Maybe they are all vacationing in Hawaii.

The top five receivers for the Packers all missed the Packers voluntary OTAs on Tuesday as Aaron Rodgers sits out in an attempt to force a trade out of Green Bay. There were no specifics to explain their absence, though some speculated it was in solidarity with Rodgers.

“I think, as a coach, you always want as many guys that choose to show up here,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur said, according to The Athletic.

“I think there’s a lot of team chemistry, which is so important in winning and losing in this league and just learning how to play together, learning how to practice together, setting the standards for this football team. So certainly, yeah, you’d love to have everybody here.”

The group of missing wideouts is led by star Davante Adams and also includes Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, Devin Funchess and Equanimeous St. Brown.

Second-year quarterback Jordan Love led the offense with Rodgers absent and free-agent signing Blake Bortles sidelined for undisclosed reasons.

In his first comments on the subject, Rodgers blamed the “culture” of the Packers as the reason for his discontent.

“Aaron definitely knows how we feel about him, how he’s such an important part to our football team, such an important part to our organization,” LaFleur said Tuesday. “We’re just going to continue to try to work through this and hopefully can get him back in the building at some point.”

Rodgers is vacationing in Hawaii with fiancee Shailene Woodley, actor Miles Teller and his wife Keleigh Sperry.
