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.
