Schefter: 49ers inquired about Aaron Rodgers because QB does not want to return to Packers

Apr 29, 2021 at 12:25 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers reached out to the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday about possibly trading for Aaron Rodgers. Today, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported the reason. It's because the nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback and three-time league MVP does not want to return to the Packers.


That certainly explains why the 49ers reached out. The team is good about doing its due diligence. San Francisco owns the No. 3 overall pick, with the start of the draft just hours away.

Schefter added on ESPN that Packers officials have been trying to meet with Rodgers to convince him to change his mind.

"To date, Aaron Rodgers has not budged," Schefter said. "And so we have standoff here that nobody knows exactly where it's going. And thus, the 49ers called the Green Bay Packers last night, and the Packers said, 'We're not trading him.'

"And the Los Angeles Rams called in January, before they traded for Matthew Stafford, to see if they would trade him, and they were told, 'No.'"

Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst issued a statement saying that the team remains committed to Rodgers in 2021 and beyond. However, some within the organization aren't sure if Rodgers will ever return.

Earlier this week, on a segment of Game Theory, Cynthia Frelund gave her argument as for why the San Francisco 49ers will make the playoffs in 2021 after missing out in 2020. Frelund attributed their recent Super Bowl appearance as a factor in her decision as well as the multitude of injuries that affected the team last season. "They were in the Super Bowl just like five minutes ago and they had a whole bunch of injuries, but they get all those players back." Looking at the offensive side of the ball, Frelund highlighted star tight end George Kittle, who, according to Next Gen Stats, has averaged 8.0 yards after the catch per reception since 2018, which is the highest in the NFL given a minimum of 25 receptions. In addition to Kittle,
