Aaron Rodgers, quarterback of the Green bay packers, He communicated that he is “disappointed” with the organization and could leave the team in the next few hours. The information was confirmed by the chain ‘ESPN’ and generated a lot of repercussion in the world of NFL. The 37-year-old has just won the award for Most valuable Player (Mvp) after completing his third best season in scoring (40).
Historic NFL player Aaron Rodgers told the Green Bays of his discontent and no longer wants to return to the team. The information came shortly before the start of the 2021 edition of the NFL Draft. Rodgers presents a contract valid until 2023 but would be willing to leave the team in the next few hours, according to the journalist Adam Schefter of ‘ESPN’.
This Thursday the information came like a bomb that Rodgers communicated to the organization his intentions not to continue in the team and various options for his future are already being considered. Packers president Mark Murphy along with general manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach Matt LaFleur met Rodgers several times in the offseason but apparently failed to convince him.
“As we have stated since the end of the season. We are committed to Aaron in 2021 and beyond. Aaron has been a vital part of our success and we look forward to the opportunity to compete for another championship with him leading our team, ”Packers general manager Gutekunst told ESPN. The Green Bays’ intentions are clearly to retain Rodgers, as they would not like to see him in another jersey.
According to sources, the San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams asked for the quarterback. Despite Rodgers’ desire to leave the Packers, the institution plans to offer the historic player a contract extension. Also, they would have already turned down the Rams’ offer. Rodgers would be upset with some organizational decisions of late, which led to this surprising decision. Jordan Love (recruited in 2020) appears as the main option to replace him, according to ‘The Athletic’.
