Aaron Rodgers running out of the Lambeau Field visiting locker room is something Green Bay Packers fans never thought they would see.

Well, now it has become a very real possibility.

The Packers traded Rodgers to the New York Jets this offseason. Rodgers has recently contemplated retirement, even telling the Pat McAfee Show he was 90% retired before the trade to New York.

However, recent comments suggest his stay in the Big Apple could extend beyond this season. Rodgers spoke to ESPN 98.7 FM in New York, and he was asked about his future with the Jets.

Rodgers said: "Most people would say 'I'm taking this one day at a time or one year at a time,' but the Jets gave up a lot for me, so to just play one year, I think, would be a disservice. Now, if that one year turns out to be a magical year, who knows?"

This comes after Jets head coach Robert Saleh said he would be "shocked" if Rodgers didn't play beyond this season.

So, why is this relevant for the Packers? A potential 2024 matchup is why.

Aaron Rodgers revenge game vs. Packers at Lambeau Field becomes more likely

If Rodgers plays next season, there is a possibility he will travel to Lambeau Field to take on the Packers.

Green Bay will host one team from the AFC East in 2024. That means one of the Jets, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, or New England Patriots is coming to Lambeau Field -- whichever team finishes in the same position in their division as the Packers in the NFC North.

It's unlikely the Packers will win the division this season. You could argue the Jets aren't favorites to take the AFC East, either.

Second place for both teams? That's entirely possible.

There is a solid chance the Jets will visit Lambeau Field in 2024. If Rodgers does indeed play multiple seasons in New York, a return to Green Bay could be on the horizon.
