Rodgers responds after reaction over contract
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made an appearance on the "Wilde & Tausch Show" on Wednesday morning for a rare offseason interview.
Rodgers, who was calling from California, spoke on a wide range of topics. He reiterated his "all in" remark made after the Packers' loss in the NFC championship game. And when asked whether the amount of money being talked about for unproven free-agent quarterbacks such as Mike Glennon should lead to talks about his contract, Rodgers said, "I think it has to."
Rodgers later downplayed the reaction to his contract comment in a tweet, using a #fakenews hashtag.
The interview was recorded Tuesday and aired on ESPN Wisconsin (540-AM). Here is a summary of Rodgers’ comments:
