Reports: Aaron Rodgers set for at least one more year with the Packers

Both sides showing signs of optimism just before training camp begins.

Minnesota's (and the rest of the NFC North's) dream scenario of Aaron Rodgers being out of the division doesn't appear to be coming true – not this year at least.

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, Rodgers and the Packers are working on a deal that would have him return to the team and set up his departure after this season.

Earlier this morning, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Rodgers "has indicated to people close to him that he does plan to play for GB this season." 

Rapoport is less definitive however on the details of the deal between the Packers and Rodgers as it pertains to his future.

The news comes just two days before the Packers open training camp, and on the same day that Packers front office brass held their annual shareholder meeting at Lambeau Field. 

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said he is "hopeful" Rodgers and the team come to a resolution, while team president Mark Murphy said "We want Aaron back."

“We want Aaron back," Murphy said, via NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. "We’re committed to (Rodgers) for 2021 and beyond. He’s our leader and we look forward to winning another Super Bowl with him."

None of Monday's news is too unexpected considering Rodgers and Packers wide receiver Davante Adams posted the same photo of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen from "The Last Dance" on their Instagram pages last week – suggesting that 2021 could be their final season together in Green Bay. 

It was reported last week that Adams and the Packers are in a "bad place" after failing to reach a contract extension, with Adams reportedly wanting to be the NFL's highest-paid wide receiver.
