Sport Terry Bradshaw blasts 'weak' Aaron Rodgers for Packers drama: 'Go ahead and retire'
Why does Aaron Rodgers want out? Packers' Jordan Love, contract stalemate behind 49ers rumours
The Packers have their work cut out to salvage a relationship with Aaron Rodgers. Can it be done?ESPN's Adam Schefter detailed in a new report Thursday afternoon before the first round of the 2021 draft that Rodgers' developing desire to part ways with the Packers stems from a stalemate over a contract extension but goes deeper than that.
Terry Bradshaw keeps it raw with Aaron Rodgers.
The former Steelers quarterback and current NFL studio analyst made his displeasure known for Rodgers' handling of his current standing with the Packers in a radio spot with WFAN's "Moose and Maggie" in New York on Monday.
In the hit, Bradshaw was asked whether Rodgers has a right to be this disgruntled with Green Bay, to which the Hall of Fame QB held back no punches.
With him being that upset shows me just how weak he is. Who the hell cares who you draft? I mean, he's a three-time MVP in the league and he's this worried about who they drafted last year, No. 1? Now, I don't know what was said behind the scenes. I don't know if he said, "Look, I'll play this year, then I'll want out of here," and they said, "Fine." Then he's the MVP in the league. I don't know — none of us know, unless he told some insiders. …
Aaron Rodgers rumours: The release of Jake Kumerow was 'death knell' in relationship with Packers
Aaron Rodgers praised Jake Kumerow five days before the Green Bay Packers released him among their 2020 final roster cuts. Apparently, that decision irked Rodgers and put more strain on his relationship with the team.However, one of the apparent straws that broke the camel's back was something that not even the most passionate football fans would expect.
For him to be upset, my God. I don't understand that. Pittsburgh drafted Mark Malone No. 1, Cliff Stoudt in the third or fourth round — I had them coming at me from all angles. I embraced it, because when we went to practice, I wasn't worried about those guys. They didn't scare me a bit. So I don't understand why he's so upset at Green Bay. Then, if they fire the general manager, he'll come back? Are you kidding me? Really, Aaron? That's where this is? Here's what I'd do: I wouldn't budge. Let him gripe, let him cry. Retire. You're 38. Go ahead and retire, see you later. I'm really strong about stuff like that and it just makes him look weak.
A recent report from ESPN's Adam Schefter indicates that Rodgers has presumably played his last snap with Green Bay, and nothing short of the franchise firing general manager Brian Gutekunst would change his mind.

Rodgers and the Packers have been playing a cat-and-mouse game this offseason, with Rodgers' contract at the forefront of the issues: The team presumably wants to retain Rodgers for at least a year, but restructure his deal. Rodgers reportedly wants a contract extension, not a simple restructure.
Green Bay drafted quarterback Jordan Love with its first-round pick in 2020, leading to speculation that the Packers would be showing Rodgers the door. After an MVP season, trade rumors surrounding Rodgers surfaced, with the Rams and 49ers supposedly checking in on the availability of the superstar quarterback.
Rodgers seemingly had the support of his organization in recent months, but let it be known that he has no ally in Bradshaw.
