Aaron Rodgers may have played his final game with the Green Bay Packers, if he gets his way. Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Rodgers told some members within the Packers organization he does not want to return to the team. The Packers are concerned about Rodgers’ feelings and had several high ranking-officials in the organization reach out to him at various points in the offseason.
CBS Sports NFL Insider Jonathan Jones has confirmed the report.
Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said Wednesday that Rodgers will be “our quarterback for the foreseeable future,” but Rodgers apparently has other plans in mind.
“We’re excited about kind of the things we’re going to try to accomplish here over the next couple years,” Gutekunst said on a conference call with reporters this week, via the Packers website. “We had to do a lot of things (with contracts) to bring guys back this year and we’ll have to do that again. So we’re not done by any means yet, and we are working through that with a number of our players, including Aaron.”
