Aaron Rodgers garnered a ton of praise on Wednesday when he took to Instagram with his indirect response to Brees, who stated he disagrees with NFL players kneeling during the national anthem.
The Green Bay Packers QB posted a throwback photo of himself and Packers teammates interlocking arms, coupled with a caption that explained on-field protests never have or ever will be about the flag and/or national anthem.
Martellus Bennett saw right through it and called him out on it.
Bennett appeared in seven games for the Packers in 2017 before Green Bay released him mid-season with a “failure to disclose physical condition” designation.
Martellus refuted that by claiming the Packers tried to “f–k him over” as he dealt with a serious shoulder injury.
