It was reported on Thursday that Aaron Rodgers wants to make $50 million per season moving forward. That report doesn’t sit well with former Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings.
During this Friday’s episode of “First Things First” on FS1, Jennings called Rodgers selfish for reportedly wanting $50 million per year.
“People change, but somethings never do. Aaron Rodgers has been a very selfish guy,” Jennings said. “I get it, he’s at the end of his career and is trying to take whatever he can take.
But you can’t do that and want to win. How are you going to try to win?
Guys got to look out for themselves, but in doing so you cut out the legs of others. At the quarterback position, you cut out more than just a pair of legs.”
Shortly after Jennings went on this rant, NFL fans called him out on Twitter. Several people believe Jennings is just criticizing Rodgers for views.
Packers backup quarterback Kurt Benkert also replied to Jennings’ comments. Let’s just say he doesn’t agree with Jennings at all.
Jennings and Rodgers no longer have a close relationship off the field, and it’s tough to envision a scenario where these two former teammates see eye to eye anytime soon.
