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.

They're a spoiled organization, they have no idea what not having a QB is like, hence why they don't think they should pamper him.

Because of the money they make lots of fans think players should just shutup and play and aren't allowed to say anything.

It's pretty stupid actually.

Watching you tip toe between being a conspiritard and being an amateur analyst is too funny. The mental gymnastics you must do....
I think the whole ****ing thing is rigged...Ive made that quite clear. You dont have to agree with me...I'm not tip toeing any line.

I have as much emotional investment in the NFL as I do a tree stump...It's YOU the needs to publicly validate your emotional attachment...and my opinion threatens that.

Like I said...I dont give a shit, so move on...I dont care what you believe or dont...I fully support your choice. Isnt America grand?

It is fucking insane if you look at the list of their starting QB by season. With a couple of oddball seasons as exceptions their list of starters going back to the 1950ís:

Bart Starr
John Hadl
Lynn Dickey
Don Majkowski
Brett Favre
Aaron Rodgers

Thatís disgusting.

So then why are you discussing the merits of Aaron Rodgers' play in the NFCCG, Mr. "it couldnt have been gift-wrapped any better"?

It's all rigged. OBVIOUSLY Aaron Rodgers had no control over the outcome of that game since it was rigged for Brady.

So im just curious as to why you hold Aaron responsible?

I think it's a fair question.

I intentionally left out my "rigged" observations from that NFCCG game for sake of a thread derailment...it's only you that is selling "wolf tickets"...trying to start an argument.

Consider our correspondence done...

Enjoy calling Jack Easterby, "boss", Aaron.
No the fucking Packers and their spoiled ass franchise deserves to go through 50 years of Matt Cassel and Tyler Thigpen retread hell.

Theyíve had HOF QB play since the early 90ís and have 2 rings to their name. Thatís pathetic and they take no ownership of their shitty management

Nothing says both can't be true. Rodgers has been a know a-hole for a long time.

You would think young stars and minimum 3 firsts plus.
And possibly more because those firsts should be 25th or later outside of this year.

That and I assume they would only deal with afc teams again.

Long term it probably hurt that McCcarthy won a super bowl early and they stuck with him way to long because of that.

But to be fair they either drafted OL or Defensive players with a late first round pick most years. Not sure the belief that if we put a winning team on the field should make everyone happy is wrong. It just did not work out.

But it seems that they just got the coaching figured out. Weird time to want to jump ship. Unless he want to get closer to LA and compete for the Jeopardy job or just a ploy to get a big extension.
