Aaron Rodgers remains away from the Green Bay Packers, though it’s pretty clear that his teammates continue to have his back.

Tuesday, several Packers players met with the media and, unsurprisingly, they were asked about the ongoing drama with their star quarterback.

Green Bay’s players sent a clear message on the subject: They have Rodgers’ back.

Packers star wide receiver Davante Adams sent the most blunt message on the subject.

“I’ve got his back through everything so he knows that, at the end of the day, if there’s ever a wonder if he’s lost a teammate or something because of all that’s come out, he knows where I stand,” Adams said.

“I’ll stand on the f–king mountain and scream on the mountaintop that I’ve got his back.”

Another Packers veteran, offensive tackle David Bakhtiari, had a similar message.

Julius Randle very nearly led the New York Knicks back from an 18-point deficit against their crosstown rivals, the Brooklyn Nets, but despite his 33-point effort, his team fell short due to a controversial call. With 3.2 seconds left in the game, Randle went up to attempt a game-tying 3-pointer, but because Kyrie Irving made contact with the ball, he did not release it. He was called for traveling, the Nets gained possession, and the game functionally ended there. 

Randle was not happy about this. Even after the game ended, he gave a slight shove to Nets forward Jeff Green with his shoulder. Teammate Obi Toppin needed to hold him back from going after official Scott Foster, and he proceeded to toss a chair on his way down the tunnel after exiting the floor.
