Minnesota Vikings receiver Greg Jennings took some shots at Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers this week, questioning his former teammate's leadership and accountability.

Rodgers chose not to get down in the mud with Jennings, and didn't fire back on Friday.

When asked whether he felt betrayed by Jennings, Rodgers said:

"Like I said last year when there were some comments kind of like this, Iíve got a great responsibility to the guys in this locker room and the fans and at this point, I donít have a whole lot of time or energy to spend worrying about things that are said outside the building. I know those are stories for you guys, but personally Iím focused on this team and obviously you hear about them but Iím not going to spend a lot of time or energy on them."

When asked whether Jennings' comments were disappointing, Rodgers said:

"You know what, to me Iím concerned with the opinions of the guys in this locker room and the guys we have here. We have 90 guys right now. Itís exciting to be able to be one of the leaders of this football team. Iím very confident in my style, I think the guys respond well to it. Itís fun being the oldest, longest tenured guy on the team. Iíve seen a lot, been around a lot, learned a lot of lessons and I think one of the lessons you learn is you canít control everything and you shouldnít worry too much about the things that are said outside the building. You worry about the opinions of your teammates and how they feel about you.Ē
