GREEN BAY - Given a nationally televised chance Monday night to refute any standoff between him and his team, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers passed.
He also did not retire.
Instead, in an interview with ESPN SportsCenter host Kenny Mayne, Rodgers was careful to leave all options open for his future.
"Anything's on the table at this point," Rodgers said in his first public comments since ESPN reported April 29 that there was a rift between the star quarterback and the Packers.
Rodgers did not arrive at voluntary organized team activities Monday when the Packers opened that phase of their offseason program. He is unlikely to be the only Packers player not participating in OTAs, given the leaguewide movement among players to skip voluntary workouts this offseason. But Rodgers has consistently been a participant in OTAs throughout his career, until now.
