Packers situation about ‘a philosophy,’ not Jordan Love

Rodgers: Packers circumstance about ‘a philosophy,’ not Jordan Love initially appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Aaron Rodgers made a look Monday, however it wasn’t at Packers OTAs.

After being a no-show for the start of Green Bay’s voluntary offseason exercises previously in the day, Rodgers was a visitor on “SportsCenter” for ESPN anchor Kenny Mayne’s last program.

Rodgers at first avoided concerns about his circumstance with the Packers, however he did open when Mayne asked him whether he’s requiring a trade.

“With my situation, look, it’s never been about the draft pick, picking Jordan (Love),” Rodgers stated. “I love Jordan, he’s a great kid. (It’s) a lot of fun to work together. I love the coaching staff, I love my teammates, love the fan base in Green Bay. An incredible, incredible 16 years. 

“It’s just kind of about a philosophy and, you know, maybe forgetting that it is about the people that make the thing go. It’s about character, it’s about culture, it’s about doing things the right way. A lot of this was put in motion last year and the wrench was just kind of thrown into it when I won MVP and played the way I played last year. This is just kind of, I think, the spill-out of all that. But it is about the people and that’s the most important thing.”

These were Rodgers’ very first public remarks because a number of reports appeared in late April detailing the 2020 MVP’s misery with the Packers company and desire to proceed. 

A Few Of Rodgers’ disappointment was reported to have actually come from Green Bay picking quarterback Jordan Love in the preliminary of the 2020 draft. Rodgers rejected that Monday while stating that he liked the young signal caller, in addition to the rest of his Packers colleagues and the training personnel.

Rodgers didn’t use any appreciation for Green Bay’s front workplace, who he might have been describing with his “philosophy” remarks. ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio reported that Rodgers “doesn’t like anyone” in the Packers’ front workplace “for a variety of reasons,” while Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reported that Rodgers desires the company to fire basic supervisor Brian Gutekunst. 

Gutekunst and the Packers have actually stated they won’t trade Rodgers, however that obviously hasn’t sufficed to solve the circumstance. And till the Rodgers-Packers circumstance is fixed, it will stay a substantial story.
