Remember when Jermichael Finley‘s agent Blake Baratz said Aaron Rodgers isn’t a leader? Well, apparently no one on the Green Bay Packers gives a shit what Blake Baratz says, including Jermichael Finley.
“Like I said, he’s got his own opinion. He’s an agent. He has tons of clients around the league. It’s not my problem what he sends out. I could (not) care less as long as he takes care of my business at the end of the day,” Finley said, while noting he wasn’t responsible for the comments.
“He’s a leader, man. Me and him talk and meet often, so I know his leadership role. I know what he can do. He’s a leader at the end of the day.”
For his part, Rodgers brushed the comments off.
“Regardless of who it was, it’s not something that we worry about in this locker room,” Rodgers added. “It’s not even something that I felt like I needed to have a sit-down conversation with Jermichael about because it didn’t come from him.”
While Rodgers played it cool, coach Mike McCarthy sounded like his panties were slightly bunched.
“To me that’s not something that’s, you know, I don’t really get involved with ignorant comments on social media,” McCarthy said. “That is not a locker room issue in my view. We spend a lot of time talking about the culture and more importantly what goes on with the health in our locker room. I feel strongly that we have a very healthy locker room. So that’s something that hasn’t been discussed.”
That’s pretty much what we expected from the Packers.
Here’s the real question though. Does Jermichael Finley need a new agent?
If I were him, I’d have to wonder what the hell my agent is doing making people question my relationship with my quarterback.
