GREEN BAY, Wis. (WAOW) — It's the first day of the Green Bay Packers minicamp, and the tension between the organization and its star quarterback continues.

Aaron Rodgers didn't show up to the mandatory camp Tuesday morning, according to News 9's Addison Van Patten. NFL insiders expected the absence.

In missing the minicamp, Rodgers could be fined $93,085 for his absence. Although, ESPN Senior NFL Insider Adam Schefter says the team could excuse him from the fines.

That fee is a sum for all three days of camp, if he were to show on Wednesday or Thursday, the fee could be reduced. Rob Demovsky breaks down the fines as so:

Demovsky also adds that the fines can only be waived for minicamp, not training camp.

In late May, Rodgers didn't show up to the first organized team practices. It wasn't a surprise Rodgers missed the voluntary sessions, but insiders also said it wasn't usual behavior.

At the end of April, hours before the NFL draft, Schefter reported that Rodgers didn't want to return to the team. Since then the team has signed two quarterbacks: Blake Bortles and Kurt Benkert.
