Reports: Rodgers turned down massive offer from Packers, 'still wants out'

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio says Rodgers "still wants out" of Green Bay.

Aaron Rodgers turned down a contract offer from the Packers that would've made him the highest-paid player in the NFL, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Schefter said Rodgers was offered a two-year extension that would have kept him signed with Green Bay for five more seasons. Rodgers has three years left on his contract and is due an average annual salary of approximately $33.5 million.

Becoming the highest-paid player in the NFL means he would've surpassed Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes' $45 million average annual salary. But he apparently turned that down. 

What's more is this from Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio: "He still wants out. That hasn’t changed."

In a separate story, Florio notes that a two-year extension worth $50 million (hypothetically) is meaningless to Rodgers unless he has structure built into his contract that doesn't allow the Packers to cut him. Florio believes Rodgers wants guaranteed money. 

The Packers begin training camp Wednesday, July 28, meaning the countdown to a resolution – Rodgers staying in Green Bay or being traded – is likely nearing the buzzer.
