As the saying goes, no news is good news. In this case, no news means no news.
Aaron Rodgers missed the Packers’ mandatory mini-training camp during the dispute with Green Bay, and it seemed that there was no end to it. On Wednesday, Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer provided an update, which is not particularly encouraging for Rogers’ long-term future with the team.
Glazer reports that Rogers definitely still strongly wants to leave Green Bay-which means that potential renewal negotiations may now be put on hold-and that any trade negotiations on MVP QB have not been conducted over the phone:
“I know he still wants to leave. No doubt. Absolutely,” Glazer reported. “Still want to go out. Of course he still wants to go out. They didn’t suddenly insult him, and then said,’Well, it’s solved now.'”
Glazer also said that the team is still interested in trading Rogers. In fact, Glazer added that since the 2020 NFL draft, the team has been calling to inquire about Rogers’ availability, even during the 2020 trade deadline.
“There are several teams interested. But it doesn’t even go that far because every time someone calls the Packers, it will be shut down immediately,” Glazer said.
Although some speculation has fueled that Rogers and the Packers front desk may be studying the details of a new contract that will keep him in Green Bay until the end of his career, there are no specific reports on the completion of the new contract.
On the contrary, the President of the Packers Mark Murphy recently tagged Rogers A “complex guy” further confuses the real situation behind closed doors between the player and the team.
