Aaron Rodgers doesn't appear to be sweating the Packers' Day 3 picks at the NFL Draft.
Aaron Rodgers doesn’t appear to be sweating the Packers’ Day 3 picks at the NFL Draft.
The star quarterback instead is taking in the Kentucky Derby with fiancee Shailene Woodley, Packers offensive tackle David Bakhtiari and actor Miles Teller, among others. Bakhtari’s fiancee, Frankie Shebby, posted the group photo to Instagram on Saturday morning.
It comes as Rodgers is trying to force his way off the Packers over lingering frustration with their decision to draft his heir apparent, Jordan Love, a year ago.
The Packers have maintained they have no intention of trading Rodgers, who has told members of the organization and teammates that he does not plan on returning to Green Bay. NFL Network reported Rodgers would consider retirement if the Packers refuse to trade him.
“I certainly look back to last year’s draft and just kind of maybe some of the communication issues we could have done better,” GM Brian Gutekunst said this week of the decision to trade up and select Love.
“There’s no doubt about it. The draft’s an interesting thing. It can kind of unfold differently than you think it’s going to unfold, and it happens pretty fast. But certainly, I think, looking back on it sitting where we sit today, there could have been some communication things we did better.”
The 37-year-old Rodgers has not publicly about the situation. He clearly has more important things on his schedule.
