As fans waited on Aaron Rodgers to make a decision between staying with the Green Bay Packers or requesting a trade to the New York Jets, his tweet on Tuesday gave no information but only added more confusion and left many speculating about his next move…even retirement.
Aaron Rodgers has been one of the greatest topics of the NFL offseason so far and, with the beginning of free agency quickly approaching, the quarterback’s next move could already be decided, or so many think.
Talking with former Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall on the ‘I AM ATHLETE’ podcast, he spoke on his future and whether it was away from the Green Bay Packers, and was also quizzed about his meeting with Jets owner Woody Johnson.
“All the answers are right inside me,” Aaron Rodgers said after his time at the retreat. “I touched many of them, and definitely the feelings, on both sides, during the darkness, and I’m thankful for that time.
“There’s a finality to the decision. I don’t make it lightly. I don’t want to drag anybody around. Look, I’m answering questions about it because I get asked about it. I’m talking about it because it’s important to me.”
Aaron Rodgers has been with the Green Bay Packers for 18 seasons, and despite some setbacks from the team, he won he Super Bowl once and had extremely high levels of personal success, ranking first in franchise history in passing touchdowns and second in passing yards.
“He’s obviously a great player. Four-time MVP. But I think it’s trying to find what he wants and what we want, and hopefully, we can find a win-win situation,” Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy said.
Aaron Rodgers Tweet As Jets & Green Bay Packers Hang On
After fans waited for Aaron Rodgers to say something about his next move between Jets and Packers, the quarterback left them more confused when all he had to say on Twitter was “SULLLLLL”, with two emojis crying out of sheer laughter.
What does the Aaron Rodgers tweet mean?
Some say that he was referring to the hero pilot Sully Sullenberger and just omitted the “Y.” Sullenberger had famously crash-landed a plane in the middle of the Hudson River without losing any passengers. And the Hudson River is located in New York.
So therefore he was talking about the Jets?
The dictionary shows that “Sull” when used as a noun means “plow.” When used as an intransitive verb it means “to be sullen.”
So maybe he’s getting into farming…or he’s in a bad mood.
At this point, trying to make sense of Rodgers is probably giving more trouble, especially because he’s done his fair share of trolling.
Rodgers will eventually have to make a decision on his NFL future, whether it’s to retire, go back to Green Bay or request a trade and go to the Jets.
