From what I understand, they haven’t answered anything. They haven’t engaged, they haven’t answered. I know there have been trade calls, but I don’t believe there’s been any trade talk.
Even though Rodgers wants out, the management is doing everything in their power to making their winning card stay. The deal for Rodgers to be on the Packers ensures that he stays for 3 seasons, but the terms of his contract make it possible for him to be traded before that.
