Aaron Rodgers says that he was seriously considering retirement.

During a recent interview, the Green Bay Packers quarterback said that he was “50/50” on retirement the weekend before reporting to training camp. Ultimately, Rodgers and the Packers were able to come to an agreement that allowed him to return to the team.

Rodgers discussed his mindset during an appearance on the Dan Le Batard & Friends podcast.

“I mean, I felt going into the weekend before camp that I was 50/50,” Rodgers said, via Jordan Dajani of CBS Sports. “I don’t care if people don’t believe that. That’s true. There were some things that got me to 50/50 for sure, and you know I spent a couple of days in silence and meditation and contemplation and really felt like that I should come back. There’s a lot of opportunities for growth and exciting things in Green Bay and that felt like the right thing to do.”

Whether Rodgers remains with the Packers past this season remains to be seen, but for now, they can move forward with the 2021 campaign knowing they have the reigning league MVP under center.

Rodgers and the Packers officially kick off their 2021 campaign on Sunday, September 12 against the New Orleans Saints. Kickoff at the Superdome is set for 4:25 p.m. ET on FOX.
