Coming on the heels of head coach Mike McCarthy’s comments yesterday that “When you put on that purple, something happens to you,” Aaron Rodgers was asked about his former teammate Greg Jennings following the first day of Green Bay Packers training camp practice on Friday.
Jennings has made several comments to numerous media outlets not-so-subtly critiquing both the Packers quarterback and the Green Bay organization as a whole. On several occasions, Jennings has referred to Rodgers as “12″ or “that guy they have now” instead of his name.
“You know what? To me, I’m concerned with the opinions of the guys in this locker room and the guys we have here,” said Rodgers on Friday. “We’ve got 90 guys right now. It’s exciting to be one of the leaders of this football team. I’m very confident in my style. I think the guys respond well to it. It’s fun being the oldest, longest-tenured guy on the team. I’ve seen a lot, been around a lot, learned a lot of lessons. And I think one of the lessons you learn is that you can’t control everything, and you shouldn’t 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.”
