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.

Pretty clear shot across the bow.

Packers deserve being consigned to the dregs of the league.

They probably might want Lock though. The Packers were interested in him but the Broncos traded ahead of them to draft him.
Hell, they can have Lock... DaeShawn Hamilton (likely a roster casualty), Von and half the pick allotment discussed below and I'm in.

Greeny said Rodgers wants to put Mahomes in the Wild Card game each year and wants to go to Denver or Vegas.

Something else interesting here: you’re going to have guys needing pod big contracts after this year.

Chubb
Von
Sutton
Fuller
Darby
Jackson
Harris

They’re gonna lose some of these guys if they get Rodgers. Even if they redo his contract he should still be counting at least $25 million next year.

Add that to losing picks/players for the trade?

Exactly. Denver should do it.

Why do you all continue to talk like this is even a legitimate possibility? It’s not happening this year. Maybe next, but not now.

If Green Bay had an owner this would get fixed. But because they don't their front office bozos have a to of power.

Omg, please let Vegas get him. That would be awesome to watch. Especially since they’ve traded or released most of their good O linemen.

KC
Baltimore

Indianapolis

Miami
New England
San Angeles Chargers

I didn't even mention Pittsburgh, who will be an improved team (even if their record will be worse than last year). May as well add them to the list as well.

A Rodgersless Donks will beat 2 of those teams to get into the playoffs?
In a 17 game schedule, a 4th place finisher now gets 3 4th place games. so Broncos get Jaguars, Lions and Jets. Chargers as 3rd place finisher get Texans, Vikings and Patriots.

Broncos did have a lot of injuries to their best players early last year. Playing a 4th place schedule in a 17 game season and 7 teams in each conference make playoffs, of course Broncos have a shot at postseason.

I think it's safe to say that the players in bold won't be back.
