Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' cryptic Instagram post last night generated a ton of reaction from those who tried to interpret its meaning.

One photo in particular drew significant attention. It was a picture of Rodgers' teammates, wide receivers Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, standing on the field for the national anthem before a game against the Kansas City Chiefs this past season.

Because he couldn't play that day due to COVID-19, Rodgers was not in between Adams and Cobb, as he usually is before every game. During an appearance on "The Pat McAfee Show" today, Rodgers admitted the picture had a special significance for him.

Rodgers also revealed that when Adams and Cobb sent him that photo following the game in Kansas City, he cried.

While this is a heartwarming tidbit of information, it's not the big news many were hoping for from Rodgers' segment with McAfee. There was some speculation that he might be sharing his plans for next season during the show, but that was not to be. "Let me just put this disclaimer out right away. There will be no news today, no decision on my future," Rodgers said.

We're going to have to wait a little longer to get some clarity on Rodgers' future.
