Throughout this entire week, fans have been wondering what Aaron Rodgers is going to do next. Of course, he is one of the most polarizing players in the league. Moreover, he is a phenomenal quarterback who can do incredible things on the field. However, every single offseason, he takes some time to reflect on whether or not he wants to play again. Just a few weeks ago, he did just that by going into a darkness retreat. Subsequently, Rodgers came out of the darkness and fans were even more confused than they were before.
Last week, it was revealed that the New York Jets had actually traveled to meet with Rodgers as they wanted to trade for him. Overall, the meeting seemed to go quite well.

Yesterday, it was revealed that he would give his decision on The Pat McAfee Show today at 1 PM EST. In the end, he revealed that his mind was made up days ago as Rodgers does, indeed, want to play in New York.
