Reasons Why Aaron Rodgers Should Retire and Never Look Back

Lack Of Motivation

“I don’t feel like I have anything left to prove on the field,” Rodgers told FOX Sports in 2021. “I think it’s more about the enjoyment and the happiness and the quality of life that this game has afforded me over the years.” It’s lovely that he continued playing football because of its intrinsic value but this appears to have changed.


Now he’s criticizing his teammates and insulting fans on Pat McAfee’s show. It seems that he doesn’t enjoy being a star NFL quarterback anymore. He should retire because he has more than enough money. Rodgers doesn’t need to risk further injuries because he has a lot of opportunities off the field (via Bleacher Report).

Too Much Drama

Some Packers executives may justifiably think that Rodgers should retire because he brings too much drama to the franchise. They didn’t appreciate the way he held the team to ransom during his contract extension negotiations. Then the team immediately suffered a downturn and they hold this against him.

His difficult personality isn’t helping matters either because he affects the overall franchise brand. “Sometimes there’s a lot of wisdom in being selective on what you say,” Rodgers told the New York Post in 2022. “This offseason I’ve spent a lot of time working on myself.” It’s a pity that he doesn’t practice what he preaches.


Mounting Injuries

Rodgers has been relatively robust throughout his career but 2022 isn’t going well for him. It’s normal for older players to experience more injuries as their bodies struggle to recover from intense games. But Rodgers is playing with a painful avulsion fracture in his thumb (via Sportsnet).

He also suffered bruised ribs against the Eagles and thought that he may even have suffered a punctured lung. That’s when Jordan Love replaced him on the field and played with surprising maturity. Rodgers should retire because he has enough money not to put himself through the wringer anymore. It’s not worth it because he has secured his future and the next generation’s.


Losing Fan Love

Green Bay fans loved Rodgers before he manipulated the franchise in 2022. Now there is a lot of division and a strong core hates him. But this works both ways because the quarterback doesn’t have any respect for his critics. He told Pat McAfee that they can say whatever they like. Nonetheless, a parting of ways seems appropriate for both sides.

“They can say whatever they want. Nothing’s going to sway that opinion, I don’t think,” Rodgers said. “I could come on here and extoll the virtues of my team and the hope for the future and the excitement about the present, but I think people who are bitter and angry, they kind of want to sit in that (via Sportscasting).”
