Brett Favre served as the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers for nearly two decades until he decided to retire (and un-retired a couple thousand times). Aaron Rodgers sat on the bench for three years, waiting for the day until the gunslinger hung it up.
Since 2008, Rodgers has shown himself as one of the best — if not the best — quarterbacks in the NFL. He has so far spent eight seasons with the team, and he hopes to last as long as Favre in a Green Bay uniform.
“I’ve had eight great years there, the last five as a starter,” Rodgers told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “Hopefully I can give them another eight plus years of playing at a high level.”
Rodgers’ contract expires in two years, so a new deal would have to be worked if he wants to play eight more years. With Rodgers wanting to play at least eight more seasons, that would last him in the NFL until 2020. By that time, Rodgers will be 37-years-old.
What Rodgers would have to worry about is extending his deal in two years.
“We’ll see what happens with that, I’m not stressing about it,” he said. “I think the Packers would like me to be around for a few more years and I’d love to finish my career there.”
Rodgers has already shown the potential that has career can pan out much better than Favre’s. Now we can say there is a good chance of the length as well.
