Patrick Mahomes Gives His Take On Aaron Rodgers Feud With Packers
With Aaron Rodgers dropping cryptic notes on Instagram regarding his ongoing dilemma with the Green Bay Packers, plenty of others have chimed in with their own thoughts regarding the matter. You can add Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes to that list.
The superstar quarterback was asked about the situation unraveling in Green Bay between the front office and Rodgers. Via James Palmer of the NFL Network:
“I think the biggest thing, and I can’t speak for Aaron and the Packers. But i think the biggest thing when you look as an outsider it’s all about communication. It’s all about respecting each other as a human being and communicating with each other. Aaron has played a long time for that organization and at some point they lost that communication factor. I think that’s where the disconnect just kind of happened.”
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Tuesday that Rodgers earlier this offseason declined a two-year contract offer which would have made him the highest-paid player in football.
“Rodgers declined the offer, proof it’s not about the money,” Schefter noted.
The 37-year-old signed a four-year, $134 million extension with Green Bay in 2018. He’s scheduled to earn $14.7 million in base salary for the upcoming campaign, only $6.8 million of which is guaranteed.
“The Packers offering Aaron Rodgers more money, more years, more guarantees, whatever doesn’t really change things,” former Packers VP Andrew Brandt tweeted Tuesday. “Those upgrades will all transfer to the new team upon a trade, which I think will happen…in 2022.”
