Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers fell short of the playoffs for the first time in four seasons on Sunday night. Now Green Bay is forced to begin its offseason earlier than expected, and the biggest question that needs answering is the quarterback situation amid Rodgers' retirement buzz.

After losing in Week 18, Rodgers' openly speculated on what he thinks the Packers could do at QB.

Rodgers told reporters he has a gut "feeling" Green Bay may adopt a youth movement at quarterback. This isn't anything that's been said to him, but just what his instincts are telling him right now. He also added it would be "slightly egotistical" to assume without a doubt that the team wants him back in 2023.

These are candid comments by Rodgers. He seems to be fully aware of the situation and acknowledges he might not be what the Packers want anymore after a 15-year run as the team's clear-cut starter.

Rodgers said he'll take some time away from football this offseason to ponder his future. He will have to decide not only if he wants to walk away from the game, but also the remaining $59.5 million on his contract for next season. The 39-year-old has indicated he's not worried about the money, so his return wouldn't be monetarily focused.
