Greg Jennings has issued an apology to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Jennings has come across bitter towards Rodgers and the Packers since signing a contract with the Minnesota Vikings.
Jennings is now giving some praise to his former teammate.
“Aaron’s a phenomenal quarterback,” Jennings told Mark Craig of the Star-Tribune. “He knows that. No one needs to tell him that. What he’s done over the course of the last five years? Phenomenal. He set the bar high for quarterbacks in this league. He set the bar high for offenses in this league. Everything I say is all out of fun. I’m just saying something just to say it. They know that’s not me.”
The decision to stop talking about his former team came at the request of Vikings coach Leslie Frazier.
“I was on the field and [Frazier] ran over to me and asked me what I said,” Jennings explained. “That was really the gist of it. He said, `Keep it about our guys.’ Literally, that was it. I don’t really recall saying anything negative about Aaron or anyone over there, but, hey, I apologize.”
Even if he has not told Rodgers personally.
“No. For what?” Jennings asked. “I’m apologizing right now. If it got to him with [the media] right now, I feel if I apologize right here, he’ll hear that, too. Will you make sure he hears that?”
