This is something to monitor as we move forward.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Aaron Rodgers has told members of the Green Bay Packers organization that he does not want to return to the team and has seemingly requested a trade:
Rodgers is reportedly unhappy for many reasons, including the Packers decision last year to draft QB Jordan Love.
Rodgers’ contract contained a $6.8 million roster bonus due in March. It could have been converted into a signing bonus that would have freed up more than $4.5 million in salary-cap space for this season but instead it “vested as scheduled,” a source told ESPN at the time. It’s listed as an automatic conversion in Rodgers’ contract but even that has to be signed off on by both parties. It’s not known if the Packers tried to convert and Rodgers refused to sign off on it, or if they did not attempt a conversion.
