While we await the next step in the ongoing Aaron Rodgers saga, there's been an incredible new development with the Green Bay Packers telling their side of the story. According to them, Rodgers completely blew them off this offseason! 

According to Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst, his calls to Rodgers went unanswered while saying he attempted to reach out "many times". 

"Those never transpired," Gutekunst explained from the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix.

"So we went through his representatives to try to talk to him (about) where were we going with our team," Gutekunst added. "At that point, they informed us that he would like to be traded to the Jets."

"Our inability to reach him or for him to respond in any way," continued. "I think at that point, I had to do my job and kind of reach out (to other teams) and understand that a trade could be possible and see who was interested."

Rodgers himself has not been shy about stating his desire to suit up for the New York Jets this season, but explained during an appearance on "The Pat McAfee Show" that it was the Packers who were holding things up. 

In the meantime, it certainly appears as though we've entered the official start of the Jordan Love era with the Packers.
