Aaron Rodgers still has a good six or seven years of QB work left in him, but that doesn't mean he's not already planning for the future.
Appearing on former Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk's podcast, "The Hawkcast", Rodgers talked about his future beyond football, and has an interesting career path in mind for when that day comes. SPOILER: It does not involve continuously retiring and unretiring like a certain former Packers QB.
After his football career is all said and done, Rodgers hopes to begin making documentaries for the world to enjoy. Yup, he's dead serious. Aaron explained the odd choice, saying:
“I just want to continue to learn. I have plenty of charitable endeavors that’ll keep me busy and plenty of business ventures that’ll keep me busy, but I’m going to have to find a way to fill that competitive void when [football] is done, and I don’t think it’s going to be playing in an over-35 basketball league or making a run at the Senior Tour, which every golfer believes they can do.
Being able to be around Olivia the last couple years, beginning to see her world, that world is really interesting to me. I’m a fan of documentaries, and to be able to be a part of a group that’s bringing awareness to subjects that don’t get a lot of attention at times [is appealing]. I enjoy the TV program VICE, because they tackle some really interesting issues. To be a part of something like that would be really interesting.”
So don't expect to see Rodgers in any coaching roles or commentary booths when he calls it a career. Expect to see his name at the box office instead.
