So the expectation, barring any developments overnight, is the NFL MVP won’t be reporting for minicamp.
Both ESPN and the NFL Network are reporting that the reigning MVP will stay away from Lambeau Field, making him officially a hold-out for the first time in his career.
Green Bay could opt to fine Rodgers $93,085 for his absences along with the $500,000 he's already being docked for missing voluntary workouts.
Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers is not expected to attend Green Bay’s mandatory minicamp that starts Tuesday, per sources. Green Bay could opt to fine him $93,085 for his absences or it could make it an excused absence and waive the fine. But Rodgers is not expected there.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 7, 2021
If Rodgers and the team can resolve their issues, they can waive some of the fines, however those are set in stone if he misses training camp next month.
