Aaron Rodgers held a 32-minute press conference in which he went into detail about his tumultuous offseason with the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers said he considered retirement.

"I just want to be involved in conversations that affect my ability to do my job," Rodgers said.

When asked if he's gotten any assurances that it will happen, he said: "I'm not sure ... at this point."

Rodgers talked about players who were not retained such as Charles Woodson and Randall Cobb. Cobb is expected to be traded back to the Packers.

"I wanted to help the organization, maybe learn from the some of the mistakes in the past ... and about the way that some of the outgoing veterans were treated," Rodgers said. "And just the fact that we didn't retain a number of players that I felt like were core players to our foundation, to our locker room. High-character guys."
