Aaron Rodgers has been in the news ever since the lead-up to the NFL Draft night after ESPN reporter Adam Schefter reported the quarterback wants out of Green Bay. This shocked many fans, everyone besides former Steelers legend and HOF’er Terry Bradshaw who said on Tuesday that the way Rodgers has been acting has been ‘weak’ and has been babied and coddled by the franchise. In an interview with Collin Cowherd on his show The Herd, Bradshaw even added that Rodgers has the worst footwork he’s seen out of a starting QB.
"I do believe that while Aaron Rodgers is a phenomenal player, he has probably the worst footwork I've ever seen for a starting QB… He's coddled too much. He has no right to want to get the GM fired."

Rodgers has been disgruntled with the organization ever since the Packers decided to use their first-round pick of last year’s draft to take Jordan Love. That wasn’t the only issue, but according to Yahoo Sports’ Charles Robinson, the issue is Packers GM Brian Gutekunst. The organization failed to tell Rodgers before they drafted Love thus creating the current friction between the two parties. In another interview on Monday on WFAN’s Moose and Maggie show, Bradshaw says no matter who the franchise brings in, Rodgers shouldn’t be worried about it and just go out and compete.
“Him being that upset shows me how weak he is,” Bradshaw said. “Who the hell cares who you draft? He’s a three-time MVP in the league and he’s worried about this guy they drafted last year at No. 1?
Rodgers reportedly won’t return to the team if Gutekunst remains as the Packers GM, and is apparently prepared to stage a holdout or even retire and consider taking the permanent Jeporady! job if offered. Bradshaw absolutely hated that statement and encouraged him to do just that….retire.
“…Obviously he doesn’t need the money. Probably he should just retire and go do ‘Jeopardy.’… Either he gives in, or Green Bay don’t give in. Move on.”
Terry doesn’t know everything going on as there are things behind the scenes that will remain private but he is unsure whether Rodgers’ threats are empty or legit.
Rodgers was last spotted at this past weekend’s Kentucky Derby with his fiance Shailene Woodley and former teammate Randell Cobb.
