Jaguars-Packers weather update | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The forecast for today's Jaguars-Packers game calls for sustained winds of 25 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. Temperatures will be in the mid-30s with a chance of snow showers. Those are obviously tough conditions for the passing and kicking games. We've updated our Jaguars and Packers projections.

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst didn't mince words when discussing the Aaron Rodgers situation on Thursday night. "No, we’re not going to trade Aaron Rodgers," Gutekunst said. "He's our quarterback. He's our leader. We've been working through this for a little while now. I just think it might take some time. But he's the guy that makes this thing go." We'll continue to keep a close eye on this, but Rodgers seems less likely to be dealt this year with the 1st round of the draft behind us.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is "disgruntled" with the organization and has told some that he doesn't want to return to the team, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It seemed like this relationship had been mended, but Rodgers is reportedly still upset about Green Bay's decision to take QB Jordan Love in the 1st round of last year's draft. "As we've stated since the season ended, we are committed to Aaron in 2021 and beyond," GM Brian Gutekunst told ESPN. "Aaron has been a vital part of our success and we look forward to competing for another championship with him leading our team." We'll see where this goes. The 49ers reportedly called the Packers on Wednesday night to inquire about Rodgers' availability but were turned away.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adds that Rodgers' discontent stems from an inability for him and the Packers to agree on a new long-term contract. "No deal is done, and he’s not happy now," Rapoport adds.

The NFL owners officially approved a 17-game schedule for the 2021 season. It'll be an 18-week season, with every team still getting just 1 bye week. There will be 3 weeks of preseason in August, rather than 4. Fantasy leagues will need to decide whether they want to add another regular-season game, expand the playoffs by a week or simply end the season in Week 16.

Packers President Mark Murphy didn't mince words when discussing QB Aaron Rodgers' standing with the team in a Tuesday radio interview. “I’ll say this: There’s no way in heck that Aaron is not going to be on the Packers," Murphy said. "I mean, he is going to be the MVP of the league, might have had his best year ever. He’s our unquestioned leader and, you know, we’re not idiots.” Rodgers made headlines when he said he was unsure of his Packers future after the loss to the Bucs last weekend, but it always seemed unlikely that he'd play anywhere else in 2021. Rodgers' contract makes it easier for Green Bay to move on during the 2022 offseason.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers "fully sounded like someone who doesn't know if he'll be the QB here next season," The Athletic's Matt Schneidman tweeted after Rodgers' press conference following the loss to the Bucs. Here was that quote from Rodgers that's causing a stir: “A lot of guys’ futures that are uncertain, myself included.” That could mean a lot of things, of course. Rodgers is coming off an MVP-caliber season and still has 3 years left on his deal, so it'd be a surprise if Green Bay decides to move on. But it was also a surprise when the Packers traded up to select QB Jordan Love with the 26th overall pick of last year's draft. We'll track this situation all offseason.
