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.

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.
Their entire off-season last year was like a giant middle finger telling Rodgers to fuck off.

It blows my mind how teams can piss on franchise players then wonder why they sucks for a decade after.

There were posters talking about drafting a backup RB with one of our 2nd rd picks tomorrow. It’s insane that the Packers actually did that.

It’s guaranteed (unless injury occurs) that the Packers spent a 2nd rd pick on a RB that will be a backup for at least HALF of his rookie deal.

We’d all want Veach’s head on a spike if he did that shit :-)

If the 49ers can pull off a trade for Rodgers.....that team would be nuts.

If I’m the Broncos I’m calling yesterday. I’d offer 4 first rd picks for the guy

They then doubled down by resigning Jones. Had they let him go to spend that elsewhere ok...

Just idiotic.

I never understood the QB pick last season.

If your franchise QB is still playing at a high level, you might as well ride it out with him and give him the best chance possible. The odds of drafting someone even close to his level are slim.

They would’ve been much better off with Tee Higgins or Chase Claypool. That’s not really hindsight being 20/20 either. Anyone could’ve made that argument on draft day 2020 as well.

The packers have kinda dug their own grave with the players they've drafted over the years and other stupid shit they've done

I would ONLY draft a RB in the 2nd round if it was an incredible value and our bigger positions of need were reaches. In that case, take the best player on the board.

That wonít happen though, so Iím against taking a RB in the second round this year.

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

I dunno. They have a top 3 WR, top 5-7 RB, top 3 offensive line. There's not many better available situations he's going to leave GB and walk into.

I hope the Packers don't trade Rodgers, only to see him retire the day Training Camp begins.

He needs to fuck them over like he's been fucked over for the past 10 years of his career.
