Aaron Rodgers has seen the light, leaving the New York Jets waiting for his decision

According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has emerged from his darkness retreat.

According to a report from Pro Football Talk, Rodgers was unable to last the full four days and four nights that he initially said he was planning on. Pro Football Talk reports that Rodgers arrived on Monday and left on Wednesday.

Rodgers’ retreat came at an odd time for the New York Jets. While Rodgers was in the dark, the Jets had a very positive meeting with free agent quarterback Derek Carr, and there appears to be mutual interest from both sides. However, it seems the Jets still view Rodgers as their top option, so the Jets are stuck in a tough spot: Do they risk losing Carr to another team by waiting on Rodgers to make his decision, or do they play it safe and try to sign Carr now?

Rodgers is expected to decide between remaining in Green Bay, asking for a trade to another team, or retiring. A report on Wednesday from ESPN’s Jeff Darlington indicated that Green Bay is expecting Rodgers to return, although the validity of the report remains unclear. There were multiple conflicting reports a few days earlier that suggested the Packers are seeking to move on from Rodgers.

Rodgers never said that he would announce his intentions for the 2023 season immediately after he emerged from his darkness retreat, or that his retreat was even intended to help him make a decision. Still, we all knew that Rodgers would not be deciding anything during that time period. So, now that he’s out, the possibility has opened up for Rodgers to declare his plans for the 2023 season.

The sooner Rodgers decides, the better it is for the Jets. For now, the Jets wait in agony.
