The little barb-fest between Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers may end up being a whole bunch ado about nothing (word to Claudio). The tiff began when Jennings made some disparaging remarks about his former quarterback in the Star Tribune, comments that Aaron Rodgers has already decided he’s above responding to (“don’t feed the trolls” works in real life as well as on the ‘net, it appears).

Now Jennings has been instructed to cut it out by Vikings coach Leslie Frazier, who said that the receiver needs to focus on his new team as opposed to his old one:

We’re the Vikings and we want to talk about us, what we’re trying to get done. That’s where our focus has to be. There’s so much work to be done, and we don’t want to be looking at what’s happening with other teams, other teams’ players. We’ve got to focus on us. He’s good with that (ESPN).

The two team will meet twice next season: on October 27th in Minneapolis and then on November 24th in Green Bay.
