Packers Literally Seem Like They're Trolling Aaron Rodgers by Sitting Idly by While Rivals Select Wideouts
By Jerry Trotta
A plethora of analysts are finding it difficult to come to terms with the Green Bay Packers' strategy in the 2020 NFL Draft. If we didn't know any better, we'd say that the franchise was intentionally trying to antagonize Aaron Rodgers.
First, the Packers (despite trading up) passed on a wide receiver in the first round in favor of selecting Rodgers' future replacement in Utah State quarterback Jordan Love.
Flash forward to Day 3, and Green Bay is now forcing its two-time MVP to watch NFC North rivals bolster their own receiving corps.
It's almost impossible to fathom, but of the 27 WRs that have heard their name called across the first five rounds of the Draft, ZERO have been taken by GM Brian Gutekunst.
Like we said: it really seems like the Packers are purposely trolling Rodgers. Are they trying to force the 36-year-old out of town?
Sadly, this goes beyond Green Bay's refusal to draft a wideout. The franchise hinted at the potential exit of star running back Aaron Jones -- Rodgers' second favorite target in the passing game behind Davante Adams -- by drafting Boston College product AJ Dillon in the second round.
It's really as if the Packers are going out of their way to alienate the player that is the sole reason they are perennial Super Bowl contenders. Without him, Green Bay wouldn't sniff the postseason. Taking into account everything that Rodgers given to the organization, this is a ridiculous hill to die on.
