Aaron Rodgers insists he will not drag out any decision on whether to remain at the Green Bay Packers for another season.

Rodgers' future with the Packers had been in significant doubt ahead of the current NFL season following reports he had told some within the organisation that he did not wish to return to Green Bay.

The subsequent staring contest between the two parties cast a shadow over the Packers' offseason.

However, Rodgers and the Packers finally found common ground, and the 38-year-old has enjoyed a fine season so far.

At 110.8, his passer rating is five points ahead of anyone else in the league among qualified passers.

He is tied for fourth in the league with 33 TD passes, despite missing one game, and his four total interceptions are the fewest.

He also surpassed Packers legend Brett Favre for passing touchdowns in the Christmas Day win against the Cleveland Browns.

Rodgers reached 445 career touchdown passes by the end of the 24-22 victory, beating Favre's haul of 442 for Green Bay.

It appears Rodgers has yet to make up his mind on what next season holds for him, but he said on Wednesday that any decision will be made swiftly.

"It won't be something where I'll drag it out for months and months," he told a media conference.

"I'm not going to hold the team back from anything. And once I commit – and if it's committing to move forward here – it will be a quick decision.

"This has been one of my favourite years of football. I think that I'm just enjoying this season for this season and I think playing next year will definitely be in the thought process.

"One of the things that obviously [I want is] to not be a bum on the way out and to still be able to play. That's important to me.

"If this year has taught me anything, it's that I still can play, I still have a love for the game, I'm still super competitive and still enjoy the process of the week."
