Aaron Rodgers blasts Bleacher Report story as ‘smear attack’

Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has come out strongly against a recent Bleacher Report story that painted a rather unflattering picture of both himself and former coach Mike McCarthy.

Appearing on ESPN Milwaukee on Monday, Rodgers called the story a “smear attack” consisting of anecdotes from “irrelevant, bitter players who all have an agenda.”

Rodgers denied specific aspects of the story as well, including an allegation that Packers CEO Mark Murphy told Rodgers “don’t be the problem” upon informing him of new coach Matt LaFleur’s hiring.

The Bleacher Report story was not flattering for Rodgers. One portion of it claimed that he consistently undermined McCarthy’s coaching, going as far as to force his wide receivers to choose between listening to him or the coach. Obviously, it’s in his best interest to shoot this stuff down as quickly as he can.

If Rodgers is telling the truth, it would seem he knows who’s behind the leaks. It may be worth dealing with that behind-the-scenes.
