Aaron Rodgers, QB | GB

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Packers QB Aaron Rodgers told Green Bay free agents that he would not be with the Packers in 2021.

Garafolo added that Rodgers was telling his team's free agents that he would be gone as early as the beginning of the 2020 season. He also noted that it's possible the players simply did not believe Rodgers would actually leave Green Bay, evidenced by David Bakhtiari signing a four-year extension with the team last fall. Rodgers has been disgruntled with the team for some time now but it appears like he has been planning his departure for well over a year now. With this level of commitment, it's possible that he does hang up the cleats before returning to the Packers. From a fantasy perspective, all Green Bay players come with an extreme downside now. If Rodgers does find a new home, the change to Jordan Love will be catastrophic for the offense.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports Packers officials believe teams tampered with Aaron Rodgers.

Demovsky cites a source who said the Packers were "upset teams may have contacted Rodgers to gauge whether he'd be interested in playing for them if they tried to make a trade" after ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Rodgers doesn't want to return to Green Bay in 2021. The Packers, according to Demovsky, have not filed official tampering charges with the league because tampering is nearly impossible to prove. The 49ers and Broncos have been linked to Rodgers over the past week. The Packers could be forced into trading Rodgers -- who doesn't have a no-trade clause in his contract -- if the rift between the QB and general manager Brian Gutekunst proves unfixable. The Athletic's Bob McGinn reported Rodgers in a team group chat called Gutekunst Jerry Krause, the former Chicago Bulls general manager reviled and mocked by Michael Jordan and his teammates in the 1990s. There may be no coming back from that. In the meantime, drafting Packers players like Aaron Jones and Davante Adams is an increasingly risky proposition.

Raiders released S Jeff Heath.

The Raiders drafted two safeties in the first four rounds of the draft this year and took a safety/linebacker hybrid later in the draft as well. With a wealth of young talent at the position, they simply didn't have the roster space to hold onto Heath. The veteran safety started five games for Las Vegas last year and broke up five passes. Before joining the Raiders, Heath started 44 games at safety for Dallas from 2017 to 2019. He should have no problem landing a short-term deal with a team in need of some secondary depth.
