Aaron Rodgers addresses Packers dysfunction by saying, “It’s about the people”

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers appeared on Kenny Mayne’s final episode of SportsCenter, at a time when Rodgers’ future with the team continues to be a major question mark.

“I’m just here so I won’t get fined, Ken,” Rodgers said initially. Mayne persisted.

“This is not about me,” Rodgers said. “This is about you. This is about years and years of watching you on TV. You, not just the highlights, but tuning in to watch you and Keith Olbermann and Stuart Scott changing the ways that late-night SportsCenters were done.”

Mayne didn’t relent.

“This isn’t what they want,” Mayne said. “They didn’t call on you for a tribute video here.

“I bumped into one of the VIPs here who just happens to be the biggest news name in sports right now. That’s Aaron Rodgers. He didn’t want to talk on camera,” Tirico said before noting what Rodgers

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers reiterated Friday on SportsCenter that his future with the team is not in his control.

Speaking to Kenny Mayne about ending his career with Green Bay, Rodgers said, “I don’t know that a lot of that’s in my hands.”

Rodgers had expressed a similar sentiment on The Pat McAfee Show in January (h/t Bill Huber of Packer Central).

“To me, a reality, not a certainty or an absolute, is that my future is not in my hands.

“Now, that’s really the case of all of us as players. Naturally, there’s time when you let your mind go to maybe, ‘I’m going to be a Packer for life.’ Or, ‘I’m going to
