The Packers offseason program started with a rumor of a rift between Aaron Rodgers and the front office. A report by Yahoo Sports indicated Rodgers wasn't happy that he wasn't consulted in the decisions that led to the departures of receiver Jordy Nelson and quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt. Later in the day, Rodgers admitted it was tough to say goodbye to some of his friends. However, he downplayed the idea of any frustration.

"I think I know my role, and that's to play as well as I possibly can at quarterback. There's decisions that are going to be made from a personal-standpoint, that's the toughest part...Those are team decisions. You just know your role and your responsibility. You try to deal with it the best you can." 

Rodgers did not voice any frustration in being left out of the decision-making process this offseason.

"You just have to trust the process. As we've talked about over the years, this process works and it has worked for Mike (McCarthy) for a number of years. Obviously, that's why he's still here in his 13th season. We've had a lot of success here. I've just got to trust the process."

Rodgers' relationship with the front office is important as the two sides work on a potential contract extension. Rodgers has two years left on his current deal. The Packers have been vocal about their desire to work out an extension this offseason. Rodgers made it clear he is still hoping to get something done.

"I want to finish my career here. I've said that a number of times. Still have two years left on my deal. We'll see what happens this offseason."

At this time, Rodgers said there was nothing to report about any developments regarding his contract.
