Aaron Rodgers: My role is to play quarterback

Aaron Rodgers: My role is to play quarterback

"I know he's thinking about that stuff when it comes to the next contract because he should have earned a voice by now", the source said. You just have to trust the process. "I don't want to speak on Alex's, his thoughts, but this is a moment he's prepared himself for". "You know, there's decisions that are going to be made, from a personal standpoint that's the toughest part, you know, you're in this business for a long time, and you start relationships with coaches and players and as you get older, and I knew this as a young player, if I had the possibility and success to play a long time I'd probably outlive a lot of close friends in this business". Team president Mark Murphy replaced general manager Ted Thompson with Brian Gutekunst, while coach Mike McCarthy fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers and offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett as well as several other assistants. Robinson said that Rodgers was frustrated and emotional that he was not consulted in the release of Nelson [VIDEO] and Van Pelt. They went 7-9, playing half the season without Rodgers because of his broken right collarbone.

Rodgers passed for 1,675 yards, 16 touchdowns and six interceptions over seven games this past season, his 13th in the NFL.

Robinson notes that the Packers don't really have to do an extension since there are two more years left on Rodgers' deal and they could franchise him for two years after that, giving them leverage in negotiations.

"Ultimately like the last time, obviously it was large financial numbers".

"That's the disappointment, is when you get close to your teammates and they're not here anymore". The Packers did not renew his contract when it expired after the 2017 season and he was subsequently hired as quarterbacks coach for the Bengals. "Again, the organization is making decisions they feel like are in the best interest of our team and you've got to trust the process".

Rodgers and Graham have known each other for years, but will be learning a revamped offense together. He said all the right things. "I think that's obviously frustrating and it's going to keep coming out".

While Graham and Rodgers try to build chemistry, the team and Rodgers will try to hammer out a contract extension.

"I'm under contract for the next two years", Rodgers said. The team has made it public knowledge that they'd love to do that.

"I think there's interest on both sides in getting something done", said Rodgers, who has two years remaining on the five-year, $110 million extension he signed in April 2013 - a deal that made him the league's highest-paid player at the time.

"Well, my quarterback coach didn't get retained", Rodgers said when asked for specifics.
