Aaron Rodgers has made a lot of enemies over his illustrious 17-year career. Many of them are fans of teams he's terrorized, but others are simply not fans of the quarterback's behavior and personality.
One of the latter is Shannon Sharpe, a Hall of Fame tight end and current analyst. Sharpe lit into Rodgers in an explosive rant on Undisputed.
"Brah, you've been recognized as the best of the best four times. And three of those times, a lot of those times you look bad, you look downright awful. I guarantee you winning another MVP will not change the perception of you like a championship would."
"Here's a guy that has been back-to-back and had won four MVPs. Twice, back-to-back, and then another gap and back-to-back again. And what does he have to show for that in that timeframe? Nothing."
Sharpe believes there's a real disdain for Rodgers among NFL fans, himself included:
"It's always something and at some point in time, Green Bay and he talking about 'Oh, I embraced the role of being the villain.' People don't think you're a villain. People think you're a backside hole because of the way you conduct yourself. That's what people think... He just irks me. He just makes my skin crawl because he just selfish."
Aaron Rodgers has been called a lot of names over the years, but Sharpe may have come up with the most unique one.
Where will Aaron Rodgers play next year?
Speculation began as soon as the final whistle blew on Aaron Rodgers' 2022 season. Where will he play next? Is he going to retire?
Those are valid questions. He can retire as he's talked about it before. He could also end up somewhere other than Green Bay for the first time in his career.
Ian Rapoport said that the Packers would consider a trade for the right package. This effectively means teams can call about him and the answer won't immediately be no.
He also mentioned recently that he'd be open to restructuring his contract, thus signaling that he's open to going elsewhere and not totally handicapping them financially.
That means the New York Jets, Las Vegas Raiders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and many other teams may want to start calling the Packers right away.
