Aaron Rodgers has now come within one victory of guiding the Green Bay Packers to the Super Bowl in two straight seasons, but judging by his comments after Sunday night’s NFC Championship loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there may not even be a chance for a third straight title-game appearance, at least in Green Bay. Addressing reporters after the Packers’ 31-26 defeat, Rodgers said his future is “uncertain” and talked repeatedly about “the finality” of this particular loss, indirectly hinting that he may or may not be under center with the Packers in 2021.
“I don’t know,” Rodgers said when asked where he goes from here. “I really don’t know. There’s a lot of unknowns going into this offseason now. I’m gonna have to take some time away, for sure, and just clear my head and just kinda see what’s going on with everything. It’s pretty tough right now, especially thinking about the guys that may or may not be here next year. That makes the finality of it all kind of you hit you like a ton of bricks.”
Most of Rodgers’ comments about roster turnover centered on his colleagues, like impending free agent Aaron Jones. But the quarterback made it a point to include himself in speculation about a new-look team in 2021 and beyond.
“A lot of guys’ … futures are uncertain, myself included,” he said. “That’s what’s sad about it, getting this far … The uncertainties is tough, the finality of it all.”
