Packers president Mark Murphy answers questions on Aaron Rodgers situation

Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy said the team granted permission for Aaron Rodgers to speak with the New York Jets and confirmed the team would honor a trade request from Rodgers during interviews with local Green Bay media during the girl’s high school state basketball tournament.

Rodgers spoke with the Jets earlier this week, including an in-person meeting in California.

Murphy said the Packers are searching for a “resolution” that works for both sides and is a “win-win situation” during an interview with WLUK-TV FOX 11.

Four-time MVP. It’s trying to find what he wants and what we want, and hopefully we can find a win-win situation.”

Reading between the lines, Murphy sounded as if he finally revealed the team’s preference for Rodgers to move on this offseason.
