Green Bay Packers CEO Mark Murphy caused quite a stir last time he commented on the Aaron Rodgers situation, so when the subject was brought up again this week, he kept quiet.
During a Tech Summit at Lambeau Field on Monday, Murphy was asked a general question about the NFL draft the next month and free agency when he interrupted with the obvious.
«Yeah, and you know, we don’t really have any other news,» he said sarcastically.

«Yeah, I mean, unless things don’t go our way,» Murphy said.

«I was interested in knowing where [the Packers] I’d be in mentally, and all they told me the week I was in Green Bay was, ‘Take as long as you want, and we want you to retire a Packer. You want to come back and play, obviously the door is wide open,'» Rodgers said. «So, that was the information that was going around. Now, when I came out of the darkness, something changed. I’m not exactly sure what that was, but something changed.»
No deal has been reached, but all signs point to Rodgers joining the Jets for the 2023 season.
