Earlier this week, Yahoo! Sports released an interesting article about Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, stating he was both ‘frustrated’ and ’emotional’ over a lack of communication from the front office prior to some important decisions this offseason.
Considering the Packers reportedly made the decision to let go of his favourite target in Jordy Nelson and quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt without speaking to him first, you might understand why Rodgers would be feeling frustrated.
However, it didn't take long for the man himself to respond to the reports that he was unhappy with the Packers' front office, and it appears he is using sarcasm to mock the legitimacy of the reports.
Rodgers had recently done a presser with the team's media about his place in the team, and when they published the article on the team's website, the quarterback responded to it in a tweet, and seemingly mocked the Yahoo! Sports report in the process.
He said in a tweet: "I feel like the title of this article needs more click bait. Come on GBP, make something up, or talk to some unnamed sources close to me or something to beef up the clicks. #dalailamaisapackersfan #bighitter #totalconsciousness #relax #fakenewstuesday #GBSnowday #meditation"
In case you were wondering, in terms of his place in the team, Rodgers said to Packers.com: “I know my role and that’s to play quarterback the best that I can, and the team is going to try to put the right guys in place, the right coaches in place, the right players in place, and you just have to trust the process.”
As to whether or not Rodgers is actually frustrated with the franchise right now remains to be seen. The quarterback has two years left on his contract, but is reportedly trying to work out a contract extension earlier than needed so so that he can stay with the team for longer.
Rodgers has said he still plans to play into his 40s and would like to play his entire career in Green Bay.
He said: “Obviously we’d like to lock something in at some point. The team has made that public knowledge, they’d love to do that. I’ve said many times I’d love to finish my career here. There’s more than mutual interest on both sides.”
If you're looking for signs of unrest, there doesn't appear to be any, for now.
