Overall, Rodgers said he was surprised “there was such a story out there” after week one.
“What’s crazy to me is to let one storyline, by a person who has no contact with me, has zero relationship, that that becomes some sort of narrative that’s out there, that now I somehow don’t care about ball because of my zen attitude in the offseason,” the three-time MVP continued. “That’s the bulls–t I was talking about last night.”
And he left his followers with a few thoughts. “The trolls are out there, I get it,” Rodgers said, “but the truth and fact should not be replaced by conjecture, the old-founded conjecture, and when it is, and I’m thankful for this opportunity and for my pressers to say, ‘Hey look, just think about who’s saying these things.'”
One thing is for sure: Rodgers knows he can count on the support of Shailene Woodley during this season. “She’s still working in Albuquerque, but when she wraps, she plans to support him throughout his season,” a source close to Rodgers told E! News about the 29-year-old actress. “They don’t like to be apart for too long and are looking forward to being back in the same place again.”
