Aaron Rodgers is consistently one of the most compelling interviews in the NFL. Between his immense football IQ and hilarious takes on shows like "Game of Thrones," one would assume Rodgers is headed for a lucrative post-playing career as a broadcaster.

But apparently, the future Hall-of-Fame quarterback has other plans, as he told Pat McAfee during their weekly interview.

Well, I’ve given a lot to this game... I’ve been playing since I was in eighth grade. I’ve been playing 16 years and I just feel like when I’m done I want to be done. I think it’d be fun to help out an age group that I feel like is real impressionable still, like high school kids. I think being able to volunteer, help, or just help with some quarterback stuff I think would be fun. Just because I love the game so much I don’t want to totally get out of it, but as far as the pro level, I don’t see myself doing anything with it.

That's a real bummer. There's no doubt Rodgers would immediately become one of the best broadcasters in the business. And Packers fans would surely love to see the eight-time Pro Bowler stick around the game any way he can.

If he ever changes his mind, we know he'll have no shortage of job offers.
