When it comes to opinions on which uniform Aaron Rodgers will be wearing in the 2021 season, the takes have been coming in fast.

The latest comes from all-time great Peyton Manning, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame later this summer.

"When I think of Aaron, I think of him as a Green Bay Packer ...," Manning said to TMZ.com. "Hopefully, they can get it worked out. I look forward to seeing him play this year somewhere."

It is rare that one player plays for one team his whole career, as Manning can attest. Manning spent his first 13 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, before moving on to the Denver Broncos to finish his career.

"Aaron doesn't need advice from me," Manning said. "He'll make a good decision. ... We'll see how it plays out. He's done such a great job in Green Bay. I think every player, their goal is to stay in one team the entire time if they can. Obviously, Tom (Brady) made a move."

Rodgers' issue with the Packers comes from the fact that Green Bay selected Jordan Love in the first round in the 2020 NFL Draft.

It remains to be seen who will be under center for Green Bay when it opens the 2021 campaign on the road against the New Orleans Saints on Sept. 12.
