Aaron Rodgers is relentlessly closing in on a Tom Brady-like NFL future
The Green Bay Packers quarterback wondered how much longer he would play football. Aaron Rodger’s answer was short and sweet.
No player in NFL history has thrown more yards than the current one Tampa Bay Buccaneers‘-Quarterback Tom Brady (84,520). In terms of active players, Matt Ryan (59,735), the Indianapolis Colts’ new signal caller, is second on the list. He is followed by the successful passer Aaron Rodgers (55,360). Green Bay packers.
When it comes to career touchdown passes, Brady is the all-time all-time leading league player with an incredible 624 scoring tosses. In 2021, he led the entire NFL with 43 touchdown tosses. Meanwhile, Rodgers is fifth on the list — behind Drew Brees (571) and Pro Football Hall of Famers Peyton Manning (539) and Brett Favre (508) — with 449 TD shots.
It’s safe to say that Aaron Rodgers would have to come up with some incredible numbers to catch the seven-time Super Bowl champion on those lists. And that’s when Brady decided to retire from the game.
Well, it is now certain that neither will happen. Brady celebrated his 45th birthday on Wednesday, August 3rd. He’s gearing up for his 23rd NFL season. So when someone asked Aaron Rodgers if he planned to play until he was 45, the answer was short and sweet.
“No,” a smiling Rodgers said (via Zach Kruse from PackersWire.com). “But happy birthday, Tom!”
Rodgers turns 39 on December 2nd. The ten-time Pro Bowler has won his third and fourth NFL MVP awards in the past two years. But he apparently has no intention of playing until December 2028 when he hits the BIG 45.
That 17-year-old quarterback has thrown 449 touchdown passes, compared to just 93 interceptions in 213 regular-season games since 2005. Perhaps a more interesting question would be this one. When will Aaron Rodgers finally throw his 100th regular-season interception?
