Green Bay Packers’ 37-year-old, three-time MVP Aaron Rodgers remains a member of the roster, but there’s more and more scuttle that he WON’T be with the team once the season kicks off in New Orelans on September 12th.
Monday Morning QB author Peter King spoke about Rodgers in his weekly column on Monday, saying that the quarterback “is solid on never playing for the Packers again.”
The writer says that the Packers and Rodgers are not seeing eye to eye, and that Rodgers won’t report for team OTAs or for camp until they resolve their ongoing saga.
King believes that Green Bay is going to shop Rodgers on the trade market and will look to move him following this upcoming season, no matter how it all shapes out.
The long time SI author goes on to say that things would go a lot more smoothly if the Packers could get a list of teams he would be willing to play for. Rodgers has been rumored to be heading out west to play for a team like the 49ers. The biggest question is which team is going to ante up a king’s ransom for Rodgers’ services.
The QB collected $6.8 million in a roster bonus back in March, and the Packers will probably want to get that money back if Rodgers declines to show up at practice.
Another player who also isn’t likely to show up for practice is leading wide out Davante Adams. Adams and most of the Packers’ other top receivers skipped voluntary OTAs, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that they’re all expected to be there for mandatory work.
