Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy has indicated that his team is ready to move on from the Aaron Rodgers era should the player decide not to remain with the team.
While Murphy did not rule out the possibility that Rodgers could appear as the starting quarterback going into the new season, he indicated that the franchise is favoring Jordan Love for the role.
“He’s obviously a great player and four-time MVP, but I think it’s trying to find what he wants and what we want, and hopefully we can find a win-win situation,” Murphy stated in an interview at the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association girls basketball tournament on Friday.
Murphy and the Packers have granted permission to Rodgers and the New York Jets to enter into discussions over a possible deal. The parties began talks earlier in the week when a Jets contingent met with Rodgers in California.
According to Murphy, the Packers are hoping that a solution regarding Rodgers’ future will be reached before Wednesday when the NFL free agency gets underway.
