Aaron Rodgers walks to the beat of his own drum.

Sometimes that drum is imaginary. Sometimes the beat may just be in his head. But all things considered, it’s hard to argue the results for Rodgers.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback is four-time NFL MVP. He’s won a Super Bowl, and he’s a stone cold lock to enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame as soon as he becomes eligible.

But for now, Rodgers isn’t quite done playing forward.

The 39-year-old has spent his entire 18-year NFL career in Green Bay. Though that appears as if it’s set to end. After perhaps the worst season of his illustrious career, the Packers appear ready to move on from Rodgers.

Where he’ll end up, nobody knows. But Rodgers will likely have a lot of say in that destination. Before he does so, however, he’s got some self-reflection to do.

Which is why he spent four days and four nights on “darkness retreat” inside of a cave in Southern Oregon. No light. No phones. Just vibes.

Now, however, it appears that retreat is over and it’s time for Rodgers to emerge into the wild.

Xuan Thai of ESPN reports that Rodgers’ retreat ended on Wednesday.

Aaron Rodgers has emerged from his darkness retreat, according to the owner of the facility in southern Oregon where the Green Bay Packers quarterback spent the past several days and nights.

Scott Berman, who owns Sky Cave Retreats, said Rodgers left the dark room and the facility Wednesday.

Before entering the retreat, Rodgers said on “The Pat McAfee Show” on Feb. 14 that he had scheduled four days and four nights in darkness isolation and was hoping to “have a better sense of where I’m at in my life.” Rodgers said he was not going to the retreat just to figure out whether he will play in 2023 or retire. – via ESPN

Did Rodgers find the answers he was looking for? Does he now know the meaning of life? Whomst can say?! B

But it appears it’s back to football for now for the gunslinger.
