Aaron Rodger’s ability out on the field has never been in question, but his attitude has been.

He went on to say, “This is not in any way scientific, because there aren’t a ton of NFL GMs and personnel people who hang around the Super Bowl. But Aaron Rodgers starts what he called a four-day darkness period in the pitch dark of a home, alone, today, and there was eyebrow-raising among a few league or team people I brought this up with, the reaction being: I can see why the Packers would consider trading him. Seems like a good person, but he might be more trouble than he’s worth. Not to the Jets.

Hopefully, Rodgers’s retreat will help him with the answer he is seeking, and the NFL world will get to see and appreciate his talents once again.
