Aaron Rodgers’ NFL future is uncertain. We don’t know where he’ll play next season. In fact, we don’t even know if he’ll play next season. To that end, Brandon Marshall released a video on Tuesday that either suggested that Rodgers will soon retire, or at least tried to steer him down that path.

Marshall posted a video onto the Paper Route Instagram page, where he hosts the I am Athlete podcast. The caption read “@bmarshall IS THE 1ST TO congratulate Aaron Rodgers on his career,” then asked “BUT Is he retired just yet???” The video was similarly ambiguous.

Marshall started the video with a positive message to Rodgers, saying, “I want to be the first to say, salute to Aaron Rodgers for a phenomenal career.” Marshall then identified Rodgers as his “favorite quarterback ever” before again congratulating him on a “phenomenal career.”

Marshall then listed Rodgers’ accomplishments, starting with him winning a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers in 2010. The former All-Pro receiver compared that Super Bowl win with his own career, noting that he (Marshall) “didn’t even make it to the playoffs.” Marshall then cited Rodgers’ back-to-back league MVP wins in 2020 and 2021, then added I think you won three MVP’s, actually shorting Rodgers by one.

Then, the tone shifted. Rather than listing the achievements of a Hall of Fame career, Marshall then sounded as though he was imploring Rodgers to retire.

“You’re phenomenal. It’s OK to walk away, bro. There’s nothing left to prove. Go travel the world. Go explore. Go build your family.”

Perhaps adding to the confusion, Marshall then reposted the video to his own Instagram page, with a clearer caption, saying “@aaronrodgers12 RETIRES.. . CONGRATULATIONS.”

A lot of people were left confused by this.
