Aaron Rodgers rejects extension offer from Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers has reportedly declined a two-year contract extension offer from the Green Bay Packers.

According to Adam Schefter from ESPN on Tuesday, the Green Bay Packers offered Rodgers a deal that would have kept him for an additional five years and made him the NFL’s “highest-paid player and quarterback.”

Schefter wrote on Twitter that Rodgers rejecting the proposal is “proof” his problem with the team is “not about the money.”

Rodgers is known for having several issues with the Packers’ management. In the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, general manager Brian Gutekunst traded up to select quarterback Jordan Love without giving Rodgers an advance notice.

“With my situation, look, it’s never been about the draft pick, picking Jordan,” Rodgers told ESPN in May. “I love Jordan. He’s a great kid. [We’ve had] a lot of fun to work together. Love the coaching staff, love my teammates, love the fan base in Green Bay. An incredible 16 years.”

The Packers have scheduled their training camp for next week. However, last week, team president Mark Murphy declined to answer a question on the quarterback’s situation.

“I would just say there’s nothing new to update on the issue that you raised,” said Murphy.
