Aaron Rodgers insists he doesn’t want to meddle in the Green Bay Packers ‘ decision-making process.

A report on Tuesday from Yahoo! Sports’ Charles Robinson suggested that Rodgers wants more input into some of the Packers ‘ major personnel decisions. The report specifically mentioned that Rodgers was frustrated and emotional about being cut out of the process that led Green Bay to move on from receiver Jordy Nelson and quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt.

Later in the day, Rodgers was asked about the report, and he said he understands his job is to play quarterback, not meddle in management decisions.

I’m under contract for the next two years, he said, per Wood. Obviously we’d like to lock something in, I think, at some point. The team has made that public knowledge that they’d love to do that. I’ve said many times I’d love to finish my career here. So there’s more than mutual interest on both sides.

As for the surgically repaired collarbone injury that wiped out most of his 2017 campaign, Rodgers said he feels great as the Packers start offseason conditioning.

Meanwhile, Marshall shouldn’t have much trouble latching on elsewhere as a No. 2 or 3 receiver as long as his medical check comes back clean after the failed Giants physical.

We think he has great upside, Carroll said after McDowell was drafted. He had a fantastic sophomore season that we weighed heavily and we think we have a really special player and we’re really happy to get him. Had a good visit when he came in, all that, and it paid off.

But by July, the goodwill was starting to wear thin following the ATV accident and it was further damaged when McDowell was arrested in December outside a night club in Atlanta because of a dispute over a $600 bill.

Analysis: In the not-so-distant past, the Lions had the league’s most dominant defensive interior. But long gone are the days of former first-round picks Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley wreaking havoc on the inside.

The current collective is led by A’Shawn Robinson, a foundational piece who still is scratching the surface of his potential. In his second season, he led the group with 53 tackles, while defending six passes at the line of scrimmage, including his first career interception, which he returned for a touchdown against New Orleans.

The final piece to the Lions’ interior is 2017 sixth-round pick Jeremiah Ledbetter. He had minimal production as a rookie after bulking up to take on the role, but his athletic profile suggests intriguing potential if can develop in this second offseason.

Overall, it’s a group capable of holding its own, but likely to hover around or just below league average both against the run and rushing the passer without further upgrades. Fortunately, this draft offers plenty of potential throughout.

Shazier stood up to lead the crowd in a Let’s Go Pens! chant, and he was given a microphone and told the fans, It’s a hockey night in Pittsburgh.

Shazier looked steady and comfortable standing, an improvement over previous images that have shown him needing help to get out of his wheelchair.

The 25-year-old Shazier suffered the injury last year in a game against the Bengals. The Steelers have already announced that Shazier will not be able to play in 2018.

Report: Rams punter Johnny Hekker restructures contract

Rams General Manager Les Snead conceded that they are about to make defensive tackle Aaron Donald the highest paid defensive player in league history.

With that in mind, the Rams appear to be checking the couch cushions for whatever change they can find.

While the full schedule release is set to be announced Thursday night, at least one game of the NFL calendar was announced late Wednesday. The Kansas City Chiefs will face the Los Angeles Rams in Mexico City on Monday Night Football on November 19. Kickoff will be at 8:15 p.m. ET. It had been known since January that the two teams would meet at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City at some point during the season. The game will mark the second time the Chiefs have played a game in Mexico. They played the Dallas Cowboys in a preseason game in Monterrey in 1996. It will be the fourth regular season NFL game played in Mexico City and third straight season the league has ventured south of the border.

Thursday on YES, Boston’s Rick Porcello was pitching a no-hitter in the fourth, two out. The Red Sox had a 6-0 lead and it was beginning to rain hard. Porcello’s mission was then as clear to us as it was to him: Pitch fast, no deep counts, get this game in as an official one, don’t waste any time.

But Kay saw it the other way: The Yankees aren’t wasting any time. They’re not working the count. They’re jumping on Porcello, who’s throwing strikes.

The Yanks were stuck. They could either swing at the first pitch — almost a guaranteed strike — or allow the count to go against them.

In the fifth, Kay again seemed blind to the circumstances heavy rain had created: You know the Yankees are not working the count because they figure Porcello’s going to be ahead, 0-2. O’Neill added Porcello is a guy who throws a lot of strikes.

In 2017, the Packers started 4-1 before Rodgers got hurt. They finished the year 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008. It’s easy to make the argument that Rodgers single-handedly makes the Packers a playoff contender, and he does so on a salary that is relatively cheap at the position.

So there really isn’t too much urgency for the Packers to force a deal when they can keep the quarterback for two more seasons at that reasonable price. Then, he could be franchised in 2020, and possibly 2021 as well, before Green Bay would likely have no choice but to lose him in 2022, months after his 39th birthday.

That leaves plenty of time for a contract to get done, but now is when an extension needs to happen. If it doesn’t, the leverage will tilt decidedly in Rodgers’ favor and his age will only make the Packers more hesitant to commit significantly.

Nick Foles would’love’ opportunity to be starter again

If one of the NFL’s major offseason storylines is whether Nick Foles will be traded, a related question is whether the reigning Super Bowl MVP harbors a burning desire to leave the Eagles for a starting opportunity.

After all, this is a quarterback who contemplated early football retirement as he went unsigned throughout the 2016 offseason. Perhaps he’s found a comfortable niche as Carson Wentz’s backup on a perennial playoff contender.

The NFL, NHL, and NCAA are not involved in the NBA and MLB’s lobbying efforts. 

The two leagues are asking potential sports betting states for a few things, including consumer protections and promises that casinos across the country will use the same statistics and data. The fee is another part.  

Sports betting is a very real possibility, and we have an obligation to our fans and our sport to provide our perspective in order to ensure the integrity of our games is protected, as the damage from even a hint of scandal will hurt the sports leagues far worse than anyone else, according to a statement Major League Baseball released late Thursday. 

Turns out the combination of that foam, known as XRD Technology – the brainchild of an MIT-trained chemical engineer – and the design concepts Broderick and his partner Ted Monica, a former equipment manager in the NFL and USFL who once oversaw shoulder pad design at Riddell, had created was a perfect marriage. And Meyer had just become the latest XTECH convert, joining a legion of players, coaches and NFL, college and high school programs.

It didn’t take long for Griffin to show Burkett and the rest of UCF.

He can do everything a player with both hands can do, Burkett said. He has speed, he’s relentless, and he’s not scared of anything.

How will Griffin be able to make the transition as a pro?

The time and date of this year’s Mexico City game is no longer a mystery.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams will play at Estadio Azteca on Nov. 19 at 8:15 p.m. ET, the league announced Wednesday night. The reveal comes before the release of the full 2018 NFL regular-season schedule, which will be announced Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on NFL Network.

There’s no telling if Watson will be the same quarterback coming back from injury or if the Texans can maintain last season’s brilliant offensive stretch with what coach Bill O’Brien called an entirely different offense in place. But on that front, Houston’s heroes are undaunted.

[Our potential] is through the roof. We’re as good as we think and the work that we put in, Watson said. We have a long way to go, but at the same time, we have that mindset that we want to break records together.

After earning a Super Bowl ring with the Colts in 2007, Freeney returned to the title game with the Falcons a decade later. Along the way, he earned three first-team All-Pro nods and seven trips to the Pro Bowl.

Freeney will retire with 125.5 sacks, tied with Baltimore’s Terrell Suggs for 17th on the all-time list. Of the 16 players ahead of him, 11 have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The exceptions include Julius Peppers, DeMarcus Ware, John Abraham and Jared Allen — four players yet to gain eligibility.

Although his strong Hall of Fame case will face competition from contemporaries such as that fearsome pass-rushing quartet — as well as Suggs and James Harrison — we expect Freeney to don a gold jacket someday.

Sure. Maybe. But this was not the case. Up 6-0 and the rain worsening — soon there would be a weather delay — it was incumbent upon Porcello to throw first-pitch strikes to try to put the ball in play. And that’s what he did. In the fourth and fifth, he threw a total of 14 pitches to the seven batters he faced.

But what do we know? We’re just supposed to sit there, ignoring what we see, instead believing what we’re told.

Bradley Chubb: I’m the best player in the draft

Many mock drafts have the Colts selecting North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb with the third overall pick. Chubb, though, said he’s the best player in the draft.

A three-year starter, Chubb saw snaps on both the left side and the right side of the line. He broke Mario Williams’ school records for sacks and tackles for loss.

Chubb, who won the Nagurski Trophy and the Hendricks Award last season, said he will participate in everything this weekend.

The Browns couldn’t have hoped for a better situation after the Jets traded for the third overall pick. Cleveland will have its choice of quarterbacks with the first pick and will likely be in a position to land the top non-quarterback prospect with the fourth selection.

Even though the Browns already have Myles Garrett and Emmanuel Ogbah at defensive end, the defense finished last in 2017 with 142 pressures from its front seven, according to Pro Football Focus.

The reigning ACC Defensive Player of Year finished second in major college football last season with 26 tackles for loss. Chubb also tied for second among draft prospects with 55 pressures, per PFF. Chubb isn’t quite the prospect Garrett was a year ago because he’s not quite as explosive or flexible off the edge. But he is more refined and better against the run than Garrett was.

Great quarterback play and consistent defensive pressure drive the NFL’s best teams. The Browns hope to get both with their first two selections.

I think I’m a very confident guy, Bridgewater said Wednesday. I believe in myself, I believe in the skill-set I was blessed with, and I’ll just leave it at that. I’m very confident in myself, but at the same time I do want to do whatever I can to help this team win.

What he did not express great confidence in, at least publicly, is the health of his surgically repaired knee, an injury that essentially kept him off the field the past two seasons. Bridgewater would not say he will be ready in time for the Jets’ spring workouts and the organized team activity sessions.

Jets make push for former Cowboys pass rusher

The Jets have been in the market for an outside pass rusher for about the past decade, and they brought in a free agent to potentially fill that hole on a visit Monday.

The plan worked at first. After a quiet summer, Manziel’s performance spiked at the start of the 2015 season. Johnny Football is back and better than ever, The Post wrote after the Browns’ first preseason game against the Redskins, when he completed 7 of 11 attempts for 42 yards.

But let’s look at how and why New Mexico State made this year’s NCAA Tournament.

In addition to a roster recruited from France, Australia and Trinidad, the state-funded school’s biggest get this season was 6-foot-4 guard Zach Lofton, who has averaged 20 points and five rebounds.

First, Lofton played for three high schools. One closed, the next was near his home in Minnesota, the third an Iowa prep academy that draws aspiring college basketball players from throughout the country. Some call such schools basketball warehouses.

Former Cowboys defensive end Benson Mayowa visited the Jets on Monday, a source confirmed. Mayowa had six sacks in 2016 for the Cowboys, but just one last year.

The 26-year-old began his career with the Seahawks and spent some time with the Raiders before signing with the Cowboys in 2016. He had knee and back issues last year.

Dallas cut Mayowa last Wednesday. Unlike free agents still under contract, who must wait until Wednesday to sign, Mayowa is free to visit teams and sign whenever he wants. The NFL Network reported he is scheduled to visit the Redskins on Tuesday and the Seahawks and Colts have also shown interest.

Maccagnan better blow away Cousins — everyone’s $30 Million Man — with an offer he can’t refuse, because the Vikings can offer the chance to win a Super Bowl, and he can’t.

In this cutthroat game of musical quarterbacks, Maccagnan’s task would be complicated further as there is no guarantee the Jets will be able to land the Quarterback of the Future they desire with the sixth pick of the NFL draft if they do not trade up.

Josh Allen: 90-yard throw might be a bit of an exaggeration

Josh Allen doesn’t know if he can throw the football quite as far as his personal quarterbacks coach thinks he can. But Ryan Flaherty’s declaration that the Wyoming quarterback can throw it 90 yards isn’t far off, Allen said.

Not that he expects to try.

It’s always been about heart, said Flowers, who weighed 214 and ran a 4.63 in the 40. It’s never about the size. It’s never about how much you weigh. It’s about how much heart you have. I’ve been doubted all my life. I’ve been going through things all my life. I played every position in high school. I’m just a guy who wants to win. I’m destined to win. I’ll do whatever it takes to win.

Flowers said he is open to changing positions at the next level, a question he is hearing from scouts.

I’d say it’s kind of a 50-50 thing. Some teams talk about quarterback. Some teams talk about running back, Flowers said. At the end of the day, I just want to fulfill my dream and be able to give back once I make it.

Smith appeared in 16 regular-season games with 14 starts, but he caught only 36 passes for 430 yards and two touchdowns. He started all three postseason games, generating 157 receiving yards and one touchdown reception, a 41-yard backbreaker in the NFC title game.

Primarily a deep threat, the Eagles would need to replace Smith with a speedster who can stretch the field. Given his total production, however, they may decide that they can fill his role without devoting $5 million to the position.

Still, they’ll need someone who can stretch the field even without catching the ball, an important commodity in an West Coast-style offense that relies on open throwing lanes closer to the line of scrimmage.

The Yankees’ short-term plan is for Ellsbury to start against the Twins in center field, get two at-bats and play about four innings in his first game since March 1. He was 1-for-10 in four games before injuring his right oblique taking BP on March 2.

Former Packers safety Aaron Rouse running for office in Virigina

Former Packers safety Aaron Rouse wanted to make a change in his hometown, and he’s doing something about it.

Via WAVY 10, Rouse announced that he was running for city council in his native Virginia Beach.

Can we please stop saying that the Patriots value special teams more than the rest of the league. First Malcolm Butler played on special teams in the biggest game of the year, for the first time all year. No recent experience, no expertise.

Why? Also Patriots special teams were completely outplayed in the Super Bowl. From field position to the kicking game, it was a terrible performance. I really think the Patriots would be better off building roster depth instead of keeping multiple designated ST players – Slater, Ebner, King, Bolden, stop the madness.

Linebacker Ufomba Kamalu is the only other exclusive rights free agent on the Texans roster this offseason. Two of their other safeties Marcus Gilchrist and Eddie Pleasant are set for unrestricted free agency.

At some point in the near future, I expect linebackers coach Brian Flores will be the Patriots defensive coordinator. It’s been reported this offseason that Flores, who’s called the defenses at times in the preseason, will handle those duties this coming fall with Matt Patricia having moved on to the Lions. He reportedly will not get the coordinator title, though. It’s a transition process that Belichick has used in the past for the jobs with guys like Patricia and on the offensive side with Bill O’Brien. But sooner or later Flores seems destined for the job and the title.

What do you think of Mason Rudolph from Oklahoma State and do you think the Patriots snag him with the 49ers pick?

Mike McCarthy: Brett Hundley wasn’t ready, but I still believe in him

The Packers found themselves with Brett Hundley as their starting quarterback for much of the 2017 season due to Aaron Rodgers’ broken collarbone and the results were not particularly good for the 2015 fifth-round pick.

Not long ago, this type of investment was considered exorbitant for an interior offensive lineman, but times have changed.

There isn’t a quarterback alive who’s gonna get in the huddle and say, ‘OK boys, let ’em up the middle and I’ll deal with it,’ Gettleman said. You need to be firm in the middle. At the end of the day, it’s keeping your quarterback upright and out of the hospital.

I mean, there’s a bunch of guards now that are getting paid, and when you think about it, they’re closer to the quarterback. Listen, it’s the market. Is that car worth $150,000? If someone buys it, I guess it’s worth it, you know what I mean?

It’s measurement day for the quarterbacks at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and the results for one of the top signal callers were different than they were at the Senior Bowl in January.

Well, I think that it’s going to be a whole group effort, Solder said. I don’t think one particular player is going to change the whole thing, so with everyone that is already there that I know and anyone that is coming in, we’re just going to have to work as hard as we can. It’s going to be an uphill process and that’s not saying anything about the past, it’s just that the NFL is a difficult, difficult league and we’re going to have to be the best that we can be to perform at a high level.

I’m going to be the best I can to do what I can — lead by example and it’s a group effort. Like I said, it’s not going to be one player, so I don’t have the mentality that I’m going to come in and make this huge impact, change the culture and all this kind of stuff. I’m just coming in to play football and be myself and do what I can.
