Despite winning his third MVP and nearly reaching his second Super Bowl with Green Bay last season, Aaron Rodgers is reportedly not interested in returning to the Packers for the 2021 season.
Sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that 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.”
According to Schefter, the team is “aware of his feelings,” with team president Mark Murphy, general manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach Matt LaFleur all flying out separately to meet with Rodgers to discuss his frustrations.
The relationship between Rodgers and the Packers has become complicated since the team moved up to draft Jordan Love in the first round in last year’s draft. Rodgers has been noncommittal in comments about his future since then, even as the team has insisted it has no interest in trading the veteran quarterback.
If Rodgers were to become available, he would attract the interest of a ton of teams. The San Francisco 49ers reportedly called the Packers about Rodgers on Wednesday night, while the Rams asked about him in January before completing the deal for Matt Stafford.
