“The right situation… is that Green Bay or somewhere else? I’m not sure, but I don’t think you should rule out an opportunity.

But O’Hara, who spent 11 seasons in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns and New York Giants, believes Rodgers’ priorities are all wrong.

‘[He is] one of the best quarterbacks I’ve seen live and on TV,” he said Good morning football in a clip that was deleted from the show’s Twitter account after nearly an hour. “Aaron Rodgers, if he pulled out his wallet now, it would say ‘Bad MF’er on it.’

“The thing that makes me cringe [about] When I hear this interview it’s “Yes I think I can come back and win an MVP”. No! [It should be] “I want to win a Lombardi”. That’s the thing that makes me cringe.

“Aaron Rodgers, he will go down in history as one of the best quarterbacks to ever play this game. He respectfully made Packers fans forget about Brett Favre, but when you look at what he’s done, it’s incredible.

“Last season was an anomaly for me. Think about it: Aaron Rodgers hasn’t thrown for 300 yards this entire season. Not once. That’s pretty remarkable considering what he’s accomplished in his career. But for me this is a missed opportunity.

“MVPs are great, that’s great. But I’ve never heard a quarterback, a Hall of Famer quarterback, say, “Yeah, I’d really like to win an MVP.” No, it’s all about the trophy, the Lombardi. You play for the Packers! And Lombardi’s name is on this trophy.

Rodgers spent his entire 18-year career with the Packers but is now weighing his next move after a disappointing season.

Despite the 39-year-old only agreeing to a three-year extension worth $150 million in 2022, the 39-year-old’s future in Green Bay is now the subject of intense speculation ahead of next season and Rodgers says he needs time to establish his decision to reconsider.

“Look, I think you have a sense of where you’re headed, but there’s a lot of things that come into play,” he revealed. “I think just some on my side, it’s the physical part, it’s the emotional part, it’s the spiritual part. It’s the ability to go back out there and give 100 percent.

“It’s also the situation and where the team is and the focus that’s moving forward in the short term and the long term. Then it comes down to intuition and how it feels in your body and how it feels in your mind.

“Once you commit, you commit. You keep going no matter what the decision, so you know I just need some time right now. I don’t have to ask anyone to respect my time or whatever. That will be the answer until I’m ready, and when I’m ready to speak my mind like I was last year, I’m either all in or I’m out.
