The Packers coach, who is going through another disappointing playoff, at the NFL Scouting Combine said he’s been in frequent contact with Rodgers but is making sure he gives the team’s top player some space as he makes his decision about his future.
“I know a lot needs to be done. He has a lot to think about,” he said He said. “I don’t want to be smug and tell him every day how much we love him and how much we want him back.”
LaFleur also revealed that Rodgers had a say in some of the organization’s new staff, specifically the reappointment of quarterback coach Tom Clements.
“I think we interviewed each other to a degree, but just the conversations we had, it’s very easy for me to see why he’s such a great coach and developer for quarterbacks, and such great communication,” Lafleur said of Clements. “He has such a fair and just behavior.
“I know he’s been coaching this match for a lot longer than I have. So, I think his ability to develop two back players regardless of who’s in the room would be very beneficial.”
While the Packers wait for Rodgers, “There are no new updates,” general manager Brian Gutekunst said on Tuesday.
Gutekunst said that “not a single person” had advocated over a deal for the ruling NFL MVP despite rumors that he would become a hot commodity in the trade market. The Packers general manager said he expects to know what Rodgers wants to do before the start of the new league year on March 16.
“There’s a lot of decisions to be made before that. So, that’s going to be helpful. I think we’ll know something before that,” He said.
