Aaron Rodgers called his relationship with Green Bay Packers' general manager Brian Gutekunst a "work in progress, for sure."

A week into training camp, Rodgers and Gutekunst have been seen at least once talking during practice for several minutes.

"Relationships aren't formed in a matter of a couple days," Rodgers said Wednesday of Gutekunst, who has been the GM since 2018 and on the Packers scouting staff since 1998. "There's time where the respect grows and the communication follows. I think the greatest relationships that you have with your friends and loved ones involved conversation and flow. You can not talk to a close friend for a few months and pick up right where you left off. There's no break in communication, there's no forced conversations or you've got to hit this person up because it's on your to-do list that day.

"It's all about wanting to have those conversations and wanting to be in conversation like that, and we've had a couple conversation and they've been positive conversations."
