Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was spotted working out with a Green Bay Packers teammate prior to training camp.
Green Bay Packers training camp is scheduled to kick off this upcoming Wednesday, July 28. Usually, it is a happy occasion for the Packers faithful. But now it is a moment of stress for the fanbase due to the uncertainty surrounding quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ status with the team. We have a potential update on Rodgers’ status.
On Friday, Proactive Sports Performance’s official Instagram account posted a photo of Rodgers working out with longtime left tackle David Bakhtiari at their facility in Westlake Village, Calif. Interestingly enough, Bakhtiari reposted the image on his Instagram story.
Now, it’s unclear when this picture was taken, but that Bakhtiari shared it to his Instagram story, it suggests he wasn’t just sharing an old picture.

While the two are working out together, it is important to note that both players are clients of Proactive Sports Performance, according to their official website. Another Packers player spotted working out at the facility was defensive tackle Kenny Clark.
Rodgers has been the story of the NFL offseason, as a report on the first night of the NFL Draft revealed that the quarterback had no desire to play for the Packers any longer. Then, during an interview with then-ESPN anchor Kenny Mayne, Rodgers pointed out that his discrepancy with the team was the front office’s “philosophy.” The most recent update from Rodgers came earlier this month at the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament, saying that he will “get back to working out, then figure things out in a couple of weeks.” The working out was evident with this latest photo, that’s for sure.
Things continued to escalate this week, as Las Vegas sports books believe that Rodgers will announce his retirement before the start of training camp.
However you determine the significance of this picture is up for you to decide. But if you want a definitive answer as to whether Rodgers will play for the Packers in 2021 or potentially retire, keep your eyes peeled on your social media feeds this Wednesday when players report for training camp.
