Tom Brady do not want Aaron Rodgers to retire
Tom Brady, a former NFL star, has advised Aaron Rodgers not to retire from the NFL, stating that the league needs good quarterbacks like him.
This comes after Brady announced his second retirement, after initially retiring last year. Despite his departure, Brady believes that Rodgers should continue playing, given his importance to the league. Rodgers still has two years left on his contract with the Green Bay Packers, but there have been mixed signals about what he will do next season.
“You know what, I hope he doesn’t retire,” Brady said on the latest episode of his Lets Go Podcast. “…I think the league needs good quarterbacks, and he’s one of the greats. So if he retires, it’ll be a sad day for the league.”
Although it was a disappointing season for the Packers, Rodgers is still in demand, with teams like the Las Vegas Raiders and New York Jets showing interest in him. Retirement is also an option, something he’s hinted at since the end of the regular season. However, Brady has urged him to keep playing, as it would be a sad day for the league if he were to retire.
The Packers had a poor season last year, missing out on the postseason despite finishing as the number-one seed in the NFC in the previous campaign. This was partly due to the loss of wide receiver Davante Adams, and Rodgers appeared frustrated throughout the season.
Despite this, he is still regarded as one of the greats, and it is likely that he will see out the remainder of his contract that was signed before the 2022 season. However, there have been hints that he may not stay with the Packers, given the interest from other teams.
Brady spoke positively about Rodgers, noting that he played tremendous football despite nursing an injured thumb throughout the season.
He also emphasized the importance of good players continuing to play and hoped that the next generation of players would have the necessary tools to do so. In the end, Brady’s advice to Rodgers was simple: “I hope he doesn’t retire… he’s one of the greats. So if he retires, it’ll be a sad day for the league.”
