Rodgers later explained to Conan O’Brien(!) the aftermath of the play that cost him all but one of Green Bay’s final 10 games.
I looked over at him as I walked off the field, Rodgers said. Cameras caught me saying something to him, but what they missed was him (giving me the) finger (and the)’suck-it’ sign.
Let’s be honest here: Sam Bradford probably shouldn’t be too fired up for revenge against anybody. No quarterback in the NFL this decade has made more money, and he’s pulled it off without a single playoff start to his ledger. But perhaps one can understand why Bradford might be miffed with a Vikings team that decided to shell out huge dollars for Kirk Cousins rather than retain the quarterback who started their 2017 with a scintillating performance against the Saints in Week 1.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News noted after the deal that New England had an affinity for Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield.
The rumors are generating additional interest after ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported longtime Patriots starter Tom Brady has not committed to playing in 2018.
If the organization is concerned Brady may be coming near the end of his legendary career, the talk about it trading up for a QB would make a lot more sense. Before now, it felt more like a smokescreen since the AFC East rival New York Jets and Buffalo Bills are both in the market to upgrade at the position.
Rosen completed 60.9 percent of his throws for 9,340 yards with 59 touchdowns and 26 interceptions across 30 games at UCLA.
He’s been competing with Mayfield, Sam Darnold (USC), Josh Allen (Wyoming), Lamar Jackson (Louisville) and Mason Rudolph (Oklahoma State) for positioning within the loaded quarterback group. He should come off the board during the first half of Round 1, potentially inside the top five.
I was like,’I don’t know how that ball’s getting around like that,’ Cohen said. But I know it’s going to be a good thing because we have as many weapons as we do, to know that everybody’s still going to be able to get the ball and get the yards, it’s a wonderful thing.
