NFL star Aaron Rodgers is currently the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers and is one of the team’s best players. However, he still doesn’t have a good relationship with the team’s organization, which has led to speculation that he might be traded to another team eventually.
For the past few weeks there has been speculation that Aaron Rodgers could be playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers next season. Rodgers added fuel to the rumors after gushing about the Steelers and their head coach Mike Tomlin.
He was caught speaking with Tomlin during this past Sunday’s Steelers-Packers game. While speaking on the Pat McAfee Show, Aaron Rodgers explained why he was ‘flirting’ with Mike Tomlin.
Rodgers then went on to insist that he was not trying to encourage a trade from the Packers to the Steelers.
I’m a big Mike Tomlin fan,” said Rodgers. “I have been for a long time. I like the way he speaks about his team. I like the way he goes about his business. I like his confidence. I’ve heard nothing but good things from guys that have played there. I like Mike Tomlin, and I also like that he called that timeout. We were trying to catch them with 12 men on the field. He was kind of smirking about that. I like that. I respect that.
I’m just speaking the truth,” he added. “They asked me a question about Mike Tomlin. If you want to take that and run with it and say I’m angling for some sort of next team, I’m not. I’m just answering the question about my respect for Mike and what he has accomplished in the league.”
It is unknown whether Aaron Rodgers will end up getting traded to another team by the time next season comes or not.
