Packers Beat Reporter Reveals How Team Really Feels About Aaron Rodgers Situation
Aaron Rodgers' future with the Green Bay Packers is one of the NFL's biggest offseason storylines, as he's planted himself firmly at the top of the potential QB carousel.
Rodgers is currently off on some sort of "darkness retreat" that is meant to help him clear his mind and come to a resolution on his situation and what the next step in his career is. He can either retire, stay with Green Bay or play for another team.
While that decision is mostly up to Rodgers, the Packers do have a bit of a say and obviously have an opinion. Their public position has been supportive of a Rodgers return to Green Bay, but according to Packers beat writer Bob McGinn, the team is "done with" Rodgers.

McGinn's source said the team is "disgusted" with Rodgers and how he handled the 2022 season, which was a big disappointment on the field for both him and his teammates.
It certainly sounds like the Packers are singing a completely different tune behind closed doors than they are publicly. He also notes that Green Bay is enamored with Jordan Love who has been waiting in the wings for three years now and is beginning to grow frustrated with his lack of opportunity.
When Love was drafted in 2020 he was known to be a project, but it now seems like he has progressed enough and is potentially ready to start in 2023.
Rodgers is clearly the better option in the short term, but sometimes things must come to an end, and the circumstances between now and when Rodgers took over for Brett Favre in Green Bay are eerily similar.
This will all come to a head at some point, and Rodgers' future will be made clear. We may not know what the four-time NFL MVP is thinking, but it seems we now know how the Packers feel.
