Aaron Rodgers is a perplexing character. The quarterback is usually reserved and refrains from making comments which would see him make the front page. But then again, there is a side of Aaron Rodgers that is as upfront as any in the NFL.

The quarterback who was recently involved in a trade saga wanted out of the Packers franchise. His beef was with the Packers front office. A front office that has failed to give the quarterback the due respect he deserves multiple times in the past. 

From drafting his replacement without informing him to cutting players he felt were crucial to the side’s progress over the years, Aaron Rodgers had legitimate reasons for feeling that he was given the short end of the stick.

But following an MVP season in 2020, the quarterback decided to take a stand. Opting to hold out and not appear for OTAs and minicamp, the QB flexed his muscle but let his actions do the talking. 

While the franchise seems to have made amends for now with their star QB, Rodgers’ future remains unclear. In his first interview back with the Packers, Rodgers listed down exactly why he felt he was being undone by the Packers management. 

And now apart from press conferences, Rodgers will have another outlet to express what going on in his mind.
