Aaron Rodgers Called Matt LaFleur Before Packers' Made Offer

Jan 10, 2019 8:34 AM

The Green Bay Packers claimed that Aaron Rodgers would have no input in the search for a new coach, but that doesn't appear to have been the case.

During his introductory press conference on Wednesday, Matt LaFleur admitted he got a phone call from Rodgers before he received a job offer from the Packers.

"That's kind of how I had an idea that maybe I was in the running for it," LaFleur said.

"The conversation went great," he continued. "I can tell he's a passionate guy, and he wants to win. And I think that holds true for me as well. So I think we're in alignment there because, like I said before, this game is about winning. I know that he wants to add to his legacy, and the only way we're going to accomplish that is to win a world championship."

Packers Won't Shut Down Aaron Rodgers

Dec 18, 2018 11:17 AM

The Green Bay Packers plan on starting Aaron Rodgers for their final two games of the season despite being eliminated from the playoffs.

"I think when you sign up for the 2018 NFL season, you sign up for a 16-game season and hopefully you earn the opportunity to extend that and to compete for a championship," Philbin said, via ESPN's Rob Demovsky. "Obviously the extension part is over. That being said, you're a football player, you're part of a team and your one role is to the contribute to the overall success of the team. And the team has an opportunity to win a game Sunday against the New York Jets, and if our players, they should want to participate because they're good teammates and they should. I think that's their obligation to the team. So we'll see. If there are other discussions contrary to that, we'll certainly cross that bridge and discuss it.

"Again, I think it's bigger than Aaron Rodgers. This is a football team. You're a football player. You're employed by the Green Bay Packers just like if players or coaches were to say, 'Geez I'd like to go home tonight and not prepare as hard for this game because we're not going to the playoffs,' I mean, that's not a professional approach to the job, I don't think."
