the Packers after this season, whereas some had even opined that he was looking to boycott the Super Bowl if the Packers would have made their way to it.
“I don’t want to put myself on a specific date”: Aaron Rodgers
Rodgers rubbished all such rumors, however, he is yet to clear the air about his future. Recently, Rodgers hinted that he might take a call about his future by the franchise tag deadline out of respect for his buddy Davante Adams. “I’d like to be respectful of the organization,” Rodgers said.
“One decision that will be upcoming will be obviously Davante and his future with the team. There still is this thing called a franchise tag, which I don’t think ’17’ wants the franchise. I think that should be enough time to make a decision by then,” Rodgers stated.
“I don’t want to put myself on a specific date, but I do want to be sensitive to Davante and many other guys who have decisions to make on their own futures. To drag it out past free agency would be disrespectful to the organization and to those guys, and that 100 percent will not happen,” he went on to add.
It will be interesting to see which way Rodgers goes. Moreover, he has made it very clear that once he announces his retirement from the game, he will definitely not come back.
