Antonio Brown has switched from trolling Tom Brady and Derek Carr to now going at Aaron Rodgers. For whatever reason, Brown, the former Tampa Bay wideout, decided to take aim at the QB after the Green Bay Packers loss to the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football.
Brown wrote: “I bet Arod appreciate the WRs now wonder why Adams left.”
Rodgers has struggled this season, with Green Bay’s record sitting at 4-7. There seems to be a correlation between the Packers’ woes and their trading All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders over the offseason.
Once the Packers signed Rodgers to a three-year, $150 million contract extension, they didn’t have enough cap space to sign Adams to a lucrative new deal.
The trade actually made both teams worse than they were the previous season. Now both are looking to miss the postseason after being there just months ago.
Rodgers threw two touchdowns but averaged just 5.8 yards per attempt, completing 24 of 39 throws for 227 yards on Thursday night.
Rodgers and the Packers will have their work cut out for them to bounce back as they face the 8-1 Philadelphia Eagles on the road a week from Sunday.
