Aaron Rodgers on whether or not he'll be playing for the Packers in September: 'I don't know. We'll see'

July 06, 2021

Unless you've been living an internet-free life, you're well aware that things between three-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers aren't so good right now. Reports are he doesn't want to return, and the disgruntled QB made that even more clear by skipping mandatory minicamp last month.

Other than that move, though, Rodgers has kept quiet about the whole situations, and the organization has, too. During the broadcast of The Match between the team of Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau and Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson, the topic had only been brought up once by Brady, who made a solid crack about it early in the match.

"I think" is right. Rodgers, whose season ended at the hands of Brady last winter, is the only one who knows whether or not he'll be in a Packers jersey again this fall. The Packers, of course, would love to have him back, and have not even entertained the idea of trading the franchise legend. 

Rodgers kept the mystery alive late in The Match, when the topic could no longer be avoided. Credit to Brian Anderson, who is calling the action, for asking Rodgers question on everybody's mind - will he be under center in Green Bay this fall? 

I don't know? We'll see? Followed by sheepish grin? Hooo boy. Pray for Green Bay, folks. If I were a cheesehead, I'd almost rather hear him say "I'm not going to comment on that." "We'll see" is never good. "We'll see" is what your mother used to say when you'd ask if you could go hang at your buddy's house, only for her to turn around an hour later and say "NO!" We'll see is batting 1.000 in adding more confusion to any situation. 

The good news? Sounds like Rodgers is going to tell Charles Barkley the big secret this week in Tahoe. If Chuck is as big of an ally to the content gods as we all believe him to be, then he'll definitely leak it.
