Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has yet to announce a decision on his future in football.
Though an official decision on 23 has yet to be announced by the four-time league MVP, one former star NFL wide receiver recently hinted that Rodgers is, in fact, done with football. In a clip posted on the “Paper Route” Instagram page, ex-NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall congratulated Rodgers on his career:
“I want to be the first to say salute to Aaron Rodgers for a phenomenal career. You’re one of the greatest. You, personally, you’re my favorite quarterback ever. Favorite. Congratulations on a phenomenal career.”
Again, Rodgers still hasn’t publicly announced anything. He completed a darkness retreat last week, hoping that it will help him make a decision on his future.

Even if Rodgers commits to playing football in 2023, that only answers one of the two major questions. The other one is where he’ll suit up if he does come back for his age 39/40 season, as many believe Rodgers and the Packers could ultimately decide to part ways.
The future Hall of Famer signed a three-year contract extension with the Packers worth $150 million last offseason. This served as a firm indicator that he was planning to finish his career right where it started, and that Rodgers would play behind the 2022 season.
But all of that is up in the air now. Rodgers and the Packers missed the postseason for the first time in four years, finishing with a disappointing 8-9 record. Was that heartbreaking Week 18 loss to the Detroit Lions the last of Rodgers on the field? Only time will tell.
