Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers has warned fans that he’s now in the twilight of his career.
The veteran quarterback in an NFL legend having been drafted way back in 2005.
He won Super Bowl XLV and remains one of the most popular figures in the sport.
However, time is starting to creep up on the 36-year-old and he’s claimed that retirement could come sooner rather than later.
“[I'm] seeing the 18th hole coming up, realizing I can't play forever,” Rodgers said.
“The opportunities don't come along all the time. I could feel the energy of this team early in April and May.

“It was different feel and that's what spurned [spurred] me in the summer to kind of forego some of the traveling I would maybe usually do and make sure I was dialed in once training camp came around because I felt like we could do something special this year.”
Despite is comments, Rodgers rolled back the years as the Packers destroyed the New York Giants last weekend.
The University of California graduate inspired an emphatic 31-13 triumph over Pat Shurmur’s dismal side.
In the aftermath of the match, safety Michael Thomas suggested Rodgers remains a force to be reckoned with.
“One of the best quarterbacks out there,” he said.
“And you’re talking about pure just arm talent, not like quarterback play, but just pure arm talent.
“He’s one of the best in the game, if not the best. Point blank. Period.”
Head coach Matt LaFleur hailed Rodgers’ stunning third-quarter touchdown throw to Geronimo Allison.
“Aaron hung in the pocket, and then drifted and was getting hit as he released that ball,” LaFleur said Monday.
“You don’t see many people that are physically capable of making that play."
