Even despite the blockbuster trade of seven-time Pro Bowl wideout Julio Jones, the Green Bay Packers and their very public feud with quarterback Aaron Rodgers remains the biggest storyline of the NFL offseason. Rodgers has been vocally displeased with his longtime franchise's handling of his contract and uncertain future in Green Bay.

As the feud rambles on, it's certainly approaching a comedic level. Honestly, it's sort of follows a script you'd imagine on a TV sitcom. Well, the drama ensues with the latest comments from Packers team president Mark Murphy.

Aaron Rodgers Packers News

During a recent event at Lambeau Field this past week, Murphy went on to call his three-time MVP quarterback "a complicated fella."

Honestly, that's all you really need to know about what Murphy said. No amount of context allows the Packers front-office man to retract this type of comment. It's easy to imagine that his recent words will continue adding fuel to the figurative fire already taking place in Green Bay.

The feud has stirred up a ton of news and rumors this NFL offseason. Meanwhile, backup quarterback Jordan Love has been taking QB1 reps at Packers minicamp while Rodgers remains absent. Love got off to a slow start but was firing on all cylinders to end the week.

While the recent performances of Love are encouraging, the Packers will hold onto their best chance at winning next year's Super Bowl with Rodgers under center. Currently, the Packers hold +1700 odds to win the 2021 Super Bowl, according to the latest NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook. Expect those odds to seriously fall if Rodgers ends up on another team before Week 1.
