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.

And also when your franchise's best quarterback continuously talks about the team drafting offensive help, you try and accommodate him at some point, and not -- as the packers have done year after year -- ignore the offense in the first round

Also per sources: as of last night Rodgers was convinced he was headed to San Francisco. Draft day is the best... pic.twitter.com/JImkjbixA3

They wanted to focus on building and maintaining that defensive powerhouse.

Aaron Rodgers' "I am never happy and will always have a chip on my shoulder act", got old and annoying long ago.

Green Bay is not going to trade him five minutes before the draft, so either he goes all in with his supposed unhappiness and retires/sits out the season or he stops with this passive aggressive bullshit and plays out his contract.

I hope he just retires.

We should see if Rodgers wants to mentored by Mahomes?

Could this be more of why no one has been able to lockdown the SF pick at #3. All the talking heads have said Lance or Jones. But could this have all been a smoke screen for an Aaron Rodgers trade?

SF is tight lipped about everything thy do. Let people talk about these rookies while they wheel and deal behind the scenes for Aaron Rodgers. Maybe?

I'd rather he not. Just keep demanding a trade over and over. And not show up to camp. Total standoff. Same thing I wanted for Watson before he was destroyed.

He'd be a decent backup, I guess. Henne and a 6th?

The only draft pick Green Bay should consider trading Aaron Rodgers for at this point is the #1 overall pick to get Trevor Lawrence and that is not happening.
