Greg Jennings, former wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers, has been making quite a splash this off-season with his comments about his former team. Despite being asked to back off by his current employer (the Minnesota Vikings), Jennings hasn’t let up on his criticisms of Green Bay’s franchise, going as far as saying his former team “brainwashed” him.
One guy unfazed by the situation, however, is quarterback Aaron Rogers. Rogers addressed Jennings’ comments in an interview with Peter King at MMQB.com:
People taking shots at me who aren’t relevant to this team and to this locker room doesn’t mean a whole lot to me. Those comments do wash over with me without a reaction, because they don’t matter.
Rogers also shared some interesting thoughts on the media:
I love our game, but to me, there’s too much access. It’s way over the top. From the camera in the locker room, from the center being miked, to all the attention … Everybody’s watching. Everybody’s listening. And social media: If I’m out, more than likely, there’s going to be a camera on me, and a picture or video’s going to show up somewhere.
The Packers and the Vikings will meet twice this season: October 27th and November 24th.
