Aaron Rodgers made sure everyone knew he went into a darkness retreat before he did so. And now that he’s out, there are reports about what the experience was like for him.
A new piece by ESPN has detailed the Sky Cave facility that Rodgers checked into earlier this week before completing the retreat on Wednesday.
According to the report, Rodgers has spent the last few days in “a partially underground, Hobbit-like structure with 300 square feet of space, devoid of light, with a queen bed, a bathroom, and a meditation-like mat on the floor.” The room, however, was fully powered, which means Rodgers could turn on the lights anytime he wanted to.
Prior to the retreat, the 39-year-old Rodgers — who signed a three-year, $150 million contract with the Green Bay Packers last offseason — said he hoped to “have a better sense of where he’s at in life.”
Now that Rodgers has taken to the darkness to help decide whether or not he wants to continue playing quarterback for millions of dollars in the National Football League, perhaps some of the quarterback dominos of the offseason will begin to fall.
At this time, Rodgers’ options seem to be slimmer than ever, as reports seem to indicate that the Packers have reached a breaking point with his antics.
“They’re disgusted with him, and they’re done with him. And they’re moving on,” veteran sportswriter Bob McGinn said while on the Tyler Dunne Go Long podcast.
Other potential landing spots for Rodgers are the New York Jets — who met with free agent signal caller Derek Carr over the weekend — and the Las Vegas Raiders, who are in need of a QB following Carr’s departure.
