Aaron Rodgers has officially started his wait with the Green Bay Packers, and boss Matt LaFleur will face a daily storm of questions over the star quarterback’s absence. We now have a pretty good idea of how you plan to deal with them.
LaFleur was asked Tuesday whether Rodgers’ absence was excused or whether he will be threatened. The coach categorized the situation as “team activity” and said very little.
LaFleur said he is still optimistic that the problems between Rodgers and the Packers will be resolved. He added that he has no worries for Rodgers who is not ready for the start of the regular season if he misses the season time.
The Packers have the option to fine Rodgers more than $ 90,000 for each day they miss mandatory minicamp, or they can categorize absences as excuses. They will be required to pay $ 50,000 for each day of training camp missing.
There is some thought that the Packers it might be audacious for Rodgers not to present himself at all. This will allow them to collect fines, recover bonus money, see what they have in Jordan Love and potentially exchange Rodgers at some point.
Rodgers has given no indication that he is open to playing in Green Bay this season.
