With the Packers mandatory minicamp scheduled to start Tuesday, Aaron Rodgers would be eligible to be fined $93,085 for not attending, though Green Bay could issue him an excused absence, which also would excuse him from the fines. It is an option the team has discussed.

If the Packers give Rodgers an excused absence when he blows off minicamp, then this situation is officially out of control.
Not only does it send the wrong message, but it pretty much tells the entire team that Rodgers is running the show.
If a running back didn’t show up, would he be fined? Almost certainly. Apparently, Aaron Rodgers is not just feuding with the team, but calling the shots.

If the Packers want to be taken seriously and set a tone, then they can’t let Rodgers just walk all over them. It’s that simple.

Either trade him, fine him or recognize that you’ve lost control of what’s going on. To let him do whatever he wants without a punishment is the worst option on the table.
