Aaron Rodgers will be buckling down to business with reports that the Super Bowl MVP is in Green Bay this week for mandatory minicamp.

According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the 38-year-old quarterback will hold mandatory minicamp starting Tuesday, June 7, that will last until Thursday, June. 9.

After this, the Packers will revert to the voluntarily organized team activities next week as they close out their early offseason schedule.

Rodgers inked a $150 million contract in the offseason, a deal that would pay him for the next three years. He returns to Lambeau Field with the four-time NFL MVP getting the chance to work out with their new group of receivers.

That list includes Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs and free-agent acquisition Sammy Watkins.

Rodgers will have to get used to the new faces with Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling no longer around.

Adams was traded to the Las Vegas Raiders in March in exchange for first (no. 22 overall) and second-round picks (no. 53 overall) in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Hence, the 38-year-old will have to get acquainted with the core of the new receiver if the Packers have plans of making it back to the postseason.

During last week’s golf match with Tom Brady, Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes, Rodgers mentioned that retirement has crossed his mind a lot of times. At his age, there is no telling when that may come.

"I think about (retirement) all the time," Rodgers said during a quarterback roundtable with TNT. "And I resonate with what Tom [Brady] said about the mindset of 55-45 (percentage of wanting to play). When you commit, you're 100%."

Also, Rodgers compared his situation to Brady who initially retired and then unretired at the age of 45.

"The older you get, the interests change and the grind, I think, wears on you a little bit more, and the football part, that's the easy part. That's the joy," Rodgers quipped.
