Making a regular appearance on former NFL punter Pat McAfee's talk show Tuesday, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he has no reason to think he won't be back with the Packers next season.

"I don't think that there's any reason why I wouldn't be back," Rodgers said on 'The Pat McAfee Show.' "But look - as you guys know - there's not many absolutes in this business."

Rodgers was referencing a comment he made following Sunday's NFC Championship, which largely opened up speculation about his future with the Packers.

"There's a lot of guys futures that are uncertain," he said just moments after the game, still emotional from the loss. "Myself included."

Ever since the Packers drafted quarterback Jordan Love in the first round of the NFL Draft last April, Rodgers has been open about the "uncertainty" of his future in Green Bay. The week leading up to the NFC Championship, he called his future a "beautiful mystery."

"I don't feel like I said anything that I hadn't said before," Rodgers said Tuesday, in his first public comments since the moments following Sunday's season-ending loss.

"I was thinking about Aaron Jones and Corey Linsley and 'Big Dog' (tight end Marcedes Lewis). Guys that - I don't know what their future is going to be and myself included."
