'We remain committed': Packers CEO Mark Murphy responds to Rodgers' concerns

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) --- Green Bay Packers' President and CEO Mark Murphy recently responded to reports of quarterback Aaron Rodgers not wanting to return to the team. 

Murphy writes a monthly column "Murphy Takes 5" on the first Saturday of every month. The column discusses Packers topics and answers five fan questions. On May 1st, Murphy addressed Rodgers' concerns, stating it is an issue that the team has been working on for several months. 

"Brian Gutekunst, Matt LaFleur and I have flown out on a number of occasions to meet with Aaron," Murphy wrote. "We are very much aware of Aaron's concerns and have been working with him (and his agent Dave Dunn) to resolve them. We remain committed to Aaron in 2021 and beyond. He is not only a tremendously talented player, but has developed into a true leader for us."

Murphy said the team is looking forward to competing for another Super Bowl championship with Rodgers as its leader. 

"The relationship that Aaron has forged with Matt and the other offensive coaches has propelled us to the brink of the Super Bowl in two straight years," he wrote.

Murphy also noted how the team drafted cornerback Eric Stokes from the University of Georgia.

"We had him rated very highly and I saw a lot of smiles on the faces of both scouts and coaches when the pick was announced," Murphy wrote. "The way our game has evolved, you never have enough good cornerbacks."
