Quarterback Aaron Rodgers showed with this shot, which he took in the American Century Championship on Saturday, that he can start the PGA Tour very well.
Aaron Rodgers’ status for the 2021 NFL season is uncertain due to the reported deterioration in its relationship with the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers spent some time on the golf course last week, where he and Bryson DeChambeau defeated Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson in “The Match.” Rodgers returned to the green for the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship this weekend and the success of his win earlier this week has been carried over.
On Saturday, Rodgers took an impressive chip shot on the 11th hole that showed he could leave the NFL for the PGA Tour if he wanted.
Aaron Rodgers hits a formidable shot during the American Century Championship
Calm down, Packers fans. We children, of course. Rodgers has just had an NFL MVP season, but he’s shown he’s damn good at this golf thing.
Whether Rodgers will play in the 2021 season is still open. During “The Match” last Tuesday, Rodgers gave vague answers when asked if he would play for the Packers next season. Specifically, Rodgers said, “We’ll see, won’t we?”
During the American Century Championship on Saturday, the signal caller said in an interview with NBC Sports that he would “find out about things in a couple of weeks.” You can listen to his full comments in the following tweet:

Rodgers did not report to any of the organized team activities or the mandatory Green Bay mini camp. He hasn’t made up his mind to cancel the 2021 season until July 2nd, so it’s a question of whether he’ll be returning to play for the Packers or snapshots somewhere below the middle.
As Rodgers says he’ll “figure things out in a couple of weeks,” all eyes will be on their social media feeds to see what the official response will be as training camp approaches.
