It's no secret that before this season, Aaron Rodgers was always a bit more reserved.

He never said too much to the media, whether it was after games or during the week in preparation for games. This season, he's gone onto the Pat McAfee Show on Tuesdays and touched on almost everything.

Rodgers spoke to Kay Adams of NFL Network and confirmed that he was tired of being quiet about his personal life.

"For a long time, I think I was a little bit more of an enigma because I was quiet about my personal life," Rodgers said. "At some point, enough is enough. I'm going to use my platform to speak more candidly and set the record straight on things that need to be straightened out. It's caring about the things that are important and my narrative is important."

Rodgers also confirmed that he's not sure what's next for him after this season.

"I don't. I feel like I want to know what it feels like at 0's in our last game. Last year, going through the offseason the way I did and taking time away, it definitely took away the fear of the unknown about what retirement looks like."

The Packers are looking to get back to the NFC Championship Game where they lost last year and get to their first Super Bowl since 2011.

Kickoff against the 49ers will be at 8:15 p.m. ET.
