#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.

The 49ers trade makes a lot of sense if the relationship is this bad.

If you aren’t going to build around him exclusively, then you might as well prepare for life without him. No time like the present. Cash out and move on.

It would be fun if they did trade him to the Jags.

Green Bay is trying to work out a contract extension to make him happy according to Rapoport.

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.
Exactly! So tired of his act.

Aaron Rodgers deserves to be traded to Houston at this point and to be subjected to that dumpster fire.

Enjoy calling Jack Easterby, "boss", Aaron.

They want to make him happy? Give him more money, send a pick to the Falcons for Julio Jones and then draft some fucking weapons this draft.

They just drafted his heir apparent in the 1st round last year...so they obviously have already put the transition in motion.

Might as well make out like a bandit and give Love the best team you can.

Heh. A bit long in the tooth, but he has the makings of a serviceable backup. Perhaps we can get him for vet minimum. :-)

Uh thatís not gonna work. At all.

You guys forget last year? They drafted Love and told Rodgers to fuck off bc they were in charge. Thatís when this changed.

He hates all of those idiotic fools in that front office. And based on reports he was told they were gonna try and trade him and then didnít.

He has every right to tell them to fuck off

The league is setup perfectly. We're the top dog.

Just keep things as is.

Front office responds by making the team worse and not spending money each time.
He failed in the champ game again. Defense gave him 3 picks and he did shit with it. He [played lights out and got another MVP but when the chips were on the line he curled up into a ball and failed.
