It went from non-stop Deshaun Watson news in regards to wanting out of Houston to Aaron Rodgers wanting out of Green Bay.
Adam Schefter of ESPN dropped that major news hours before the draft that the future hall of fame QB 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.
Ian Rapoport added to the news by stating that Rodgers did not want to restructure his deal, but wanted an extension. Other teams called knowing how unhappy he was, but the Packers turned them down. That’s when they offered an extension to make him happy, but it was too late.
“Over the last month, Aaron Rodgers had his agent Dave Dunn fly out to Green Bay for several days of meetings to work through the situation. Rodgers refused a restructure. Wanted an extension. Teams called knowing he wasn’t happy. GB rebuffed them. Offered an extension. No deal.”
“As we’ve stated since the season ended, we are committed to Aaron in 2021 and beyond,” general manager Brian 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 is reportedly unhappy about his contract as well as the team drafting Jordan Love last year.
In 2020, Rodgers appeared in all 16 games for the Packers and completed 70.7 percent of his passes for 4,299 yards, 48 touchdowns, and five interceptions.
