Former Green Bay Packers wide receiver and current Minnesota Vikings Greg Jennings made some headlines when he made comments that were perceived as taking a shot at his former quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The comments didn’t sit well with the Packers fans who were still hoping to embrace Jennings nor did head coach Leslie Frazier appreciate his wideouts comments.
Now, with the media confronting him about the situation following training camp practice, Jennings has finally cleared the air.
“Aaron’s a phenomenal quarterback,” Jennings said, via Mark Craig of the Star-Tribune. “He knows that. No one needs to tell him that. What he’s done over the course of the last five years? Phenomenal. He set the bar high for quarterbacks in this league. He set the bar high for offenses in this league.
“Everything I say is all out of fun. I’m just saying something just to say it. They know that’s not me.”
Jennings was then asked if he had reached out to personally apologize to Rodgers, but that was not the case.
“No. For what? I’m apologizing right now,” Jennings said.
It is good to see this be an “issue” of the past and that the former teammates don’t seem to have any negative feelings towards each other.
The comments from Jennings always seemed like they were meant in jest and he has finally cleared them up. Hopefully this will make Packers fans embrace Jennings moving forward, even if he is rocking the purple.
