Greg Jennings has done a lot of talking since leaving the Green bay Packers to team up with their rival Minnesota Vikings. One of his favorite subjects is former quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Now he is claiming that Rodgers is a spotlight hungry star who put himself ahead of the team.
“A lot of times when you have a guy who creates that spotlight for himself and establishes that and takes a lot of that, it becomes so-and-so and the team,” Jennings said of Rodgers on Thursday, according to The Star Tribune. “It should always be the team.”
“Don’t get me wrong, ’12’ is a great person,” Jennings said. “But when you hear all positives, all positives, all positives all the time, it’s hard for you to sit down when one of your teammates says, ‘Man, come on, you’ve got to hold yourself accountable for this.’ It’s hard for someone to see that now because all they’ve heard is I’m doing it the right way, I’m perfect. In actuality, we all have flaws.”
Aaron Rodgers isn’t taking the bait and not responding.
“I’ve seen a lot and been around a lot and learned a lot of lessons,” the quarterback said. “One of the lessons you learn, you can’t control everything and you shouldn’t worry too much about the things that are said outside the building. You’re worried about the opinions of your teammates and how they feel about you.”
