The Super Bowl-winning quarterback did not report to voluntary OTAs or mandatory minicamp and it’s unclear when – or if – he’ll make an appearance in Green Bay.
“With my situation, look it’s never been about the draft pick, picking Jordan (Love),” Rodgers told Kenny Mayne earlier this summer, via ESPN. “I love Jordan; he’s a great kid. [We’ve had] a lot of fun to work together. Love the coaching staff, love my teammates, love the fan base in Green Bay. An incredible 16 years. It’s just kind of about a philosophy and 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.”
While the Packers reportedly hope to mend the relationship, Jay Glazer reported on Wednesday that Rodgers still wants out.
“I know he still wants out. Without a doubt. Absolutely. Still wants out,” Glazer told Pat McAfee.

If Rodgers is traded, there appears to be one clear favorite.
According to NFL insider Benjamin Allbright, the Denver Broncos have roughly a 60 percent chance of landing Rodgers.

The Broncos have consistently been mentioned as a possible destination for Rodgers since the trade rumors surfaced.
Denver could become a legitimate Super Bowl contender with a move for Rodgers.
