The Green Bay Packers are still trying to get a new deal done with Aaron Rodgers.
AR told fat man Peter King he wants to play until he’s 40. I think we’d likely all welcome that. Although I will never welcome King’s “nuggets” and “coffee-whateverness.” Write something that isn’t 8 million words, isn’t non-sensical and doesn’t eventually make you the center of your conversation, Pete.
Okay, that aside, as we know EVERYONE is saying a new deal for QB1 will happen “soon.”
And we’ve been hearing that since February.
Good job on the soon thing, guys. You don’t know the definition of soon.
But listen, it’s going to get done. Cue Ginger Gap Tooth.
“Obviously, he’s an important player,” Mark Murphy said. “He wants to be here, and we want him to be here. When both sides have a common interest, you get deals done.”
But just not yet. You just don’t get deals done yet.
Months and months and you don’t get deals done. But a deal will happen. The fact that it hasn’t happened yet likely has something to do with the fact that Rodgers has two years left on his current deal and that he wants multiple player options.
Rodgers isn’t worried about it. And why would the Packers be?
They can sit on their hands for two years.
The important thing here, however, is that Ginger Gap Tooth is not the face of the franchise.
“You know, each player is different; each situation is different,” Murphy said. “Aaron has been great — obviously a great player. But my wife says it’s a good thing he’s the face of the franchise and not you. He represents the organization well.”
Here is the first thing that I’m appalled about. The fact that Alfred E. Neuman has a wife.
Can you imagine what she looks like? I mean, some people marry for money and GGT certainly has plenty of that, but I doubt that was the case here.
If your wife is telling you to hide your ugly mug, then maybe you have some issues.
