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.

Man I don't blame him. Throw the reasons out the door.

I was ready for a change of scenery after being at the same job for nearly 12 years. Gotta be repetitive doing the same shit over and over with the same end result.

The Packers should take the 49ers #3 overall pick, then turn it into multiple picks in order to beef up their defense, especially at pass rusher and CB, then add a wide receiver or two along with offensive and defensive line depth.

I mean, for fuck's sake, they drafted Jordan Love last year so why are they waiting to play him?

This board would meltdown if Mahomes was 37 and playing that well and the team have him no help.
They have the best WR in the game, the best LT in football, a top 5 RB.

I get what youre saying but damn.

Stay in the NFC you stupid bitch. No Broncos, no Raiders, no Patriots. Just go to WFT or something.

I mean, other than the fact heís a project and was overdrafted.

They deserve Love, though, after moving from Farve to Rogers.

I was being facetious.

Everyone said the Packers would be much better after firing Ted Thompson but it looks to me that they're exactly the same.

The second you draft Love you started the clock on this. They had to know that.

If i were GB id ask for that three and Kittle. Probably unrealistic but Love would have no excuse.
