Aaron Rodgers’ 5-word response when asked if he’ll be Packers’ QB Week 1
Much has been made about Aaron Rodgers’ future in the NFL. The reigning league MVP has finally spoken out about his tenure with the Green Bay Packers, but Rodgers didn’t exactly give away anything in his cryptic response.
Aaron Rodgers had just five words for reporters as they asked if he was going to be the Packers’ starting QB once the new season kicks off (ht/ Adam Schefter of ESPN):
“I don’t know. We’ll see,” Rodgers stated.

Clearly, Rodgers was not in the mood to address any and all questions about his future with the Packers. It’s no secret that he’s not the happiest of campers in Green Bay right now, so it comes as no surprise that he isn’t committal in his response.
Rodgers has been linked to a move to a number of opposing sides, but it is also clear that the Packers will continue to do everything in their power to keep their cornerstone superstar with the team. At this point, however, this might actually be out of their hands. If Rodgers wants to leave then he can very well force his way out of Green Bay.
Theoretically, the Packers could decide to play hardball and hold Rodgers hostage, but that would be an undeniably ugly situation. Moreover, would that be the proper way to reward Rodgers for everything that he’s done for the franchise for so many years?
The big question now is this: have we seen the last of Aaron Rodgers in a Packers uniform?
