It’s been more than a month since the quarterback Aaron Rodgers give the high note of the low season in National Football League (NFL), asking Green Bay Packers be exchanged after 15 years, and the positions to reestablish the professional relationship are not yet close.
In fact, the president of the institution, Mark Murphy, invoked the late CEO, Ted Thompson, responsible for signing the player in 2005 to describe him as a difficult person to handle, as stated in conversation with the chain NBC 26.
“I often remember Ted Thompson, as most of you know, just a great general manager, passed away last year. Excuse me, earlier this year, I spoke often about Aaron, who is a competitor, and it was not like that. Not just Aaron, a lot of different players. He would say ‘He’s a complicated guy’. So, I’ll just say that “, assured the manager of the Packers.
Green Bay Packers acknowledge “complicated” situation with Aaron Rodgers
It is not the first time this week that Murphy refers to the absence of the training of the quarterback, who will have to pay a fine of almost $93 thousand dollars, for not showing up to the mandatory minicamp, further increasing the gap between both parties.
It was last Saturday that the Chief Executive Officer of the Packers assured that “the situation we are currently going through with Aaron Rodgers has divided our fan base, but we are committed to solving things “, which finally caused the player to not show up, in response to these sayings.
Thus, there are more doubts as to whether the quarterback will play the next NFL season, anyway, Green Bay is already preparing to Jordan Love so that, before any eventuality, he is his replacement on offense.
