In a news conference on Wednesday, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers revealed he would not rule out retirement after the 2021 season.

The 38-year-old told reporters he’d make his decision after speaking to his family and team officials, including Mark Murphy, Brian Gutekunst, and executive vice president/director of football operations Russ Ball.

“I’m just savoring this year as much as anything,” Rodgers said “It won’t be something where I’ll drag it out for months and months. … I’m not going to hold the team back from anything and once I commit – and if it’s committing to move forward here – it will be a quick decision.”

It’s a tremendous season for the reigning MVP, who has thrown for over 3,600 yards and 33 touchdowns, while only being intercepted four times in 14 games. Despite Rodgers’ toe injury, the Packers are still the best team in the NFL with a 12-3 record.

Rodgers said he is comfortable with the team’s current direction and his position in it despite off-season rumors that he was trying to get out of Green Bay. This offseason, the veteran says he’ll have a lot to “weigh.”

Rodgers also expressed his admiration for both head coach Matt LaFleur and his Packers teammates. “They make it fun every single day,” he said, adding that Randall Cobb’s return has contributed significantly to his enthusiasm this season.
