Say it ain’t so Packers fans! Aaron Rodgers wants out of Green Bay. Especially now. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers spent some time talking about his future with the team during the offseason after they traded up to draft Jordan Love at No. 26 in April’s NFL draft.
Now that the team has reported for training camp Rodgers sounded like he was getting tired about being asked about his future with the team. Does Arron Rodgers want out of Green Bay seriously?
“There’s been a lot of hypothetical questions on here. I’m not always a huge fan of guessing those things,” Rodgers said Monday during a 26-minute virtual session with reporters on the first day of player availability during training camp. “But obviously, I’ve said that before. I think if I retire on the team’s timeline, then all is well.
If they’re looking to move on before I’m done playing, there becomes an impasse at that point. Can control my play and my performance and my approach and my leadership, but at some point, there’s other factors involved. It’s what I said to you guys Day 1 when we talked about this, and that’s what I said to Kyle. That’s the facts to me at this point.”

A day earlier, head coach Matt LaFleur said he envisions Rodgers as the Packers’ quarterback for “a really long time” but acknowledged that no one knows how long that would be.
“Nothing’s guaranteed in this league,” LaFleur said Sunday. “But I feel so lucky to be able to work with him on a daily basis. I don’t see that changing for a really long time.”
When asked what he meant by a very long time, LaFleur said:
“Savor every moment, every season,” Rodgers said. “I don’t take any of it for granted. I don’t know what the future holds. I know I can control this year and my play and my approach and my attitude. And I’m enjoying being back with the guys. It’s fun to see them. Different, obviously, circumstances. There’s a lot of things that are strange compared to the last 15 years I’ve been here, but I’m really enjoying being back here with the guys and being back in meetings and workouts and just seeing the energy and the smiles and the laughs. That really makes it fun.”
