Rodgers shrugs off critical tweets by Jennings' sister

Jan. 4, 2013
 

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he doesn’t have a problem with critical comments made about him on Twitter by the sister of receiver Greg Jennings.

“That kind of stuff is never going to come between myself and my teammates,” said Rodgers on his ESPN Milwaukee radio show on Thursday: http://bit.ly/110DBEH

“That’s never going to become between Greg and I. We got a great relationship … not going to fault Greg or his sister for anything that was said. I mean it was family and emotions. Not a big deal.”

Jennings said earlier this week he was unhappy with his sister’s critical tweets about Rodgers and the Packers’ organization during last week’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Jennings’ sister, Valyncia Jennings, tweeted a series of comments saying that Rodgers was ignoring her brother and at one point called him “the most overrated QB in the league!" She also called the Packers organization cheap and unappreciative, presumably because the team isn't likely to re-sign Greg Jennings, who will become an unrestricted free agent after the season.

Rodgers said on his radio show: "You know I think we have all seen over the years and in training camp we got a presentation about some of the stuff athletes have said on Twitter that is a little silly, but you know you just remember the power that Twiiter has. The fact that someone’s opinion can ring all over the country and get a lot of press like that, you know stuff on the Internet like it's said in one of my favorite movies The Social Network, "It’s written in ink.” You know it stays there awhile."
