Jennings has made a few negative comments about his former Green Bay teammate since signing with the NFC North rival Vikings in March. In one interview, Jennings chose Brett Favre over Rodgers and wouldn’t call Rodgers by name. Then, last week, Jennings criticized Rodgers by saying the MVP quarterback does not hold himself accountable.
When offered a chance to respond to the criticism, Rodgers said he was only concerned about his team, not former teammates. It sounds like Frazier would like Jennings to take the same approach.
“We’re the Vikings and we want to talk about us, what we’re trying to get done,” Frazier said of his meeting with Jennings, per the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “That’s where our focus has to be. There’s so much work to be done, and we don’t want to be looking at what’s happening with other teams, other teams’ players. We’ve got to focus on us. He’s good with that.”
Frazier also said he hopes this will be the last of the Jennings-Rodgers stories. I don’t blame him. Rodgers is already one of the top quarterbacks in the league and a guy the Vikings have to play at least twice a season. The last thing Frazier wants is Rodgers to have more motivation to stick it to them when the teams play, all on account of the new guy’s trash talk.
