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

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.

Idk that GB would trade him in the conference. SF or WFT would be great places for him.

If I was GB And I had to get him out, send him to the AFC. Shit the Dolphins have lots of picks. Talk to them

No, tampering does not include having meetings with your own player who's currently under contract with said team.

The 49ers with Rodgers would be.... not ideal for the NFC

Aaron told Packers he doesn’t want to return as @AdamSchefter said and I think it’s more than a contract deal, I think he’s pretty strongly convicted that he doesn’t want to go back to Packers.

If this happens.....That would have to be GB's top choice. They have a ton of picks and can give up Tua as well. Take those picks and let Tua/Love battle it out and trade the loser of said battle.

49ers make some sense.

They have the high pick and they’re clearly building for the short-term.

If he was younger, I could see wanting to ship him to the AFC. He’s old, so he should just go to the highest bidder.

Green Bay has done everything but support him. I know he gets a rap as being selfish and weird but fuck, hes got one reciever one okay guy and a demarcus robinson out there. Then Jones to run the ball. Green Bay is a team you look at and say "Outside of Rodgers, one smith brother and Devante... Where exactly have they been investing?" Defense is okay, kind of propped by their division, The offense is absolute dog shit if you take Rodgers away, and then theres a 50 year old mason crosby.

It’s obvious now that Rodgers has been telling GB how unhappy he is for awhile, word gets out and SF probably decides to call and discuss terms.

GB says fuck off, Rodgers finds out and let’s his people unload that news to the media.

It’s on
