Aaron Rodgers doesn't appear to be sweating his prolonged absence from the Green Bay Packers.

As the star quarterback prepares to participate in The Match on July 6 with Tom Brady, Phil Mickelson, and Bryson DeChambeau, he reflected on a peaceful offseason away from football.

"It's been one of those quiet offseasons you dream about where you can kind of just go through your process on your own, quietly," Rodgers said. "That's all you can ask for as an older player in the league and someone who's been around for a long time and just enjoys that time to yourself, just relax, to not be bothered, to not have any obligations or anything going on.

"I think that's what this offseason has been about. It's been about really enjoying my time, spending it where I want to spend it, and not feeling like I have to go anywhere, not having any responsibilities."

Rodgers skipped Green Bay's mandatory minicamp last week amid a dispute with the organization. His frustration with the Packers organization reportedly stems from issues with general manager Brian Gutekunst and the front office's philosophy.

The reigning MVP was also absent from voluntary OTAs while on vacation in Hawaii.

Rodgers didn't reveal if he plans to attend the Packers' training camp, which begins on July 26.
