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.

Green Bay's defense sucks and there are plenty of teams with more skill position weapons than the Packers.

.@AdamSchefter says Packers GM, coach and CEO Mark Murphy have flown out multiple times to meet with Aaron Rodgers and convince him to come back and Rodgers "has not budged" on his stance.

It blows my mind how teams can piss on franchise players then wonder why they sucks for a decade after.
This. How do they let their pro bowl C just walk to LAC? Drafting Jordan Love was insanely stupid. They could've had Justin Jefferson and instead TRADE UP and draft the guy's replacement? LOL

I don't blame him at all. He should've forced this quicker though. Make this desire public back in Feb. and he might be in San Fran or Miami right now. IDK if they can get anything done this late in the off-season.

Think the Patriots would make a run at him?

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

He's going to end up with the donks before his career is done

I think there is a chance he is going to be traded to the 49er's before tonight

be amusing if he ends up a 49er, as they famously picked alex smith over him and caused the slide back in his draft.
