ESPN’s Adam Schefter, citing anonymous league and team sources, said Rodgers had told some within the organization that he wanted to leave.
According to the report, the San Francisco 49ers called the Packers on Wednesday and the Rams contacted Green Bay in January before trading quarterback Jared Goff to the Detroit Lions in exchange for quarterback Matthew Stafford. The Packers don’t want to trade Rodgers, according to the report.
According to media and salary tracking website Spotrac, Rodgers is signed for the 2023 season.
When contacted by CNN, the Packers provided a statement from Gutekunst, which had previously been provided to ESPN: “As we have stated since the end of the season, we are committed to Aaron in 2021 and beyond. Aaron has been a critical part of our success and we look forward to competing for another championship with him leading our team. “
Rodgers, 37, won his third NFL MVP award last season. His first season with Green Bay dates back to 2005.
