It came from inside the building and it came from outside. After Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers signed his record-breaking extension, people made jokes at his expense.
The two best troll jobs came from receiver Davante Adams and the Chicago Tribune.
Adams (we assume) joked that Rodgers still owed him $20.
Yet he still aint paid me my $20 I let em borrow in ‘16 https://t.co/j6eZDBwTR7

Adams should be okay. He signed a $58 million, four-year deal in December.
And here’s the Chicago Tribune, who also trolled Rodgers after his breakup with Olivia Munn.

Great that they used the photo from the Packers Welcome Back Luncheon, where Rodgers annually dresses up like a fool. I also enjoy the “Wisconsin man” part. That has to be a hat tip to The Onion, which was founded in Madison.
Rodgers was actually asked the Tribune tweet when he spoke to the media on Thursday. As expected, he was unbothered. He also pointed out the obvious, just for posterity’s sake.
Rodgers on Chicago Tribune's tweet 'Wisconsin man gets a pay raise': "They've done multiple headlines not mentioning by name and I find it all pretty comical. It is what it is. We've beat them a bunch in mine and Favre's eras over the past 20 years-or-so of Packer football."

He’s going to tear the Bears a new one this year.
