Packers QB Aaron Rodgers living his best life in Hawaii is a vibe
As the offseason lingers on in the NFL, there still appears to be no resolution between the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers. The superstar quarterback and reigning MVP have been at odds for an array of reasons that made their way to the light on NFL Draft night back in April. Now, Rodgers appears to be living his best life in Hawaii while on vacation.

Who knew Rodgers could strum the strings like that? He looks relaxed as could be. That certainly isn’t the case for the Packers in Green Bay.
Rodgers reportedly has made it clear to Green Bay’s front office that he wants to play elsewhere. The issues date back and stem from multiple avenues.
From cutting guys that Rodgers had praised like Jake Kumerow to drafting Jordan Love in 2020 to Brian Gutekunst and company being reluctant to rework Rodgers’ contract after his MVP-caliber season, it’s a mess for the Packers right now.
After news had leaked that Rodgers wanted out and had grown tired of the Green Bay front office, Gutekunst and Mark Murphy went into damage control mode to try and pick up the pieces.
There’s no concrete answer to this dilemma yet, with head coach Matt LaFleur still saying all the right things about wanting Rodgers back with the Packers for a long time.
June 1 is a date to keep in mind. If the Packers were to part ways with their legendary franchise quarterback, doing so after June 1 would limit the hit to the cap Green Bay would take for trading No. 12. Perhaps there is a compromise still possible for the two sides as well to keep Rodgers in a Packers uniform. For now, the MVP is living it up in Hawaii and could not look more calm or more happy.
