Mother of Shailene Woodley comments on Aaron Rodgers drama

Aaron Rodgers doesn’t talk much with the media or share his feelings on what is going on between him and the Green Bay Packers. That has left others to speak for him in the form of rumors, reports and, now, retweets.

Lori Woodley, the mother of Rodgers’ fiancee Shailene Woodley, gave a strong idea of Rodgers’ issues with Green Bay. She retweeted a video of ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith talking about Rodgers’ situation. In the video, Smith says that the Packers have not treated Rodgers well.

“It’s not about football. It’s not just about the money. This is about the way the Green Bay Packers have treated their star player. They have disregarded him. They have dismissed him. They have minimized him. They have disrespected him. And he said bump y’all, enough is enough,” Smith said.

Woodley added her own comments on top of the video, saying Smith’s words were “spoken truth.”

It looks like Lori Woodley is drinking the Rodgers Kool-Aid, but that shouldn’t come as a shock.

The Packers were in a tough situation with Rodgers — facing the late part of a career for a star player. Those situations are always tricky. It got ugly when the Packers parted ways with Brett Favre and drafted Rodgers. Then the Packers were preparing for the future by drafting Jordan Love and not wanting to commit tons of money to Rodgers as he aged. What’s so hard about that to understand?

Of course, Rodgers is a “complicated fella” who has a massive chip on his shoulder. He takes offense to slights and does not let them go. The Packers likely underestimated how poorly it would go over when they drafted Love. Either that, or they didn’t count on Rodgers having an MVP season and then telling the team to beat it.

Shailene Woodley Drops Major Hint at Why Aaron Rodgers Turned Down Contract With Packers

PopCulture.com 21 July, 2021 - 05:55pm

Aaron Rodgers reportedly turned down a contract extension with the Green Bay Packers, and his fiancee, Shailene Woodley, just dropped a major hint explaining why he made the move. The Divergent actress went to Twitter to retweet a video made by ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. In the video, Smith supports Rodgers turning down the contract, explaining the Packers quarterback doesn't want to be in Green Bay anymore.

“The bottom line is this: it’s not about football. It’s not just about the money, and it certainly isn’t about football,” Smith said. “The Green Bay Packers were 13-3 in back-to-back years under Matt LaFleur as the head coach. They went to back-to-back NFC Championship Games, which means they were part of the final four for two consecutive years. This is not about football. This is about the way that the Green Bay Packers have treated their star player. They have disregarded him. They have dismissed him. They have minimized him. They disrespected him, and he said ‘bump y’all.'”

Back in April, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Rodgers told people in the Packers organization that he doesn't want to return to the team as he's frustrated with the front office. The only time Rodgers talked about his situation was back in May when he appeared on SportsCenter. He said it started last year when the team didn't inform him they were going to trade up in the first round to draft quarterback Jordan Love. However, Rodgers made it clear he doesn't have anything against Love.

"With my situation, look it's never been about the draft pick, picking Jordan," Rodgers told Kenny Mayne of SportsCenter. "I love Jordan; he's a great kid. [We've had] a lot of fun to work together. Love the coaching staff, love my teammates, love the fan base in Green Bay. An incredible 16 years. It's just kind of about a philosophy and maybe forgetting that it is about the people that make the thing go. It's about character, it's about culture, it's about doing things the right way."

Rodgers has not said he won't be a training camp, which starts next week. However, the three-time NFL MVP hasn't been with the team all offseason, missing team workouts and the mandatory minicamp back in June. It's unlikely the team will trade him since the season starts in less than 50 days, which means if Rodgers doesn't return to the Packers, he could sit out the entire 2021 season.
