After the game, the quarterback told reporters he was going to take some time away and make a decision about his future, Fox reported. "Definitely was hoping to have a nice week after the NFC Championship to enjoy the lead up [to the Super Bowl] and start contemplating some things, so I haven't even let the moment really sink in yet," he explained.
"There's a lot of players whose futures are up in the air, so definitely will be interesting to see which way some of those decisions will go. But I'll have the conversations with Brian [Gutekunst] in the next week or so and get a little bit more clarity and think about my own future and how much longer I want to keep doing this," Rodgers reportedly concluded of the team's general manager.
