At 38 years old Aaron Rogers He is the second oldest active quarterback in the NFL. But he says that he will never be able to play as long as the oldest.
Tom Brady Turning 45 this week, Rodgers was asked if he considers himself still playing at 45. Rogers answered definitively: “No, I don’t know.”
“But happy birthday, Tom,” Rogers added.
This is not exactly big news, considering that hardly anyone is still playing at the age of 45. Only eight other players in NFL history have played past the age of 45, and none of them have played at Brady’s level. Rodgers playing at 45 is highly unlikely, and for the same reasons, it is highly unlikely that anyone will continue to play professional football at 45.
But Rogers’ final answer is another reminder that all great careers come to an end, and Rogers’ career will come to an end sooner rather than later.
