Aaron Rodgers is back for another round of training camp with the Green Bay Packers, indicating he may stay with his longtime team after all.

After reports of the reigning NFL MVP wanting to leave Wisconsin, Rodgers, 37, was spotted walking into training camp on Tuesday, with the team tweeting out his arrival.

One day earlier, ESPN’s Adam Schefter had reported that Rodgers appeared to be making headway in contract negotiations with the Packers, where he’s played for his entire 16-year professional career. The agreement would include canceling the final year of his contract, making it more likely that the upcoming 2021 season will be his last in Green Bay.

Rodgers was selected by the Packers as the 24th overall pick in the 2005 draft, and has three years remaining on his contract after signing a four-year, $134 million extension in August 2018.

Aaron Rodgers closing in on reworked contract with Green Bay Packers as part of 2021 return

One of the biggest mysteries of the NFL offseason just gained a little bit of clarity.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is close to an agreement with the Green Bay Packers on a reworked contract, a person with knowledge of the deal told USA TODAY Sports’ Mike Jones, seemingly bringing at least a temporary end to the months-long stalemate between the reigning NFL MVP and the franchise he has been with for 16 seasons. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not been finalized.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter was first to report the development.

Under terms of the agreement, according to ESPN, the final year of Rodgers’ existing contract would be voided, leaving only two remaining. Green Bay would not be allowed to place the franchise or transition tag on Rodgers, and the team would agree to review the contract at the end of the season, per ESPN.

Just a month ago, it was reported that Neil Everett might be on his way out of ESPN, as contract negotiations hit a snag. After losing one major host in Maria Taylor, it looks like the Worldwide Leader got things worked out with Everett and Ashley Brewer.

As first reported by Sports Business Journal, Everett and Brewer have re-upped with the network. Both will be in the rotation for the 1 a.m. SportsCenter, which broadcasts from Los Angeles.

As a result, Brewer is moving out West, after working from Bristol to this point in her ESPN career. She and Everett will work with Stan Verrett and Linda Cohn on that late-night edition of ESPN’s signature show.

Brewer had been working as the host of the now-ESPN+-based SportsNation. ESPN

Aaron Rodgers declined Packers’ contract extension offer

GREEN BAY – In an attempt to mend their relationship with Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers offered a contract extension this offseason that would have tied the quarterback to the team for the next five seasons, multiple people with knowledge of the discussions confirmed to the USA TODAY Network. The people spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the talks.

Ultimately, Rodgers did not accept the offer.

The offer was not made immediately after Rodgers’ third MVP season, but rather after it became apparent the relationship between team and quarterback was fractured, one person with knowledge of the offer told the USA TODAY Network. It was believed the Packers’ initial hesitancy to make any meaningful alterations to Rodgers’ contract after the season only exacerbated the quarterback’s frustrations.

But the Packers regrouped to offer an extension that would expire after Rodgers’ age-42 season, multiple people familiar with
