Quarterback Aaron Rodgers says “I don’t think there’s any reason why I wouldn’t be back” with the Green Bay Packers next season, but added that his future isn’t necessarily in his control.

Rodgers was clarifying remarks he made Sunday after the Packers’ 31-26 NFC Championship Game loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Rodgers said “there’s a lot of guys’ futures that are uncertain, myself included.”

“Obviously after the season I had, potentially winning MVP and we obviously made another good run, I don’t think there’s any reason why I wouldn’t be back,” Rodgers said Tuesday during his weekly spot on SiriusXM Radio’s “The Pat McAfee Show.” “… I’m not like jetting out of town and, ‘Sayonara, Green Bay.’”

The Cal alum has three years remaining on the four-year, $118 million extension he signed in August 2018. The two-time MVP has said that the Packers’ decision to select Utah State quarterback Jordan Love in the 2020 draft complicated his hopes of finishing his career in Green Bay.

Goff on the block? The Rams are contemplating the possibility of a near future without quarterback Jared Goff.

General manager Les Snead echoed head coach Sean McVay’s uncertainty last week about the prospects of Goff, the fifth-year starter from Cal who led the Rams to the Super Bowl two seasons ago.
