Packers GM Brian Gutekunst Not Aware if QB Aaron Rodgers is Upset with Team

If there’s a burgeoning feud with his star quarterback, Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst is unaware of any internal strife, Ryan Wood of USA Today Network-Wisconsin reports.

Gutekunst said Monday he has seen reports of Aaron Rodgers’ discontentment regarding a lack of involvement with personnel decisions. It’s something Rodgers downplayed last week, saying he understands his job is to play quarterback. Rodgers also acknowledged disappointment with receiver Jordy Nelson’s release.

“I’ve certainly seen what’s been reported,” Gutekunst said. “Nobody has voiced any frustrations to me or anything like that.”

Rodgers has lost his favorite receiver and quarterbacks coach this offseason. On the day Nelson was released, Gutekunst said he informed his quarterback only after the decision. Rodgers also mentioned earlier this offseason he wasn’t consulted with the decision to let quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt’s contract expire.

“I always want to listen to any of our players, our coaches, our scouts,” Gutekunst said. “Ultimately, at the end of the day, it’s my job to do the task at hand, which is make decisions for the Green Bay Packers on our roster. But I’ve always felt like I was a good listener. I’ve been listening a lot the last couple weeks and will continue to do so.”
