A day after Aaron Rodgers spoke publicly about his ongoing feud with the Green Bay Packers, suggesting he objects to the current front office's "philosophy," declining to deny reports that he wants out and acknowledging his willful absence from team OTAs, it appears the star quarterback isn't the only Packer set to stir the pot this spring. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, top wide receiver Davante Adams -- and four of Green Bay's other top pass catchers -- joined Rodgers in skipping OTAs on Tuesday.
Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, Devin Funchess and Equanimeous St. Brown were all no-shows at the start of this week's voluntary program, per Schefter. While no veterans are required to attend the earliest OTAs, it's not common for basically an entire position group to sit out, let alone on the same day the team's MVP QB is also absent. Adams and Co. failing to attend Tuesday left stand-in QB Jordan Love, Green Bay's 2020 first-round pick, "with a makeshift crew," as Schefter put it. More importantly, it may indicate Rodgers has teammates willing to vouch for him in a reported dispute with team brass.
