Aaron Rodgers Sends Clear Message About His NFL Future

Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady

Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady are two all-time greats, but there's a big difference between them: their ages. Rodgers is 38 years old. Brady is seven years older. 

Some are wondering whether or not Rodgers will try and play until he's 45 years old, just like Brady has. However, it doesn't sound like the Packers quarterback has any interest in reaching that age milestone, at least while playing in the National Football League. 

Rodgers is telling reporters this week, ahead of Sunday's Bucs vs. Packers game, that he will be doing "something else" when he's 45 years old. In other words, he's not going to be playing football as long as Brady has. 

“I won’t be, I’ll be doing something else,” Rodgers said, via Jim Polzin of the Wisconsin State Journal. “I have a lot of other interests outside the game. Game’s been really, really good to me. I feel I’ve given my all to the game. At some point, it’ll be time to do something else, and I strongly believe that’ll be before 45.”

No one knows exactly how much longer Aaron Rodgers will be playing in the NFL. Same for Tom Brady. That makes Sunday's game that much more memorable. 

Sunday's Bucs vs. Packers game could be the last time Rodgers and Brady square off. Enjoy it while it lasts. 

Tampa Bay hosts Green Bay this Sunday afternoon at 4:25 p.m. ET.
