Green Bay Packers team president Mark Murphy addressed his team’s ongoing issues with quarterback Aaron Rodgers in his monthly Q&A column on the team’s official website.

Murphy acknowledged the issues, confirmed he and both Brian Gutekunst and Matt LaFleur have visited Rodgers in person during the offseason in an attempt to fix the problems, and committed to the NFL MVP as the team’s quarterback in “2021 and beyond.”

From Murphy: “This is an issue that we have been working on for several months. Brian Gutekunst, Matt LaFleur and I have flown out on a number of occasions to meet with Aaron. We are very much aware of Aaron’s concerns and have been working with him (and his agent Dave Dunn) to resolve them. We remain committed to Aaron in 2021 and beyond. He is not only a tremendously talented player, but has developed into a true leader for us. The relationship that Aaron has forged with Matt and the other offensive coaches has propelled us to the brink of the Super Bowl in two straight years. We look forward to competing for another Super Bowl championship with Aaron as our leader.”

At the very least, Murphy’s statement is confirmation of major issues between the quarterback and the franchise, and also confirmation of the work still required to mend the relationship between leaders in the organization and Rodgers.

The Packers, at least publicly, have remained confident in Rodgers remaining the quarterback in Green Bay in 2021.
