Aaron Rodgers issues lengthy statement about opposition to CBA proposal
The proposed CBA has been passed on to the players for a full vote, but several of those players have made it clear that they’re opposed to the proposal.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been one of the major dissenters in discussions about the current plan, and posted a statement outlining some of his objections to Twitter on Wednesday. Rodgers feels that the 17-game schedule was essentially forced on players, and argues that the league has not compensated for that extra game by adding more offseason recovery time for players.

Rodgers reportedly raised at least some of these issues in private as well.
Rodgers is definitely not the only one who feels this way. That said, the NFLPA is a huge organization, and a simple majority vote would pass the CBA proposal. It’s entirely possible the loudest voices here turn out to be a vocal minority.
