"I truly believe that he will be there for training camp, this will get fixed, and I think the relationship will get much better between him and the GM," Jones said. Jones also said Rodgers isn’t as down on Packers GM Brian Gutekinst as some people have made him out to be, nor is Rodgers as unhappy about his contract as some people have made him out to be. "I’ve talked to Aaron. I talk to him all the time. He's told me that it's not about the G.M., it's not about new money, it's not about the G.M. So when I hear everybody say it’s about getting the G.M. fired and these things, it’s not about that," Jones said. So why is Rodgers not participating in the Packers’ mandatory minicamp this week? "His No. 1 beef is a private conversation on the phone that I can't share with you," Jones said. Jones believes it's all about who the team was releasing without any input from Rodgers, not about who they are drafting or signing.

The 2020 first-round pick hasn't had many experienced targets to work with during OTAs because the top-four returning receivers (WR Davante Adams, WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR Allen Lazard and WR Equanimeous St. Brown) along with 2020 opt-out WR Devin Funchess have all stayed away. They're expected to attend this week's camp. Love has favored check-down passes during the practices that have been open to reporters, but now he shouldn't have any reason not to take some more shots down the field.

The financial penalties grow in training camp.
