Aaron Rodgers told reporters Tuesday he will "definitely" end his career with the Green Bay Packers.

The quarterback also said he is taking it year by year when considering retirement.

Rodgers agreed to a four-year, $200 million extension in March, securing his future with the team after years of uncertainty.

The 38-year-old has spent his entire career in Green Bay, although the partnership seemed to be coming to an end when the team used its first-round draft pick in 2020 on quarterback Jordan Love.

The next offseason, Rodgers reportedly wanted to be traded and skipped the Packers' offseason programs before returning for training camp.

Even after winning his second straight MVP award last season, the quarterback was unsure about his future in Green Bay.

"I'm gonna take some time and have conversations with the folks around here, and then take some time away and make a decision—obviously before free agency," Rodgers said after the Packers' divisional-round playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Now he says he doesn't want to play for any other team, although it's unclear how long he will play.

Rodgers discussed retirement with reporters Tuesday:

Aaron Rodgers: “This is my 18th season. Of course you think about the next chapter and what’s next in your life all the time. It doesn’t mean you’re not fully invested.” <a href="https://t.co/bjtZM4yOd3">pic.twitter.com/bjtZM4yOd3</a>

He also said earlier this month that he "can definitely see the end coming."

The 10-time Pro Bowler will at least be on the field in 2022 as he looks to bring home his second Super Bowl title.
