  • Aaron Rodgers owns the Chicago Bears.

  • At least, that’s what he told Bears fans after scoring the game-sealing touchdown on Sunday.

  • With a 22-5 career record against the Bears, he’s not wrong.

The Green Bay Packers may be the only publicly owned team in football, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers is diversifying his investments.

With just over four minutes left in Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, Rodgers scrambled for a six-yard rushing touchdown to put the Packers ahead 24-14, all but sealing the win for visiting Green Bay.

As boos rained down from the Chicago crowd, Rodgers jeered in response, which was caught on camera by the broadcast.

“All my f—ing life, I own you,” Rodgers shouted as his teammates surrounded him in the end zone. “I still own you. I still own you.”

After the game, Rodgers joked about his comment.

I’m told Robinson is ready to try

It appears as though Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson is down to two options: Play the 2021 season under the $17.8 million franchise tag or hold out. 

According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Bears and Robinson “are not expected to reach a long-term extension.”

On Sunday, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler predicted during an appearance on SportsCenter that Robinson would play out this season on the tag (h/t Alex Seats of 247Sports.com):

“Talks have been pretty slow. There’s a decent chance he plays this year out on the tag, They’re going to leave the door open for talks in the final days and hours and sort of hope for the best, but there simply has not been much momentum. I’m told Robinson is ready to try to put up big numbers this year and try to smash free agency in 2022. He’s
