Aaron Rodgers’ approach amid uncertainty on future with Green Bay
Even after narrowly missing out on the Super Bowl last season, veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers still looked like the Green Bay Packers’ franchise playmaker for the years to come. However, the tides changed when the Packers decided to draft Utah State quarterback Jordan Love with the 26th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. The situation over at the Packers’ camp was suddenly clouded in uncertainty.
Rodgers bared his sentiments in an article written by ESPN staff writer Rob Demovsky:
Yesterday Matt LaFleur said he sees Aaron Rodgers being with the Packers for “a really long time.” When asked how he would define a “long time,” Rodgers said: “I savor every moment, every season. … I don’t know what the future holds. I know I can control this year and my play and my approach and my attitude.”
Despite his advancing age, Rodgers still performed on a high level last season. He accumulated 4,002 passing yards on 569 attempts and scored 26 passing touchdowns. The two-time NFL MVP led the Packers to a 13-3 finish to clinch the NFC North division.
His team marched on the playoffs, starting with a 28-23 win over the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC semi-final game. However, the Packers eventually encountered the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game and finished on a 37-20 losing effort.
However, the upcoming 2020 season will come in a little differently for Rodgers. He will now be under the front office’s watch as a young quarterback in Jordan Love is ready to take over the position at any time. Rodgers will be aiming to do everything he can with the same limited options he has at his disposal.
With all the uncertainty brewing in Green Bay, it will be interesting to see if Rodgers will still be the primary signal-caller for the Packers come Week 1.
