It's seemingly impossible for diehard NFL fans, let alone Wisconsin devotees, to picture Aaron Rodgers in anything but the Green Bay Packers' iconic green and yellow threads.

But according to team insider Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, Rodgers' current contract with the organization may end up being his last, meaning that the lifelong Packer could end up finishing his career outside of Green Bay.

Given the likelihood that the Packers are starting to consider finding Rodgers' successor, Schneidman notes that he wouldn't be surprised if the franchise spent a first-round pick on a quarterback in 2021.

With two years remaining on his former deal, Rodgers signed a four-year, $134 million contract extension with Green Bay prior to the 2018 season. After turning 36 in December, the eight-time Pro Bowler would be set through his age-40 season.

Rodgers is obviously talented enough to play well into his 40s, but would the Packers really want to take their chances on a rapidly declining and brittle signal caller? No way.

There's still plenty of time left in the Rodgers era, but it's impossible to deny the weirdness of thinking that he's likely playing on his last contract with the franchise that drafted him No. 24 overall back in 2005.
