Reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers is so disgruntled with the Green Bay Packers that he has told some within the organization that he does not want to return to the team, league and team sources told ESPN on Thursday.

The Packers are aware of his feelings, concerned about them and have had team president Mark Murphy, general manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach Matt LaFleur each fly out on separate trips to meet with Rodgers at various points this offseason, sources told ESPN.

"As we've stated since the season ended, we are committed to Aaron in 2021 and beyond," Gutekunst told ESPN. "Aaron has been a vital part of our success and we look forward to competing for another championship with him leading our team."

Rodgers has not budged this offseason, but neither have the Packers, who have made it known they are not interested in trading Rodgers anywhere.

The San Francisco 49ers called the Packers on Wednesday night, a source told ESPN, and the Los Angeles Rams inquired about Rodgers in January before they traded for Matthew Stafford.

The Packers quickly dismissed the Rams' overtures, the source said.

The Packers have offered to extend Rodgers' contract, sources told ESPN.

Rodgers is unhappy for a variety of reasons, with some of it dating back to last year's draft when the Packers didn't inform him before trading up to draft a quarterback with their first-round pick. Some took this as a sign that his days in Green Bay could he numbered.

He also is at a different point in his personal life, having recently gotten engaged to actress Shailene Woodley. Rodgers also has hosted "Jeopardy!" and said it would be a dream to become the full-time host. He could play football and host Jeopardy! together.

Rodgers has made cryptic comments about his future in Green Bay, but he has told others that he does not want to return.

On draft night, the Packers' biggest issue isn't who they land, but whether they can keep the former NFL MVP.

Rodgers' contract contained a $6.8 million roster bonus due in March. It could have been converted into a signing bonus that would have freed up more than $4.5 million in salary-cap space for this season but instead it "vested as scheduled," a source told ESPN at the time. It's listed as an automatic conversion in Rodgers' contract but even that has to be signed off on by both parties. It's not known if the Packers tried to convert and Rodgers refused to sign off on it, or if they did not attempt a conversion.

The @49ers have offered the @Packers the 3rd overall pick in this year's draft, plus other picks and a number of players from their current roster including Garoppolo
for Aaron Rodgers.
The Packers turned them down.
First reported by @PAOnTheMic and confirmed by others.

This is NOT true, I'm told by a source with direct knowledge.

Repeat NOT true. NO CALLS, per source. https://t.co/qelhNfH3R5

So he hated McCarthy, they got him a new coach, won MVP, and he's still pissy?

Rodgers is just a mental case. Dude is estranged from his own family isn't he?

He scared to play against Patrick. I understand since Patrick is the cheat code.

Trade him to the Jags for the #1 pick. Rodgers would own the AFC South.

He's annoyed that he's 37 and playing at an MVP level while his team is busy not signing any FAs and drafting guys that will never play.

This board would meltdown if Mahomes was 37 and playing that well and the team have him no help.

Rodgers comes across as one of the most miserable people in the NFL.

Really sad it didn’t work out with Danica. They were perfect for each other.

Pack doesn't need Jimmy G in that package.

The problem is that SF traded away all their draft picks because If they could offer #3 this year and a first rounder next year, I think GM does it especially with Jordan Love already in place.

Exactly. Never drafted a first round WR. And they drafted a backup QB and a back up RB in the first two rounds last year.

Seeing a team like the Chiefs go out and fix what's needed to compete for a SB each offseason has to be frustrating

Itís been 10 years since the Packers have spent a first rd pick to help Rodgers on offense. They were completely against spending FA until 2019.

Why do you think Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers are so pissed off?

Bc they see guys like Patrick Mahomes on franchises that are doing everything in their power to help him succeed and they value his input.

I donít blame either of those guys for acting this way. Itís managements fault, not theirs.

Green Bay acts like Rodgers isn't good and they need to play for 3 years down the line... meanwhile Rodgers carries a cast of bums to back to back NFC title games..

Front office responds by making the team worse and not spending money each time.
