Aaron Rodgers Reportedly Frustrated For Lack Of Say In Green Bay Packers Moves

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is reportedly frustrated for his role, or the lack thereof, in offseason acquisition and moves within the organization, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports.

Yahoo Sports! Sports and investigative reporter Charles Robinson cited two anonymous sources in saying that the Rodgers feels that he “he should have earned a voice by now” when it comes to major decisions made in regard to personnel on the team.

“Specifically, the sources said Rodgers has lingering discontent being completely cut out of discussions that resulted in the departures of wideout Jordy Nelson and quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt,” Robinson said. “And it apparently is entering his thought process when it comes to his next contract extension.”

In the Van Pelt departure specifically, Rodgers felt that is was a big personnel change that occurred without even consulting him.

This is a trend that we have seen in sports for a long time, and there really is no right answer. When it comes down to it, the sports industry is a business and things like this happen; players get traded away even when they don’t want to and front offices make unilateral decisions to do so without consulting the teammates.

At the end of the day, the players get paid to go out on the field and perform; the front office and employees for the organization get paid to make the executive decisions and form the team.

Should there be an overlap? It really varies on a case by case basis. However, it seems that if a player is so affected by a trade or move in the offseason, they should have some say in the decision since it affects them the most.
