GREEN BAY, Wis. (NBC 26) — Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is not expected to report for this week's mandatory minicamp, according to reports from both ESPN and NFL Network.

NFL Network reports there has been "no change" in the reigning MVP's status. Rodgers has been at odds with the Packers front office throughout the offseason.

The Packers can fine Rodgers $93,085 for missing the mandatory practices and meetings. Although, according to ESPN, the team has considered the option of granting him an "excused absence" and waiving the fine.

That fine pales in comparison to the $500,000 bonus Rodgers already forfeited by skipping voluntary OTA practices in each of the past two weeks.

The three-time MVP will also make a much bigger statement now by skipping a mandatory practice, compared to a voluntary one.

This is the first time Rodgers has missed OTAs or minicamp in his 17-year NFL career.
