Colin Cowherd: “You lost arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL because you kept saying ‘ehhh, maybe I’ll play 1 or 2 years or maybe…’ Would Davante Adams really hold it against you if you had the three-year contract, did the three more years and then you left and left Davante hanging for a year? Davante would have been paid, would have been great, would have been a star, and a lock for the Hall of Fame. Rodgers was like ‘maybe I’ll retire in 1 year, or 2 years, or 3…’ DON’T TALK ABOUT IT. It’s called strategy. Aaron Rodgers is so into ‘Aaron’ that he feels the need to tell us everything about Aaron. Some stuff keep to yourself, keep it off Instagram, keep it off Twitter, it’s okay you don’t have to put every lunch on Twitter. Tom Brady after leaving New England went on Howard Stern and did his ‘I’m going to tell you everything interview’ after he left New England and he said he had made the decision to leave a year ago, but none of us knew because Tom kept it to himself, which was smart because if Brady would have put it out there it would have been a distraction the whole year. Tom is all about whatever it takes to win, including strategy. Tom, like LeBron James, is calculated. Aaron doesn’t care enough about the team, he’s just gotta tell you what he’s thinking, how he’s feeling, and what he’s going to do [and lost Adams because of it]. You know what? Keep it to yourself. Brady understands his words have an impact, Aaron is too smart not to know his words have an impact, he just doesn’t care.” (Full Segment Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd discuss the recent reports regarding the details of Davante Adams leaving the Packers for the Raiders in free agency this offseason, as reportedly Adams turned down more money from Green Bay because he was allegedly concerned that Rodgers was going to retire soon.
Check out the segment above as Colin calls out Rodgers for essentially spooking Adams into thinking he was retiring just because he loves to do ‘Aaron things', and ‘tell us everything about Aaron’ just to sound cool in interviews.
