Mark Murphy: Nothing new to update on Aaron Rodgers

Packers CEO Mark Murphy has made some interesting comments about Aaron Rodgers this offseason, saying the will-he-or-won’t-he play questions surrounding Rodgers have “divided our fan base” and that Rodgers is a “complicated fella.” But more recently, Murphy has stayed mum about Rodgers.

That included Friday’s Zoom session in which Murphy went over the Packers’ financial situation from the 2020 season. Murphy was asked about Rodgers, but Murphy didn’t have much to say.

“I appreciate the question,” Murphy said, via SI.com. “This is really limited to questions regarding financial statements. I would just say there’s nothing new to update on the issue that you raised.”

Rodgers is from all accounts unhappy with the Packers, but he hasn’t said much publicly, and at this point it appears likely that he will show up to training camp.

  1. “Rodgers is from all accounts unhappy with the Packers”

    I have never heard or read anyone with any credibility, or that actually knows Aaron personally, say he is unhappy with the Packers.

    Tom Brady said in a interview that Aaron was also a part of: “He is unhappy with his boss”

    Aaron Rodgers:”That’s a projection Tom. I have never said I am unhappy with my boss.”

    Marcedes Lewis who is as close to Aaron as anyone on the team besides Bakh, said when asked if Aaron will be at training camp: “I’m hopeful. I think so. Hoping to see him on the 26th.”

    The official vets report day is the 27th. I’m sure Marcedes has spoke to Aaron, and the plan is for Aaron to arrive the 26th.

    I’ll be seeing them both on the 28th at 10:00 a.m. on Ray Nitschke Field.

    Let’s do this!🤙👏

  2. Rodgers will show up and play. He is a diva, and loves the attention. After all, has he ever dated just a pretty girl that was just a nobody? No, he goes for the attention. Sleep tight Packer fans, your boy will show up and be a grouch through out the whole year.

  3. Rodgers is first and foremost a professional on and off the field. He understands the business side. It may not be the way he would manage things, but that’s not his role. He’s disappointed for his own reasons, and we may never know fully what those reasons are. Even if he pulls a “Barry Sanders,” I’ll still admire the guy and support his replacement, just as I did when Rodgers replaced Favre. Let’s get this show on the road. I don’t care who is driving.

  4. He will be there. He will throw many touchdowns for the Packers. That’s all fans should care about. Not about who said what. Not about his fiancé. Not about what he did or didn’t do in the offseason. As the old saying goes, “keep it simple, stupid.”

  5. I’m going to the shareholders meeting and I am demanding answers from Murphy and fire directly.

  6. Does he get “injured” in the preseason or the first regular season game is the real question…

  7. So the Packers are losing money and the CEO can’t make any forecasts at all about its forthcoming fiscal performance because it can’t account for its biggest company asset? Heck of a job.

  8. “Rodgers is from all accounts unhappy with the Packers” ___ As will any player eventually when forced to live in Green Bay. It makes living in buffalo look appealing.

  9. He’s got 10 more days of summer vacation. Let him enjoy his time away. And his real boss are the Packer fans who own the stock. Of course he has no problems with them.

  10. Rodgers tried to get the veteran reporting date changed to August 1 as part of the NFLPA. Don’t be surprised if he makes the team sweat for a few days before reporting in early August.

  11. I am always amazed of NFL fans lack of interest in the Packers financial release. As Florio notes, you can extrapolate a lot of information from this event, regardless of the team you root for.

  12. As will any player eventually when forced to live in Green Bay. It makes living in buffalo look appealing.

    Our bridges are sturdy though

    “Rodgers is from all accounts unhappy with the Packers”

    I have never heard or read anyone with any credibility, or that actually knows Aaron personally, say he is unhappy with the Packers.//////

    If Rodgers is so happy with the packers then why did the Murphy,the GM and the Head Coach fly out to LA to meet with Aaron this off season? Not a typical move wouldn’t you agree. Also why then did Rodgers leave a half a million dollars on the table by not showing for OTA’s? Because he is happy with the packers?
    I think he will play for the packers this year but to say he doesn’t have issues with someone in the front office is to ignore too much.
