Rodgers mentioned he would let the world find out about his resolution to play or retire in 2023 after rising from the delicate cocoon of enlightenment (endarkenment?). Which makes this video posted by former NFL vast receiver Brandon Marshall to his Instagram tonight actually awkward.
“So I needed to be the primary to say, ‘Salute to Aaron Rodgers for an exceptional profession.’ You’re one of many biggest,” Marshall tells the digicam. “Me personally?
