Though Aaron Rodgers' unhappiness could lead to more contentiousness in regards to a contract extension, the Packers have almost all the leverage.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is reportedly frustrated with his team's decisions or more so that the team hasn't consulted him on numerous personnel decisions.

 

The lack of communication is reportedly causing tension which has left the future Hall of Famer "frustrated" and "emotional," according to Bleacher Report.

Rodgers apparently wasn't pleased with the release of (now Raiders) receiver Jordy Nelson and quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt. 

 

"I thought [Van Pelt's release] was an interesting change, really without consulting me," Rodgers said in a radio interview. "There's a close connection between quarterback and quarterback coach. And that was an interesting decision."

 

He spoke with ESPN on Tuesday and stated, "You have to trust the process ... and the process works...[The Packers] are paying me to play quarterback... and there's interest on both side in getting (a contract extension) done."

Hopefully, Rodgers is ultimately happy playing for the Packers because the franchise doesn't necessarily have to bend to his will.  

 

The 34-year-old has two years remaining on his current deal. If the sides can't reach an agreement for an extension, they can apply the franchise tag in 2020 and 2021. Rodgers will be 38 years old by the end of this scenario.
