Aaron Rodgers may have emerged from his retreat in the dark last week, but his future in the NFL is still unclear.

Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst spoke to reporters Tuesday and revealed that he and Rodgers haven’t connected this offseason beyond exchanging a few text messages.

«He’s a great player, but until we have those conversations, I think all options are on the table right now,» Gutekunst said at the NFL Combine when asked if he wanted Rodgers back for the 2023 season, according to ESPN. «But we really need to have those conversations. We want what’s best for the Green Bay Packers, which is best for Aaron. So, we’ll get to that once those talks happen.»

Rodgers emerged last week from four days in isolation that the four-time MVP said was «contemplating all things, my future, and then making a decision that I feel is best in moving forward and in the best interest of my happiness.»

While Rodgers is still under contract with the Packers, his future in Green Bay is highly in doubt as NFL teams prepare for the possibility of rodgers available via trade.

«Certainly before free agency, I think that would be nice,» Gutekunst said. «I don’t know if there is something firm, but I think it would be useful for our soccer team.»

Rodgers’ decision will have a big impact on Green Bay’s other quarterback, Jordan Love.

Gutekunst spoke about Love on Tuesday, saying he thinks the young quarterback is ready for more reps.

«He definitely needs to play,» Gutekunst said. «I think that’s the next step in his progression. I think he’s ready for that. Not every quarterback comes into this league ready to go out and play. I think he needed a little bit of time, but over the last year and a half or so, we’ve seen that’s the next step in his progression. He needs to go out there and play.»
