The more I think about this, the more it pisses me off. Yeah, sure Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is sad that his supposed boy, receiver Jordy Nelson, got released on Tuesday.
You know, he could have done something about that, though.
Rodgers had to wait around for his contract extension. He had to wait around until Kirk Cousins gets paid by the shitbag Minnesota Stinkings. He has to do so, so he could satiate his ego and then become the highest-paid player in the game again.
Danica will probably be real impressed. And happy, since she doesn’t have a career anymore.
I mean, sorry. But let’s say the Packers had completed Rodgers’ extension before free agency — something they said they wanted to do. Then perhaps the Packers would have had more salary cap space (likely). Perhaps, as we said earlier, they would been able to extend Randall Cobb (to create more space), in order to sign Jimmy Graham and Muhammad Wilkerson. Perhaps they wouldn’t have had to cut Jordy Nelson at all.
All just hypotheticals, of course. All hypotheticals Rodgers would not let the club explore.
But now AR is REAL sad. Sorry to see my friend go, but at least I will be the highest-paid player in the league again!
Could have done something about that, jackwagon.
But if it’s any consolation, the Packers cutting you allowed me to achieve one of my most vacuous goals!

Hard to find the right words today to express what 87 means to me. No teammate exemplified what it means to be a packer quite like him. From living in GB full time, his incredible contributions to the city, state, and region, to his consistent, reliable play on the field. Definitely a sad day and the toughest part of this business. There will never be another quite like white lightning. #leader #brother #friend #baller #loyal #champion #legacy #intact #stillcanplayball #backshoulder #1stSBTD
Still can’t believe they let Jordy go cause of the season he had with the worst backup quarterback in the NFL. Jordy would have taken less money to stay in GB and play with A-Rod. Especially since the Packers receivers always seem to be getting hurt. Hope he signs with Patriots and gets 1,500 yards & 15 touchdowns with Tom Brady. Lol.
Funny… Davante had no issues with the same quarterback. Nelson certainly isnt done… but if you think hes a 12 million a year wideout at this juncture you are living in 2010.
Funny…Adams is on the right side of the field, where would Hundley run to, his right? It’s natural he’s looking for him. Did McCarthy want Hundley running right, throwing back across the field to Nelson? I don’t think so either.
What was Nelson worth in 2016 coming off a ACL injury?
What has Cobb been worth the last 3 seasons in relation to his earnings?
Is the light coming on yet?
Ok, Mordi has brought us some clarity, it’s Aaron’s fault.
That was simple.
Good thing that’s cleared up.
Monty, you be sure to keep Mordi on the payroll, writing his vacuous articles.
Don’t be to quick to feel bad about Jordy, if you read what Gute said there could be a chance of him returning. He has a meeting with the Raiders tomorrow and I think it is to test the open market. The way it looks to me Jordy didn’t want to take a pay cut so will test free agency. Maybe just reading to much into this but one can only hope.
If I’m Rodgers I’m waiting for Matt Ryan to sign now..then using him as leverage when I sign my new contact with the team and coach of my choosing
He was given a chance to stay didnt take it case closed. But really pooping out whose fault it is Mort?
You will never get that Puliitzer at this rate!
Mordecai is a special kind of stupid. Even if Rodgers took a pay cut (which he shouldn’t) the front office obviously had a figure in mind as to what Jordy was worth to the team this year. Regardless of anything else happening. Doesn’t mean that the front office is right, but that is the reason Jordy was cut, not Rodgers upcoming extension
Play-Doh is actually (surprise!) correct.
But not all the way. I think this move also has a subtle tone or scent of “F you, Aaron.” From Gute and the front office. They wanted to extend Aaron, Aaron did not play the game by their rules, and this is their “pust business” way of pushing back.
Seriously, swapping an old WR for a shiny shiny old TE? At best that is a push. But Graham is a bad blocker who also has dropsies and is going to an offense poor at utilizing TEs. So they may well have downgraded just to give Aaron the old “F you!”.
Won’t sign with us on our time line? Want to be the highest paid QB in the game. Well, lookee here what we do to your best friend on the team….
Aaron is a lying prima donna. But he does have backbone. Not sure how good of a friend he is though. If he refuses to resign and leaves in a couple years we will know then.
Don’t be shocked when Aaron Rodgers gets traded. Like I said, you guys wanted Thompson gone, a new GM has come in, he may just want “his guy” to be the quarterback, especially now that his comments make Gutekunst look bad.
No way any one would trade one of the greatest and expect to win a super bowl without him. There isn’t a GM who would get rid of him.
