#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.

What are the Raiders going to give up for Rodgers? They have nothing of value to give.
Broncos? Maybe but it would cost them #9, plus some of their good players.
The 49ers can give up the #3 pick and they have better players to send back.

Oh I misread that thinking it was another team

I would be tempted to just let him retire then, no way I would trade him to the 49'ers.

Any team he goes to will be picking 24th or later in the future...so the Raiders can give up 4 first round picks and their entire 2021.

What is the NFL MVP QB worth....he makes any team a legit SB contender for the next 4 years..

We already saw the officials hand the Raiders a win over KC last year...this could be a problem for Chief fans.

While certain teams have reached out to the Packers to inquire about Aaron Rodgers this off-season, no team has made a trade offer for him, per source.

Niners can also offer Bosa which is the best available player to bring in among those 3 teams. Alot less pick wise though.

I don't think him being in the NFC makes a difference as they are gonna suck (top pick in 22 suck) without him.

If I’m the 49ers....I offer up the #3, Deebo Samuel and Nick Bosa.

#3 overall vs nothing? That would be incredibly stupid of them.

Raiders also just got done getting rid of basically their entire offensive line. That was the strength of that team too. Why would he want to go there anyway? All they have to throw to is Waller. Shitty defense as well.

Donks and Niners make the most sense. Unless WFT or Miami works...

I'm just saying I would much prefer to trade him to an AFC team, especially considering how he has always wanted to play for SF. A trade with the 49'ers would be my last option.

^^^^^^^^^^^
All of this. And the Packers should take it. Maybe grab a future 1st rd pick somewhere down the line.

It seems unlikely they trade him but even more unlikely that they trade him within the NFC.

According to ESPN ....if they trade Rodgers to the Broncos....then they’re contenders.

Highly unlikely Packers trade him in the NFC.
