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.

When is A A Ron not disgruntled and wanting out of Green Bay?


Would not want his locker room attitude. If you're a team needing a quarterback then I could see a desperate team wanting but A A Ron won't like where ever he goes because the team is going suck around him and then he will continue to be disgruntled.

Aiyuk instead of Samuel might get that done.

But why would Rodgers want to play without Aiyuk ?

Why would the Packers not trade him in the NFC? We just spent the last 2 months saying that the Ravens would never trade with the Chiefs.

Rodgers is 37. It’s not like they’d see him for the next 10 years. And who gives a shit if you can rape an NFC team for picks and players.

Well duh. MVP QB, good defense, offensive weapons, better OL.

They have the only QB that can compete with Patrick in the conference if that happens

Once you trade Rodgers, you’re essentially starting over anyway. I don’t see why they would care where he goes. He’ll likely be retired by the time they’re ready to contend anyway.

They're gonna suck though. Badly. Why should they care if he's in SF? I can see not trading him to the Bears or a division opponent but SF...if they can get that package above sounds like a good deal.

Also Green Bay is the perfect example of why you need an owner not just community shareholders. Having an owner would have solved a lot of Green Bay's problems with Aaron.

And there is no way the Ravens would trade Brown to the Chiefs. :-)

As great as it was for us it's a Tackle vs league mvp QB.

It's still the fan vs front office perspective argument.

If I had to guess, I would say the Ravens trading Brown to the Chiefs was less likely.

I can understand why the Ravens might not make that trade with the Chiefs. Even though I disagree with it, I at least understand it.

I don’t see a single reason to keep Rodgers out of the NFC. They’re going to regress immediately with the trade, so why in the world would they care where he goes? Just ship him to the highest bidder.

No team is going to be able to top SF's offer....and Rodgers has control of where he goes.

If this isn't some pre-draft BS...and he legit isnt coming back...they better think hard on the 49er's offer.

They could get Pitts with the #3, Bosa...and probably someone else. Or trade out of the third pick....and dump Rodgers salary.

Broncos could offer what......#9, Jerry Jeudy and Bradley Chubb? Plus more 1st round picks.
