Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported earlier that the Packers might end up shutting Aaron Rodgers down for the season if they end not having a chance to make the playoffs.
Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin reached out to Rodgers.
Told of the report, Rodgers said in an iMessage, “I don’t plan on playing ’til I’m 30.” Rodgers’ 30th birthday is Monday.
Rodgers also said that he has not been examined since before Thanksgiving. The Packers players have been off since Thursday and have scattered about the country.
Wilde asked Rodgers if he would be shut down if they end up not having a chance to make the playoffs.
“No. It’s not my personality. I don’t want to do that.”
