Aaron Rodgers had not yet seen the video of Tom Brady throwing a tablet on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sideline during Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints in the third quarter.
On Wednesday, the Green Bay Packers quarterback wanted to note that if Brady threw it, it was different from his now infamous tablet during the 2015 season.
“Tossed,” Rodgers said Wednesday. “Tossed,” he repeated.
“I don’t think I threw it hard enough for any damage to happen to it,” Rodgers added.
Rodgers went on to add that he has since resisted the urge to throw a tablet in anger.
“Tempted? Aw, s—, all the time,” Rodgers said. “Actually doing? I’ve done it once. Not the tablet’s fault, but it’s hard to remind yourself of that in the moment … I’ve tossed it to where it’s hit the ground only one time. I might’ve tossed it to one of the guys who holds onto it, but I’ve only tossed it once. And it wasn’t an intent to smash it. It was just, ‘Get away from me.”’
Brady apologized for his latest outburst, which was easy to do since the Bucs won the game.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers star wide receiver Mike Evans will not be active for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers after the NFL decided to uphold his one-game suspension for his role in a fight with New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore.
Evans will miss out on around $62,000 in game day pay.
The Bucs have since signed Cole Beasley.
