Aaron Rodgers could drop more hints about future in The Match
The latest rumors surrounding Aaron Rodgers and a possible trade to the Denver Broncos over the Independence Day weekend seem pretty status quo. The disgruntled Green Bay Packers quarterback and league MVP seems to still be disgruntled, and the Packers still seem to be not interested in trading him.
We’ll see how much time changes either of those things, if either changes at all.
At this point, it doesn’t seem as though the arrival of training camp is just going to magically fix everything between the Packers and Rodgers, and it’s been reported that the dispute between the two parties is not financial in nature, but who knows?
Rodgers has been grateful to spend time this offseason working on his mental health and gave a pretty interesting quote to the media ahead of The Match, a charity exhibition also featuring Tom Brady and pro golfers Bryson DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson.
"Sometimes the loudest person in the room is not the smartest person. Sometimes the loudest person in the room is not the person who has all the facts on their side or the truth on their side. Sometimes there’s a lot of wisdom in silence. Sometimes there’s a lot of wisdom in being selective on what you say.Aaron Rodgers (via ESPN.com)"
Rodgers was discussing the benefits of spending some time this offseason focusing on mental health, getting into the right frame of mind, and forming good habits.
It seems like Rodgers, while upset with the Green Bay Packers, is not allowing emotions to dictate his decision-making in this process of apparently trying to get out of Green Bay.
Aaron Rodgers vs. Tom Brady in The Match
During the 2020 offseason, it was Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning who brought the heat against Tom Brady in The Match and it was must-see television.
This event is obviously competitive, but it is for charity, and these four athletes will be mic’d up and unfiltered, talking trash and making comments to each other knowing full-well they are on national TV.
Because of the mostly unfiltered nature of the event, you can be sure that Tom Brady is going to take some jabs at Rodgers for his current dispute with the Packers, which could mean that we get some unfiltered answers from Rodgers about his future with the team.
It’s not like a trade is going to go down on live TV or anything like that, but it’s going to be worth tuning into TNT, TBS, or truTV at 2 PM MT.
Denver Broncos: 11 young players to watch closely at training camp
The Denver Broncos have one of the youngest rosters in the NFL. Which young players should fans be keeping an eye on at training camp?
We’ll have to watch to see if the Denver Broncos come up. Rodgers has apparently told people that he would like to end up in Denver if he’s traded, so we’ll see if Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson have caught wind of that rumor.
