It’s been an eventful offseason for some of the NFL’s star quarterbacks.
Multiple notable quarterbacks have reportedly showed interest in demanding trades. Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson and Aaron Rodgers have all reportedly expressed interest in moving on to a different team.
The Seahawks don’t appear to be trading Wilson, while the Texans are likely unable to move Watson until his legal situation is resolved.
Former Green Bay Packers GM Ron Wolf doesn’t appear to be a fan of these quarterbacks and their trade demands. He used one word to describe Rodgers and his colleagues: Diva.
“We have a lot of divas playing in the league right now,” Wolf said in an appearance on the Big Show Network, via ProFootballTalk. “I fail to understand that all these guys have long-term deals. I can’t believe the game has changed that remarkably.”
Rodgers is reportedly interested in a new contract, though his situation isn’t believed to be 100 percent contract based.
“It’s much more a respect situation than a contractual one. Rodgers feels like his opinion inside the building isn’t valued, and it’s been exacerbated by the team taking his supposed heir, Jordan Love, in the 2020 draft without informing him first. With no real deadline (including the mandatory June minicamp) approaching, there’s more reason to let this thing simmer down for a few weeks than to rush to a conclusion that might, today, be impossible to reach,” NBC Sports’ Peter King wrote this week.
If Rodgers isn’t moved, he and the Packers will open up the 2021 season on Sunday, Sept. 12 against the Saints in Week 1.
