‘Comfortable and Enjoying Family Life’: Rodgers Explains Decision
Former NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, 38, has decided to join the CBS studio instead of pursuing offers from teams to continue his football career. In an interview with Fox News Digital, Rodgers revealed that although his agent received calls with quarterback offers, he felt content with his role at CBS.
Rodgers, the 2016 NFL MVP who played the 2022 season with the Indianapolis Colts, expressed his satisfaction with his work at CBS. He stated, “To me, I was comfortable with what I was doing for CBS. I really enjoyed that part of it this fall. It’s right where my family’s at and family life and those kind of things.”
The former athlete acknowledged the lingering desire to play football but recognized that pursuing a broadcasting career made the most sense for him at this point. He emphasized, “It never got too serious. For me, I really had a blast doing what I was doing this year.”
Advocating for ALS Cure
During his interview at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Rodgers also discussed his involvement in raising awareness about the 10th anniversary of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. He highlighted the personal connection to the cause, as his friend Pete Frates, who passed away in 2019, suffered from ALS and was credited with starting the viral challenge.
Rodgers emphasized the importance of continuing efforts to find a cure for ALS, stating, “Just out here today to continue to remind people that progress needs to be made in fighting ALS.”
Through the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, hundreds of millions of dollars have been raised in hopes of finding a cure for this debilitating disease.
