Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb, visibly emotional, walked off the Lambeau Field after the Green Bay Packers’ loss vs the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The Packers were knocked out of the playoffs.
With Rodgers and co out, the Seattle Seahawks will take the No 7 seed and play the San Francisco 49ers.
Rodgers sparked some speculation around his retirement after he refused to swap his jersey with a Detroit Lions wide receiver. When the request was made, the 39-year-old said,” I think I’m gonna hold onto this one.”
Aaron Rodgers, four-time NFL MVP, was selected in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Packers. He has been the team’s mainstay since. He has more than 55053 passing yards for the team for 449 touchdowns.
Randall Cobb was acquired by Green Bay in a trade with the Houston Texans in July 2021. He spent one season in Houston after representing the Dallas Cowboys in 2019. However, the WR started his career with the Packers. He played eight seasons for the Wisconsin-based outfit.
The two walked off the field, into the tunnel together.
“Aaron rodgers will never play another game in a packers uniform. Kept his Jersey, holding on to Cobb like his girlfriend in front of the cameras and tearing up looking around the field. Later dude,” a Twitter user said.
“If this is it… I thank these two players for everything they have given this franchise and fanbase. No matter what, this is something that will always be special to the Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb, Thank you for another wild season,” another one added.
“An emotional walk into the tunnel for longtime teammates Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb,” a third one said.
