It remains to be seen whether Aaron Rodgers will join the Green Bay Packers at training camp when it kicks off Wednesday, but he is reportedly maintaining his normal routine as the season approaches.

According to ESPN, the quarterback completed his typical offseason training program with Proactive Sports Performance. The program includes yoga, working out on sand dunes, lifting weights and on-field work.

The six-to-seven-week program ended Saturday as players start shifting their attention toward training camp.

Rodgers' attendance at training camp has become one of the dominant storylines in the NFL, as the Packers would be Super Bowl contenders with him under center and perhaps in line for a lackluster season if he isn't.

That's not the only drama with Green Bay, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the team is in a "bad place" when it comes to contract negotiations with wide receiver Davante Adams.

Both Adams and Rodgers notably posted a picture of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen on their Instagram Stories, which could have been in reference to The Last Dance documentary and the duo taking one more run at a championship:

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday that Rodgers rejected a two-year contract extension this offseason that would have made him the league's highest-paid quarterback. 

"Rodgers declined the offer, proof it's not about the money," Schefter wrote in reference to the quarterback's issues with the team.

All eyes now turn toward Green Bay's training camp opening Wednesday.

Packers fans looking for a silver lining can at least take solace knowing Rodgers completed his normal offseason program. It has clearly worked in the past, as he has an all-time resume that includes three league MVPs, nine Pro Bowl selections and a Super Bowl title.
