Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Returns From Darkness Retreat

He has emerged.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has recently completed a darkness retreat at the Sky Cave Retreats in southern Oregon.

The retreat is a self-reflective experience where guests spend several days in a room devoid of natural light.

Normally, this wouldn't exactly be newsworthy, however, Rodgers said he hopes to have a decision regarding his playing future after the conclusion of the retreat.

There are conflicting reports circulating that the Green Bay Packers want to move on from the four-time NFL MVP and that they want to keep him. In addition, other teams, including the Las Vegas Raiders and New York Jets, are interested in acquiring him.

Rodgers has maintained that he is undecided about his football future, but he hopes that the retreat will help him make a final decision.

The room where Rodgers stayed was described as a partially underground, Hobbit-like structure with 300 square feet of space, and had a queen bed, a bathroom, and a meditation-like mat. While there were no rules for remaining in complete darkness, the room had electricity and lights that could be turned on at any time.

Rodgers is set to earn $59.5 million in guaranteed money in 2023 and $49.25 million in 2024, and retirement remains an option for the 39-year-old quarterback.

We await his decision.
