LaVar Arrington, Jonas Knox, and Brady Quinn react to Aaron Rodgers recent comments on "The Pat McAfee Show" and believe the quarterback has successfully built an inner circle that isolates himself from NFL Insiders.

Brady Quinn: "Aaron is very savvy, very calculated. He knows exactly what he's saying, why he's saying it, and who he's saying that to... I do wonder if there's a degree of someone maybe close to him or in proximity to him, maybe said something to someone, and they just got ousted out of the circle. They thought they were in the circle but they're not in the circle anymore. Maybe that invite has now been taken back."
Jonas Knox: "Aaron Rodgers wants to be able to control the narrative, he wants to be able to control what the messaging is, he wants to be able to tell his side of the story and get his messaging out. And the fact that he was so hell bent on making it a point that nobody knew when this retreat was going to happen and that it wasn't going to happen on Monday leads me to believe it absolutely was planned for Monday and it pissed him off that stuff got out and so now he's pushed it back a week. I think they were right. I think that bothered him and I think that's why he had a red ass during the interview yesterday."
LaVar Arrington: "He's making sure that he's his own exclusive and I'm not mad at that. I'm not mad at him for protecting that. I mean that means he can command a premium on whatever it is that he's doing."
