Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game of football. However, he is certainly someone who has a bit of an interesting way of going about things. Overall, his "free thinking" ways have given him a similar reputation to that of Kyrie Irving. Despite this, Rodgers has remained true to himself and is strong in his convictions. He is always speaking his mind, and he does not hold back when something rubs him the wrong way. For better or for worse, he is 100 percent himself at all times.

Recently, Rodgers was laughed at by the NFL community for his revelation that he would be going to a darkness retreat. Essentially, he would be spending a few days in the dark and during this time, he would contemplate his NFL future. Consequently, fans had a whole bunch of questions about this "darkness retreat." After all, the entire concept of it seems pretty ridiculous. However, Rodgers was ready to take it seriously, and now, the experience seems to be over.

Aaron Rodgers Is Back

According to reporter Xuan Thai of ESPN, Rodgers had been in the darkness retreat for the past few days. Although, it has since been revealed by the owner of the property that he has left. Interestingly enough, this darkness facility is quite the place. As Adam Schefter laid out in the tweet above, there was 300 square feet of space where Rodgers was staying. Moreover, Rodgers was left with no light sources or technology of any kind. Thankfully, he did have a bed and a bathroom, with a mat for meditation purposes, for good measure. For now, though, we do not know how Rodgers felt about the experience. We're sure he will tell Pat McAfee, soon enough.

This should lead to some interesting results for Rodgers and the Packers. The team is prepared to trade him anywhere should he decide he wants to leave. For now, teams like the New York Jets and Las Vegas Raiders seem to be in the running for the QB. This is a developing story, so stay tuned to HNHH for the latest news and updates. Additionally, let us know what you think of all of this, in the comments down below.
