Aaron Rodgers says he will stay with the Green Bay Packers

    Aaron Rodgers reached a deal with the Packers a month after winning the MVP.

    (CNN)National Football League quarterback Aaron Rodgers tweeted Tuesday that he plans to remain with the Green Bay Packers.

    His confirmation came after Pat McAfee, host of "The Pat McAfee Show," a show in which Rodgers regularly appears as a guest, said he will stay with the team.
    McAfee said Rodgers told him, "Why don't you let the people know that I am officially returning to the Green Bay Packers."
      Several hours later, Rodgers tweeted that he wanted to "clear some things up."
        The quarterback stated, "YES I will be playing with the @packers next year, however, reports about me signing a contract are inaccurate, as are the supposed terms of the contract I "signed". I'm very excited to be back #year 18."
        NFL Network and NFL.com reporter Ian Rapoport had reported Rodgers and the team agreed to a four-year, $200 million extension."
        McAfee also disputed the terms cited by Rapoport.
          CNN has reached out to the Packers for comment.
          In February, the 38-year-old was named the league's Most Valuable Player (MVP) for the second straight year and the fourth time in his 17-year career.
          Speculation that Rodgers may retire grew after he won the MVP award, saying, "It's been an amazing 17 years. So thankful for the memories and the moments over the years."
          In recent months, Rodgers' off-the-field actions landed him in the news. He and Shailene Woodley ended their engagement in February, one year after Woodley announced the engagement to the public during an interview with Jimmy Fallon.
          Rodgers also made headlines for his thoughts on Covid-19 vaccinations. After admitting to testing positive in November, Rodgers missed the Week 9 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, which the Packers lost 13-7.
