As expected, Aaron Rodgers did not present for the start of Packers minicamp Tuesday. Now it is officially held while the saga continues between him and the front office led by Brian Gutekunst.
Rodgers has already spent $ 500K bonus missing the team’s volunteer work. Now, he could lose $ 93K per day from the three-day minicamp. However, the Packers plan to give up the fines in an effort to smooth things over with their franchise star.
However, Rodgers ’position has not changed. The incumbent MVP wants to take his talents elsewhere, which would leave the choice of the first round of 2020 Jordan Love o Blake Bortles as the No. 1 QB in Green Bay. Gutekunst, president Mark Murphy and coach Matt LaFleur say it won’t happen. So, with that said, Rodgers has officially started his holdout.
It would be a shock to see Rodgers extend his delay until Week 1, but if he does, it will cost him. If he stays at home all year, the 37-year-old will lose his $ 14.7 million salary, 6.8 million list bonus and will be required to repay $ 23 million of his signing bonus.
