Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur says he's "lucky" to work with quarterback Aaron Rodgers and doesn't expect his good fortune to end in the foreseeable future.

"Right now, Aaron is our QB, and I see him here for a really long time. How long that is nobody knows," LaFleur said Sunday, according to Mike Clemens of SiriusXM NFL Radio. "Nothing is guaranteed in the NFL. But I feel so lucky to be able to work with him on a daily basis and I don't see that changing for a really long time."

Ahead of Rodgers' age-37 campaign, the Packers traded up in the first round of the 2020 draft to select quarterback Jordan Love at No. 26. The future Hall of Famer was surprised by Green Bay's decision and recently said he expects to finish his career elsewhere.

LaFleur was hired in January 2019 to replace Mike McCarthy, and the 40-year-old led Green Bay to the NFC Championship Game after posting a 13-3 record during the regular season.

Rodgers wasn't able to replicate his past success in his first year with the offensive-minded LaFleur, however, as the eight-time Pro Bowler completed 62% of his pass attempts for 4,002 yards and 26 touchdowns. After leading the NFL with 40 touchdown passes in 2016, Rodgers has now failed to throw 30 TDs in each of his last three seasons.
