We don’t generally report on a whole lot of news that isn’t directly related to the Minnesota Vikings, but this appears to be a big enough story that we’re just going to go ahead and run with it.
Reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers is so disgruntled with the Green Bay Packers that he has told some within the organization that he does not want to return to the team, league and team sources told ESPN on Thursday.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 29, 2021
More on NFL Live now....
Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Aaron Rodgers is apparently completely disgruntled with the Green Bay Packers. . .not sure if he was ever “gruntled” at any point. . .and does not want to return to the team following his MVP season.
Keep in mind. . .this is not Joe Schmuckatelli from Sheboygan Cable Access reporting this. It’s Adam Schefter, perhaps the most inside of NFL insiders. This isn’t just smoke. . .there’s a whole damn fire happening here.
Why is Rodgers angry with the Packers after his team has made back-to-back NFL Championship Game appearances? To be honest, I don’t know. What I do know is that if Rodgers doesn’t return to the Packers for whatever reason in 2021 that team gets a whole lot worse. They certainly wouldn’t be the favorites to win the NFC North for a third consecutive season, that’s for sure.
I’m sure that this story is going to dominate the rest of the day until the start of tonight’s NFL Draft, and probably a great deal of the conversation during the draft as well. Feel free to discuss it all right here!
