Aaron Rodgers reportedly wants out of Green Bay and the Packers have apparently been unable to change his mind.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, a disgruntled Rodgers told some people within the Packers organization that he did not want to come back to Green Bay.

Schefter went on to add that several members of the Packers front office went to meet Rodgers in California to try and change his mind.


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.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that Rodgers is unhappy with how his recent contract negotiations with the team went.

On Thursday afternoon it was reported that the 49ers had made a trade offer for Rodgers but were quickly shut down.

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.”

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.
