Ever since Greg Jennings jumped ship from the Green Bay Packers to their rivals the Minnesota Vikings he has been taking parting shots at his old team. It even led to Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier telling Jennings to knock it off.
“I don’t really recall saying anything negative about Aaron or anybody over there,” Jennings said to the media throng Thursday, per SI.com. “But hey, I apologize.”
The media pointed out that he called Aaron Rodgers by his name instead of “12,” which has been the norm since landing in Minnesota.
“Did I call him that?” Jennings said. “Oh, we’re talking about 12? Gotcha. No, he’s still 12. He’s still 12. I can’t give him that. He’s 12. He’s no longer the MVP. We have the MVP over here (running back Adrian Peterson).”
Jennings has said that the Packers know he is just having fun and not trash talking his former team.
“I remember someone telling me, (Rodgers) said, ‘Greg who?’ in some interview,” Jennings said. “He did that, I ran with it. James Jones joked. We texted each other. If the media wants to talk about it and blow it up, let them. I don’t want to be a distraction to this team. That’s the one thing I don’t want to do.”
