But finally, Aaron Rodgers has spoken out. Or at least given us a time frame as to when to expect the 2020 NFL MVP to make a decision about his future. 

Enjoying himself at the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament in Tahoe, NBC Sports caught up with Rodgers in between the game to talk about the prevailing scenario. And Rodgers replied by saying that he plans to make a decision on his future soon. As soon as the next few weeks.
