ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter first said via Twitter Thursday afternoon that Packers quarterback and three-time NFL 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.”
Schefter added via ESPN.com:
“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."
Heading into Thursday’s opening round of the NFL Draft, Green Bay holds the 29th overall selection. There have been various reports that the Packers received and rebuffed an inquiry regarding Rodgers’ availability earlier this week.
