QB Aaron Rodgers Not Consulted In Departure Of QB Coach Van Pelt

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was apparently out of the loop when the team decided not to retain quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt. 

Rodgers tells E-S-P-N the move was made without consulting him.  When head coach Mike McCarthy was interviewed last month about this situation, he indicated it was Van Pelt's choosing -- the assistant wanted to be able to look at other opportunities.  How this affects Rodgers signing a new contract with Green Bay isn't clear yet.  He becomes a free agent at the end of the 2019 season and the team wants to lock him up.
