By far the most talked-about topic this NFL offseason is Aaron Rodgers and his future in Green Bay. Rodgers has made it clear that he’s unhappy with the organization while rumors suggest that some of his coaches and teammates dislike Rodgers and his ‘selfish’ behavior.

While Rodgers’ situation in Green Bay has been the dominating NFL headline for months now, we haven’t heard much at all from the QB himself.

We haven’t even seen too much of Rodgers this offseason, let alone hear from him. He made an appearance at the Kentucky Derby with fiancée Shailene Woodly and looked to be having a great time with her and actor Miles Teller in some waterfalls, but other than that it’s been crickets from Rodgers.

For the first time since a brief interview with ESPN last month, Rodgers has finally opened up about his future in Green Bay. Well, sort of.

Rodgers told the Associated Press that he’s just been focusing on himself this offseason while not looking to be “the loudest person in the room.”

“Sometimes, the loudest person in the room is not the smartest person. Sometimes the loudest person in the room is not the person who has all the facts on their side or the truth on their side,” Rodgers said. “Sometimes there’s a lot of wisdom in silence. Sometimes there’s a lot of wisdom in being selective on what you say. This offseason I’ve spent a lot of time working on myself.”

“The mental side of it is so important for all of us athletes. I don’t think it’s talked about enough. But taking time to work on yourself is, I think, the best gift any of us can give ourselves.”

Does this tell us anything about Rodgers’ future with the Packers or lack thereof? Nope, not at all, but at least it’s something.

Maybe he’ll drop a few hints about his future during ‘The Match’ with Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau, and Tom Brady.
