Aaron Rodgers reportedly 'frustrated' over his lack of influence on Packers moves

Aaron Rodgers reportedly 'frustrated' over his lack of influence on Packers moves

"Specifically, the sources said Rodgers has lingering discontent being completely cut out of discussions that resulted in the departures of wideout Jordy Nelson and quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt", Robinson said. "We've had a lot of success here - you've got to trust the process".

"So that's the toughest part about the whole thing, is losing guys over the years - the Jordys, the James Jones, the A.J. Hawks, the John Kuhns, the Julius Peppers, guys you get really close to. So I think you just act accordingly in those situations". "Talked to Aaron afterward", Gutekunst said that night.

In his report, Robinson noted that Rodgers is in the sixth year of a seven-year deal that now makes him relatively underpaid, given his outstanding play and the lucrative contracts recently handed out to the likes of Matthew Stafford, Jimmy Garoppolo and Kirk Cousins.

As talk of a new contract between Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers has quieted, there is growing frustration from the quarterback about his lack of influence on the team's roster moves, according to a report from Yahoo!

"Ultimately like the last time, obviously it was large financial numbers".

"That's the disappointment, is when you get close to your teammates and they're not here anymore. Again, the organization is making decisions they feel like are in the best interest of our team and you've got to trust the process". That could change soon with Rodgers in need of a contract extension with only two years left on his deal.

A respected National Football League journalist reported Monday that Aaron Rodgers is feeling "discontent" toward Packers management, with the negative feelings emerging just as he is engaging in talks about a possible contract extension. I have a fantastic agent who takes care of anything associated with my contract, and there's just nothing to report right now.

The guess here is that the sides mend fences and Rodgers is placated in some way with more input.

"Obviously we'd like to lock something in at some point".

Rodgers has already said something to that effect this offseason, as Yahoo noted that he made an appearance on Milwaukee radio station 102.9 The Hog (my bold added for emphasis) and said this: "I think it's pretty clear that players play and coaches coach and personnel people make their decisions. I've said many times I'd love to finish my career here so there's more than mutual interest on both sides", said Rodgers.
