Packers QB Aaron Rodgers reports to Training Camp after standoff with front office
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has arrived in Titletown, signaling the MVP is ready to take the field for Training Camp.
QB 1 reported to Lambeau Field Tuesday morning with the rest of the veteran Packers players. He was outfitted with sunglasses, a “The Office” t-shirt and backpack.
“Aaron Force 1” arrived at Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport at about 11 p.m. Monday. Action 2 News captured video of him stepping off of a private jet and driving away in a black SUV.
This appears to end a months-long standoff between Rodgers and the Packers front office. The first practice is Wednesday. It is open to the public, weather permitting.
Several reporters captured Rodgers’s arrival at Lambeau Field Tuesday morning.
This is Rodgers’ 17th season with the Packers. The team says that surpasses the record he shared with Bart Starr and Brett Favre.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Packers and Rodgers have agreed to a deal in which the 2023 year in No. 12′s contract would be voided with no tags in the future. That would give Rodgers freedom to play elsewhere after this season. Schefter says the two sides reached an agreement on terms over the weekend.
There is also reporting that Rodgers wants WR Randall Cobb to return to the Packers.
We’ll break it all down for you Tuesday at 7 p.m. for Cover 2 Camp Edition on WBAY.
