With the Green Bay Packers not being good enough to qualify for the postseason, Aaron Rodgers may be soon taking his talents to either another team or to retirement. The 39-year-old quarterback made his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show to chat about his plans for the offseason.
In the wide-ranging conversation, the Packers QB said once he decides on his future, he may again drink ayahuasca — a plant-based psychedelic he has talked about once before.
“There won’t be another sitting and ceremony before the decision, I can tell you that,” Rodgers said on the podcast. “Perhaps after.”
The ceremony he is speaking of is the three-night event he took part in last year, which saw him drink ayahuasca while under the guidance of a shaman. Rodgers told Men’s Health that he experienced “incredible things” during the multi-day “journey.”

Rodgers also referred to himself as a “hippie” while speaking to McAfee. He said he started using “applied medicine” after experiencing injuries during his career.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel via The Pat McAfee Show:
“Who am I outside of the number 12 you see on the field?” Rodgers said on The Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday.
“Applied medicine has allowed me to see clearly,” Rodgers said as he chatted with McAfee for a final time following the 2022 season, while mostly discussing his NFL future throughout the hour.”
According to the Alcohol and Drug Foundation, ayahuasca is drunk as a liquid and can affect a person’s thinking, sense of time, and emotions.
