Ex-Packer says he has no relationship with Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers and Greg Jennings racked up some good numbers together when they were teammates at Green Bay, but they haven’t exactly kept in touch. It’s no coincidence, as Jennings reminded everyone recently.

Jennings was asked by Chris Tomasson of Pioneer Press this week that Rodgers broke Favre’s Packers team record of 442 touchdown passes. The former receiver praised Rodgers on the long journey he has taken to get there. However, Jennings also confirmed that the relationship between him and Rodgers remains strained. He described it as “non-existent”.

“We don’t text, we don’t communicate like that,” Jennings said. “We haven’t had a formal session, like bringing it all in for a hug, since I left Green Bay. … We had a great relationship (in Green Bay)… Our relationship is now non-existent. I tried to fix it but without success. The acceptance on his side just wasn’t there.

Jennings left the Packers in 2013 and signed with divisional rival Minnesota Vikings. He was criticizing Rodgers at the time for not being a team player and for not supporting him. Jennings said he tried to apologize, but Rodgers was not receptive.

“My kids would love to meet him and be able to say, ‘Hey, you played with my dad,’” Jennings said. “Their favorite team is the Packers so we talk about that a lot at home. … But everything heals over time.

Rodgers is known to hold a grudge. Jennings said some unflattering things about him several years ago, and the reigning MVP clearly hasn’t let go. This is hardly a surprise to anyone familiar with the Rodgers family drama.

Maybe Rodgers and Jennings will bury the hatchet one day. The Packers quarterback probably isn’t giving it much thought at the moment.
