A former NFL GM bodyslammed Aaron Rodgers when asked about what he thought of the Green Bay Packers quarterback.
Another day, another Lincoln Log in the ever-expanding mansion of drama surrounding the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers.
A day after Rodgers went on a live stream and used the opportunity to seemingly take a not-so-subtle shot at his head coach, the Packers drama is once again in the spotlight. A former NFL GM spoke with FanSided’s Matt Lombardo spoke and absolutely destroyed Aaron Rodgers, claiming that no one in Green Bay likes him and implying that no one will weep if he ends up somewhere else in 2021 and beyond.
“The guy’s selfish. Teammates don’t like him. Coaches don’t like him. It’s all about Aaron. They all deal with him, because he’s a superstar. He helps guys make money and put food on the table for their kids, and people respect him for that.”
Is Aaron Rodgers leaving Green Bay?
If you’ve missed any of the previous episodes of the soap opera, a decade of frustration with the Packers boiled over in April when Rodgers used Adam Schefter as a backdoor to request a trade out of Green Bay. This happened on the night of the NFL Draft, when interest in football was at a peak, and roughly three months after he wasn’t allowed to attempt a game-winning touchdown on fourth down in the NFC Championship Game.
That infamous NFC Championship blunder by Matt LaFleur wasn’t the reason Rodgers decided now was the time to publically kick up dust, rather it was the latest in a long line of bad decisions made by people Rodgers didn’t trust to make the right one.
Rodgers, who is once again an MVP-favorite, is in the beginning stages of what appears to be a holdout that ends one of two ways: Either the Packers buckle to the ego of their future Hall of Fame quarterback, or Rodgers exists in a continuation of a quarterback tradition in Green Bay that is truly unlike any other.
