Don’t worry too much Green Bay Packers fans, because it looks more likely than not that your star quarterback will still be with the franchise to start the 2021 season.

Despite rumours suggesting 2020 NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers is disgruntled with the Packers franchise and asking to be dealt elsewhere, the team’s front office has decided to squash those rumours with a definitive statement.

“We are not going to trade Aaron Rodgers” said Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst.

“I’m not going to speak for Aaron, but I think obviously we have a really good team and I do think he’ll play for us again…The value that he adds to our football is really immeasurable, you know what I mean? He brings so much to the table not only as a player but as a leader. He’s so important to his teammates, to his coaches, so yeah, that’s the goal.”

Rodgers, 37, was a first round draft pick by the Packers back in 2005 and has spent his entire 16-year NFL career with the franchise. During that span, he has been selected to nine Pro Bowls, has won three MVPs, and led the team to a Super Bowl title in February 2011.
