The Green Bay Packers front office is saying and doing everything they can to ensure Aaron Rodgers know they want him back for the 2021 season.
After the Los Angeles Rams pulled off a mega trade with the Detroit Lions that had both teams swap quarterbacks, news came out that the Rams contacted the Packers about trying to trade for Aaron Rodgers.
Brian Gutekunst quickly made it clear that Rodgers is not available.
While speaking to the media on Monday, the Green Bay Packers general manager said there was “no truth” to rumors that the Rams called about Rodgers over the weekend.
“Absolutely not,” Gutekunst replied when asked if he saw a scenrio where the team would be willing to trade Rodgers.
Rodgers is coming off back-to-back NFC Championship Game appearances with the Packers.
The team didn’t address any needs in the 2020 Draft for the upcoming season as they traded up to select QB Jordan Love, who is clearly the QB in waiting to take over after Rodgers.
Instead of taking it personal, Rodgers went out and won 13 games while throwing a league-leading 48 touchdowns in the regular season. He is also expected to win the MPV award.
