Aaron Rodgers breaks silence on Packers drama, confirms rift with team in off-camera talk with NBC announcer

Although there’s been a lot of speculation about Aaron Rodgers over the past 48 hours, it should be noted that none of that has come from Rodgers himself. With rumors flying around that he wants out of Green Bay, the Packers quarterback had the chance to clear the air on Saturday during an off-camera talk at the Kentucky Derby and all he did was muddle things even more. 

During the derby broadcast, NBC’s Mike Tirico noted that he ran into Rodgers at Churchill Downs and although Rodgers was unwilling to speak on camera, the reigning NFL MVP did talk with Tirico and here’s what the NBC announcer had to say about the conversation.

Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald found himself in a tricky situation earlier this week, as he was accused of assaulting a man outside a Pittsburgh-area nightclub.

Fortunately for Donald, a video surfaced on Friday that showed him actually pulling people off of Spriggs outside the nightclub. He was breaking up the fight, not initiating it.

After getting knocked out of the playoffs earlier this year, Aaron Rodgers admit that he wasn’t sure how much longer he’d be the starting quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. On Friday, the three-time MVP once again discussed his future with the franchise that drafted him.

During an appearance on ESPN’s SportsCenter, Rodgers was asked by Kenny Mayne if he wants to be a Packer for life. Rodgers’ answer pretty much lined up with what he said back in January.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers reiterated Friday on SportsCenter that his future with the team is not in his control.

Speaking to Kenny Mayne about ending his career with Green Bay, Rodgers said, “I don’t know that a lot of that’s in my hands.”

Rodgers had expressed a similar sentiment on The Pat McAfee Show in January (h/t Bill Huber of Packer Central).

“To me, a reality, not a certainty or an absolute, is that my future is not in my hands.

“Now, that’s really the case of all of us as players. Naturally, there’s time when you let your mind go to maybe, ‘I’m going to be a Packer for life.’ Or, ‘I’m going to
