Terry Bradshaw called out Aaron Rodgers in an interview on Monday, calling the Packers quarterback “weak” for getting upset about Green Bay’s draft picks.
“Him being that upset shows me how weak he is,” Bradshaw told WFAN’s “Moose and Maggie” on Monday. “Who the hell cares who you draft? He’s a three-time MVP in the league and he’s worried about this guy they drafted last year at No. 1? … And for him to be upset, my god, I don’t understand that.”
A report surfaced just before the draft last week that Rodgers wanted out of Green Bay, and it is believed that the primary source of his unhappiness with the Packers stems from the team’s draft strategy, including trading up to grab Jordan Love in the first round last year.
But Rodgers gets no sympathy from Bradshaw, as the former Steelers quarterback said that the team shouldn’t “budge” when it comes to giving in to his demands.
“Let him gripe, let him cry — retire, you’re 38, go ahead and retire, see you later,” Bradshaw explained.
Rodgers is reportedly open to retiring if the Packers refuse to trade him, though considering he led the team to the NFC Championship Game last season while winning his third career MVP, it’s unclear how serious of a threat that really is for a guy who still appears to have a lot of good football left to play.
