What does the future for Aaron Rodgers hold? We’ll see. The Denver Broncos may not be tripping over themselves to force Green Bay Packers general manager into a trade, but they are certainly paying close attention to the things Rodgers says and does.

Speaking of that, Rodgers has been out on the golf course for charity at The Match in beautiful Montana, yucking it up with Tom Brady and getting asked questions about his future, specifically as it relates to his future with the Green Bay Packers.

When asked about his future with the Packers directly by TNT’s Brian Anderson, Rodgers responded:

“Yeah, I don’t know, BA, we’ll see. We’ll see, won’t we?”

The commentators on The Match didn’t want to interrogate Rodgers, but they did press in a little bit more. After being asked if Rodgers would be playing QB for the Packers when they take on the Chicago Bears, specifically, the MVP was then asked about September 12 and whether he would “go for that one” and Rodgers acted like he had no clue what they were talking about.

September 12 is when the Packers open the 2021 season on the road against the New Orleans Saints.

Denver Broncos: Aaron Rodgers noncommittal on future with Packers

It was a total sidestep by Rodgers, and if you’re a “glass-half-full” Packers fan, Rodgers could have just flat out said no, couldn’t he?

He didn’t flat out say no, he said we’ll see.

If you’re a glass-half-empty Packers fan (or a Denver Broncos fan), you heard that Rodgers didn’t just say yes either.

He could have just said yes. He didn’t.

Brian Anderson, who was the one asking Rodgers the questions about his very near future with the Packers (or not), is a color commentator for the Milwaukee Brewers. He may not have any direct ties to Rodgers, but he has a unique understanding of Rodgers’ situation.

Prior to The Match, Anderson made these comments to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"He knows what he wants to deliver publicly and he knows what he wants to keep private; it doesn’t matter what I ask him. What I’m not going to do is turn it into an interrogation; this is not a sit-down interview for information for the Green Bay Packers. My job specifically is not to pry information out of people, especially info they’re not prepared to deliver yet … but remember, I’ll be sitting with Charles Barkley. I think all bets are off on any rules or any etiquette when it comes to Charles Barkley.TNT’s Brian Anderson (via MJS)"

Anderson is absolutely right.

Rodgers has been calculated all along about what he wanted to be leaked to the public, when he wanted it to be leaked, and how he wanted it to be leaked.

For now, the Denver Broncos will just have to sit back and wait. It’s certainly notable anytime Rodgers talks publicly, especially now that we are in the final few weeks leading up to training camp.

Will anything happen before then?

“We’ll see.”
