Aaron Rodgers reportedly turned down a huge contract offer from the Green Bay Packers.

According to BroBible, The Athletic reported that Rodgers was offered a deal that would have made him the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

However, the NFL MVP turned it down because he can’t stand general manager Brian Gutekunst.

The issues between Gutekunst and Rodgers have been all over the news the past week, and the star passer wants to find a new team.

It’s also been reported that Rodgers wants Gutekunst fired in order for him to return to the team.

If Rodgers really turned down a deal to make him the highest-paid player at his position in the NFL to remain with Green Bay, then you have to believe that it’s officially over.

That would seem to be as good of a signal as any that Rodgers really has zero interest in returning the franchise.

The question now is what will Rodgers do if he’s serious about not returning. Assuming the Packers refuse to trade him, he can retire. It’ll cost him $23 million, but it’s an option on the table.

Buckle up because this situation will only get wilder from here!
