Yesterday, Stephen A. Smith made news advising Aaron Rodgers to DEMAND a commerce from the Inexperienced Bay Packers. This was after Rodgers voiced his displeasure together with his QB coach not being retained, and Smith thought the Packers haven’t offered Rodgers with the assist he has wanted.
Many might have thought this was a lot ado about nothing, however then Rodgers spoke to the Related Press offering some further notable feedback, to say the least. When discussing ending his profession in Inexperienced Bay, Rodgers added a not-so-meaningless response :
“I feel you might have to be humble sufficient to understand if it might occur to Brett, it could actually occur to you.”
Rodgers additionally said he would really like to play so long as Tom Brady, however he made it clear that it won’t all be for the similar group, comparable to his predecessor Brett Farve.
Now, whereas Rodgers indicated if this was to occur it might be the staff’s choice – calling it “fairly particular” enjoying for only one staff – was he planting the seeds for his departure or making an attempt to warn the Packers to get him some assist?
It goes with out saying, the Packers have provided the former MVP with subpar expertise to work together with his complete profession.
Again to Stephen A’s feedback, one factor about the ESPN commentator is he’s extremely related to skilled athletes. He has made it very clear over the years that Rodgers is his favourite participant in the NFL referring to him as a “BADDDDDD MANNNN” most of the time:
The 2 additionally seem to have some relationship being seen collectively at the NBA Finals in June, and Rodgers posting a video wishing him a Pleased Birthday on First Take.
The night time earlier than all of this noise was made by the Stephen A. Smith’s feedback, they have been at a Tremendous Bowl celebration at the similar time.
There ought to be an inexpensive degree of concern amongst Packers’ followers that Rodgers, who has two extra years left on his deal, might have voiced his frustrations to Stephen A. and it led to Stephen A. sending off a loud warning to the Packers simply the subsequent day. Rodgers telling the AP his future shouldn’t be sure with the staff provides gasoline to the hypothesis.
In fact, this all might simply be a coincidence, however the timing and sample is definitely alarming. It is going to be fascinating to see how lively the Packers are in free company, one thing they usually will not be concerned with as huge gamers.
