Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hasn’t said much following the team’s strange decision to trade up to select Utah State gunslinger Jordan Love in the NFL Draft. The 36-year-old held an intriguing conversation with Brett Favre, whom he allegedly told that he was surprised by the pick.
That’s subsequently seen the world of sports media start to predict the end of Rodgers’ reign in Green Bay. However, the two-time MVP isn’t exactly succumbing to the noise. Some might say that he’s blocking it out, as evidenced by his “chill” Instagram post.
That’s not the whole story, either. The lethargic aura of this photo practically forced Packers offensive lineman David Bakhtiari to take shots at his quarterback.
That’s exactly how you come at the head of one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. However, Rodgers wasn’t just going to let Bakhtiari get away with roasting him.
Somebody called the grammar police, and the eight-time Pro Bowler wasted no time arriving on the scene.
That’s a good point, Bakhtiari. However, it unfortunately failed to provoke a reply from the former No. 24 overall pick.
The point to take here is that Rodgers isn’t isolating himself from his teammates following the Packers’ polarizing Draft approach. This humorous back-and-forth with Bakhtiari is another example that Rodgers is handling everything just fine.
