2019 was another disappointing end to a promising season for veteran NFL quarterback – Aaron Rodgers. The Green Bay Packers quarterback led the Packers to a 13-3 record last year. However, he failed to perform when it mattered most as his team fell to a defeat in the Championship final to San Francisco 49ers.
In 2019, Rodgers had a tremendous individual season in the NFL once again. The California-born athlete threw for 4,000+ yards for the second year in a row while making 26 passing TDs. Despite those numbers, the Packers traded up in the NFL 2020 draft to secure the signing of rookie quarterback – Jordan Love.
Rodgers said in an earlier interview that he was ‘surprised’ by that move but also understood that ‘its part of the business’. Rumors began to emerge that Rodgers, who wants to play in the NFL till his forties, could move for greener pastures if he loses his starting quarterback role.
However, Packers’ head coach Matt LeFleur made it very clear that Mr. Rodgers will be their number one QB heading into the 2020 NFL season.
“Right now, most importantly, Aaron’s our quarterback and I see him here for a really long time. And however long that is, I don’t think anybody knows.
“Nothing’s guaranteed in this league but I feel so lucky to be able to work with him on a daily basis. I don’t see that changing for a really long time,” LaFleur told reporters on Sunday via NFL’s official website.
Several analysts and former Packers teammate James Jones have tipped Aaron Rodgers for a stellar 2020 outing in the NFL. They argue that the arrival of Jordan Love at Lambeau field will spur Rodgers on to perform even better than the previous years. Can the two-time NFL MVP award lead the Packers to another Super Bowl before he ends his career?
