Aaron Rodgers said there should be talks about his contract, then called it fake news

Aaron Rodgers appeared on the Wilde and Tausch radio show on ESPN Wisconsin Wednesday, and was asked whether Mike Glennon’s payday in free agency means Rodgers is due for a raise.

Host Jason Wilde tweeted about the exchange, just as Rodgers said on the show:

To be fair, that sequence is exactly what it sounds like based on what Rodgers said. It also wouldn’t be an outrageous thought that Rodgers would hint at something to the media, as he did towards the end of the season.

Back in January after their NFC Championship loss to the Falcons, Rodgers said, “I don’t think we need to rebuild. We need to reload.” He added, “We’ve just got to make sure we’re going all-in every year to win. And I think we can take a big step this offseason.”

Lawson also failed to honor the 48-hour community service requirement of his probation, according to the Post, and did not receive the required 52 hours of therapy. He is scheduled for a probation violation revocation hearing on March 22 in Denver, according to the Post.

After a down 2015-16 season, Lawson is averaging 9.3 points, 4.6 assists, and a steal through 51 games in Sacramento. He is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.

Lawson’s problems with alcohol abuse go back several years
On Jan. 23, 2015, Lawson was charged with driving under the influence after being pulled over for driving 61 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone, according to the Post. The arresting officer said his “breath had a strong odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage, balance was swaying/stumbling, eyes were bloodshot/watery.”

He pleaded guilty to driving while ability impaired and failing to drive in a single lane, and admitted to drinking before driving, according to FOX31 Denver.21
