Aaron Rodgers made some new comments on his immediate future during his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday.
Unfortunately for Green Bay Packers fans, it doesn’t have much, if anything, to do with his future under center.

Rodgers was unable to participate in recent years because of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent vaccination requirements, which McAfee made sure to poke fun at. He’s also been unable to participate in years past, as a couple of Green Bay’s NFC Championship runs have coincided with the Pro-Am.
“There’s only four teams still playing,” Rodgers later added. ” You’re still playing and still excited about what’s in front of you. When you’re on the other side of that and you’re not doing that, I think you miss that competition.”
Rodgers said that the Pebble Beach Pro-Am used to take place the week after the Super Bowl, so it was easier for players like him to participate. Unfortunately, they’ve had to move the event up due to scheduling and with Rodgers missing a few years, he said he’s excited to get back out there.
For now, Rodgers is mum about what he plans on doing in 2023, besides playing in a golf tournament.
“When you have played for so long, it is never about jumping right into the next season,” said Rodgers via The Pat McAfee Show on Twitter. “We had all the conversations that we wanted to have about football for now. They weren’t pressing for a specific answer, and I’m not mentally or emotionally at the point to give an answer.”
