Aaron Rogers Blasts Top NFL Insiders

Written by Tony Ghaul

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was not happy with NFL Insider’s Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter for what he called “false reporting” regarding his darkness retreat on Tuesday. Rodgers said on the Pat McAfee show that there is no national NFL reporter tied to his camp.

“Anybody who would talk to them is not in my inner circle,” Rodgers said in response to the planned retreat. “I don’t have a problem with Ian Rapoport and Schefter, they are really good at their jobs, but when it comes to me, they don’t know s–t.”

Rapoport, a frequent guest on McAfee’s show, previously reported that Rodgers’ darkness retreat would begin Monday and Schefter has previously said both the Packers and Rodgers are aware a trade of the quarterback is a “very real possibility” this offseason.

Rodger said he planned to head to a darkness retreat after the Super Bowl, spending three or four days sitting in “isolation, meditation, dealing with [my] thoughts.”

The star QB professed his love for the Green Bay Packers with McAfee.

“Eighteen years, man,” Rodgers said when asked about potentially joining the Indianapolis Colts, New York Jets or Las Vegas Raiders. “That’s always gonna be home.”
