GREEN BAY, Wis. (TMJ4/AP) — All-Pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers says that “I don’t think there’s any reason why I wouldn’t be back” with the Green Bay Packers next season.

But he added during his weekly spot on SiriusXM Radio's “The Pat McAfee Show” that his future isn’t necessarily in his control.

"I'm not like jetting out of town and you know, sayonara Green Bay!" Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers says. "Like, there are conversations to be had. I'm going to have them, with the right people. But it's the same conversations we have every single year. You know, there's nothing, you know, there's no like big you know, I'm going to come to the table with, you know, I need this and this and this. Like, look, we have honest conversations about where we're at, every single year. And whether that's with Brian, Matt, Mark, I've had these conversations for years. I think it's part of like being a leader on the squad and having a pulse of the team."

Let's face it. The Packers would be crazy to get rid of the man who should be named MVP next week, and only gain around $5 million in salary-cap room if they parted ways now.

Rodgers was clarifying remarks he made Sunday after the Packers’ 31-26 NFC championship game loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Rodgers said after the game that “there’s a lot of guys’ futures that are uncertain, myself included.”
