Aaron Rodgers posted quite the Instagram post Monday night, which could be very telling for his foreseeable future.
In the post, he thanked everybody he has played with in his football career, along with ex-fiancée Shailene Woodley, who called off their engagement after she felt like the quarterback was choosing football over her.
The post read:
“Here’s some… Monday Night Gratitude for some of the incredibly special people in my life, with some pictures from the last beautiful year.
Shailene Woodley, thanks for letting me chase after you the first couple months after we met, and finally letting me catch up to you and be a part of your life. Thanks for always having my back, for the incredible kindness you show me and everyone you meet, and for showing me what unconditional love looks like, I love you and am grateful for you.
To the men I got to share the QB room with everyday, Matt, Nathaniel, Luke, Jordan and Kurt, you guys made every day so much fun and I’m so thankful for the daily laughs and stress relief you brought me every week of the year. I love you guys.
To the Friday Crew… I loved every moment we got to spend together this year. Your love and support was overwhelming, and I cherish the friendships I have with each of you.
To my teammates, past and current, you are the icing on the beautiful cake we call our job; football. the friendships that we have will transcend our collective time in this game and I am so thankful for the role that each of you have played in making my life that much better. I love you guys, and cherish the memories we’ve made.
To everyone else, spread love and gratitude you beautiful people, and read a book once in a while too while you’re at it. Love and peace”
I mean, the proof is in the pudding. It looks like he may be stepping away from the game of football and announcing his retirement. Or, at least stepping away from Green Bay, where he started his career.
The real kicker is the final picture of Davante Adams and Randall Cobb during the national anthem. Rodgers usually lines up between them but in the picture, he’s noticeably absent.
Of course, nothing is set in stone, but it looks like it may be all but over at this point.
He’s going on the Pat McAfee show to share some “big news,” and the Green Bay Packers have scheduled a press conference today as well.
If he is indeed done, it’ll be pretty wild to see both him and Tom Brady hang up the cleats in the same year, as both guys have consistently been two of the best quarterbacks in the league for over a decade.
