GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAW) -To the surprise of very few, Aaron Rodgers will skip the Packers’ mandatory minicamp starting Tuesday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The absence could leave to a fine of over $93,000, but Schefter said on ESPN earlier Monday that the expectation is the Packers will excuse Rodgers’ absence and waive the fine.

The future Hall-of-Famer and the only team he’s every played for remain in a standoff, as Rodgers reportedly has told the Packers he does not want to play for them again, and has not denied those reports since they first came out on NFL Draft night at the end of April.
