  • Packers, Aaron Rodgers Unlikely To Resolve Issues Until July

    The Green Bay Packers are not expected to have any negotiations with quarterback Aaron Rodgers over the course of the next couple of weeks. Rodgers, the reigning MVP sat out of the team's entire offseason program. "To me, and based on the people I've spoken with, this is really something that will be wrapped up either way, if they do find the solution that Green Bay has wanted, if Aaron Rodgers does get the security that he wants potentially in the form of a new contract, probably not going to happen until the start of training camp," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said. Most people expect some sort of resolution to the drama to take place, but if Rodgers holds out of training camp, it would be a sign that he might not be back. Although Rodgers doesn't appear to be slowing down at 37 years old, fantasy managers shouldn't expect another MVP season in 2021, even if he stays in Green Bay. If you can get him as a midrange QB1, that's fine, but let someone else pay the high-end QB1 price.

  • Aaron Rodgers Remains A Great Downfield Passer

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers led the league in deep passing yards with 1,219 last season, also recording the second-most deep pass attempts of any qualifying quarterback in the NFL with 74. The veteran signal-caller won the MVP in 2020 and continued to excel with wide receiver Davante Adams, who was one of the top-10 pass-catchers last year. Rodgers led the league with 14 completions, 557 yards and six touchdowns on deep passes to slot receivers. The 37-year-old hasn't slowed down with his performance on the field, but there's concern that he will either retire or force a trade out of Green Bay because of his unhappiness with the front office. If Rodgers is playing elsewhere in 2021, it will make him a much more risky high-end QB1 for fantasy purposes.

  • Aaron Rodgers Doesn't Report To OTAs

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was not among the group of players that reported on Monday for the start of organized team activities. Rodgers has been a regular participant in the team's offseason program and OTAs throughout his career, until now. It doesn't come as a surprise, though, as he's reportedly not happy with the direction of the franchise. There remains a divide between Rodgers and the organization a year after he won the MVP. The 37-year-old said he wants to be traded this offseason, but it remains to be seen if the two sides can reconcile. The Denver Broncos were mentioned as a possible landing spot for Rodgers during the NFL draft last month, but nothing is close on the trade front. If Rodgers were to get his wish and be traded, it would obviously be really bad news for the fantasy value of Green Bay's skill players, most notably wide receiver Davante Adams.

  • Matt LaFleur Says Packers Want Aaron Rodgers Back

    Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur reiterated that the team wants quarterback Aaron Rodgers to return in 2021 and beyond. "We still obviously feel the same way. We want him back in the worst way. I know he knows that. We'll continue to work at it each and every day," LaFleur said. It was reported on draft day last month that Rodgers wanted out of Green Bay, and rumors have been swirling ever since. Green Bay has no plans to trade Rodgers, and several of his ex-teammates believe the situation is fixable. The Packers are apparently pleased with Jordan Love's development despite the fact that he didn't play at all in his rookie year after being a first-round pick. Rodgers, last year's MVP, continues to play at a high level despite nearing the end of his career. Wherever he's playing in 2021, he'll be a highly coveted high-end QB1, that's to be sure.

  • Aaron Rodgers Not Ruling Out A Return To Packers

    Former Green Bay Packers fullback John Kuhn, who spent nine years with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, said that the future Hall of Fame signal-caller hasn't ruled out a return to the team. "I still believe there's an opportunity for a resolution here. It's going to take two men that are dug in right now trying to meet in the middle somewhere where they're both happy," Kuhn said. The fullback said that he thinks Rodgers wants to come back to Green Bay, but he doesn't want to be on a lame-duck contract. Basically, he wants the Packers to commit to him long term despite trading up to take Jordan Love in the first round in 2020. Rodgers could win a power struggle with general manager Brian Gutekunst, but there's still a very real chance that he's playing elsewhere in 2021, which will make all of the team's offensive skill players risky in fantasy until we know for sure.

  • Packers Looking To Add Quarterbacks To Their Roster

    The Green Bay Packers have started exploring quarterbacks that they can add to their roster for upcoming organized team activities and training camp, according to sources. Last year's first-rounder Jordan Love is currently the only QB on the roster other than Aaron Rodgers, who has told some in the organization that he no longer wants to play for the team. It's unknown if Rodgers will attend voluntary sessions later this month. One source said the Packers search has branched out to include veteran signal-callers. Green Bay didn't draft a quarterback last week, but general manager Brian Gutekunst said they will likely sign at least one undrafted rookie QB. While the uncertainty surrounding Rodgers is playing a part, it's not the sole impetus for the Packers trying to add depth at the position.

  • Aaron Rodgers Not Budging With Packers

    Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre, who knows how current Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers is feeling these days, thinks that Rodgers is unlikely to back down. "Knowing Aaron, and I think I know him fairly well, if he has a grudge, whether it be against the organization or a player or an arch-rival, or family, friends, he ain't budging," Favre said on the "Bolling with Favre" podcast. If Rodgers were to abruptly retire, he'd owe the team around $23 million over the next two years. The Packers traded up in the first round of last year's draft to select Jordan Love, Rodgers' eventual successor, and Rodgers didn't take kindly to that. Rodgers has reportedly mocked general manager Brian Gutekunst in group chats with teammates, referring to him as Jerry Krause, the former Bulls GM who got into it with Michael Jordan. At this point, anything could happen with Rodgers and the Packers. Buckle up.

  • Aaron Rodgers Considering Retirement?

    Until the situation with the Green Bay Packers is repaired to his liking, quarterback Aaron Rodgers is seriously considering retirement, according to sources. If he were to retire, he would have to repay the team $11.5 million this year and $11.5 million if he remains retired next year -- all from his signing bonus. Reports surfaced before the first round of the 2021 NFL draft on Thursday that Rodgers was disgruntled and didn't want to return to the team this year. However, general manager Brian Gutekunst and the front office continue to hold firm and say that they will not trade last year's MVP. Rogers has the same agent, Dave Dunn, that helped Carson Palmer force his way out of Cincinnati. As of right now, it doesn't look like Rodgers is going anywhere, but things could change. Stay tuned.

  • Packers Say They Won't Trade Aaron Rodgers

    Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said on Thursday night about that possibility of trading quarterback Aaron Rodgers: "No, we're not going to trade Aaron Rodgers." "He's our quarterback. He's our leader. We've been working through this for a little while now. I just think it might take some time. But he's the guy that makes this thing go." Things between Rodgers and the organization started to sour when the team traded up in the first round to take quarterback Jordan Love in last year's draft, and a report surfaced on Thursday that Rodgers told members of the Packers that he doesn't want to return in 2021. Green Bay also wanted Rodgers to restructure his contract to help with the salary cap situation, but Rodgers instead wanted a new contract extension. Rodgers reportedly would be interested in playing for the San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos or Las Vegas Raiders, but as of right now, the Packers have no plans to deal him. The 37-year-old is the reigning NFL MVP and while he's nearing the end of his career, he's proved he can continue to play at a really high level. Stay tuned.

  • 49ers Asked About Aaron Rodgers

    The San Francisco 49ers reached out to the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday about trading for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but no formal offer was made, and a source said there is "zero percent chance" that the Packers trade the reigning NFL MVP. The Niners are focused on the NFL draft, which begins on Thursday night with the first round, and are expected to take a signal-caller with the No. 3 overall pick. But they've also been monitoring veteran quarterbacks such as Rodgers and Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson. The 49ers are just doing their due diligence here before the draft kicks off. The Packers have been trying to restructure Rodgers' contract, which still has three years remaining. While Rodgers isn't getting any younger, he's still at the top of his game, and Green Bay isn't interested in giving him up.

  • Packers Reiterate That Aaron Rodgers Is Their Guy

    Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst told reporters at his pre-draft press conference that quarterback Aaron Rodgers is their guy. "He's our quarterback for the foreseeable future," Gutekunst said. Rodgers currently has three years left on his deal and will count $37.202 million against this year's salary cap, so the Packers have been trying to restructure the 2020 MVP's contract. Rogers lit it up last year, throwing for 4,299 yards, 48 touchdowns and five interceptions in the regular season, so of course the Packers are sticking with him as he enters his age-38 campaign. Green Bay shocked everyone when they traded up to take quarterback Jordan Love in the first round last season, but he's at least another year or two away from being ready to take over. Rodgers was a draft steal in 2020, but he'll cost a pretty penny heading into the 2021 season.
