Green Bay Packers CEO Mark Murphy acknowledged that Aaron Rodgers is upset with the franchise, but the executive believes the two parties can save their deteriorating relationship.

"This is an issue that we have been working on for several months," Murphy wrote on Packers.com. "(General manager) Brian Gutekunst, (head coach) Matt LaFleur, and I have flown out on a number of occasions to meet with Aaron. We are very much aware of Aaron's concerns and have been working with him (and agent Dave Dunn) to resolve them. We remain committed to Aaron in 2021 and beyond."

Rodgers, the reigning league MVP, reportedly has no intention of returning to the Packers after reaching a boiling point with management. The 37-year-old would apparently consider retirement if the Packers refuse to trade him.

In the 2020 draft, Green Bay traded up in the first round to select another quarterback, Jordan Love. The move caught Rodgers off guard, as the organization failed to notify its future Hall of Fame passer before the pick was announced.

The Packers also allegedly haven't incorporated Rodgers' opinions in their decision-making processes throughout his career. Despite Rodgers' prowess, Green Bay hasn't been to the Super Bowl since the 2010-11 season.

"He is not only a tremendously talented player, but has developed into a true leader for us," Murphy continued. "The relationship that Aaron has forged with Matt and the other offensive coaches has propelled us to the brink of the Super Bowl in two straight years. We look forward to competing for another Super Bowl championship with Aaron as our leader."
