Sports NFL Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers could be heading for difficult contract negotiations, amid reports the quarterback was distinctly unhappy with the franchise’s decision to make major plans without consulting him. During the offseason, the Packers parted ways with wideout Jordy Nelson and quarterback coach Alex Van Pelt, with Rodgers reportedly completely excluded from the discussions.
