The future of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers instantly became one of the NFL's biggest headlines following the franchise's playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Specifically, Rodgers' future in Green Bay. The star quarterback has said that he wants no part of a rebuild and the Packers have said they have no plans to rebuild. All that remains is for Rodgers to come to a decision on his future. The Packers star hinted at a possible timeline for said decision on Tuesday.
Aaron Rodgers expects to make decision on future well before free agency. He points to #Packers window for franchise tagging Davante Adams in February as timeline. “To stretch it out past free agency would be disrespectful to the organization … and that 100% will not happen.”

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers expects to make a decision on his future “well before free agency.” For all the criticism he takes, this is a classy way to handle such a decision.
Rodgers needs some time to think about his future, but he also wants to give Green Bay time to retool through free agency if he ultimately does decide to part ways with the franchise.
This could also be a sign of respect from Rodgers to his buddy Davante Adams, whose own future could be determined partly by the actions of the Packers quarterback.
With the NFL's franchise tag window period opening on February 22, Packers fans should expect a decision from Aaron Rodgers on his future around that time.
Until then, the NFL world will speculate on the future of the Packers star.
