Aaron Rodgers will face Tom Brady in CapitalOne’s “The Match” this week. Ahead of the golf event, Rodgers was asked about his offseason. And the 2020 NFL MVP had an interesting comment.
Aaron Rodgers is officially holding out from Packers training in a bid to sign a long-term contract. Rodgers’ skipped mandatory minicamp and it cost him over $93K. And that might just be a minuscule fine when compared to what he could be fined were he to skip training camp in July.

Aaron Rodgers detailed his offseason and revealed how he has worked to improve himself
During Monday’s press conference where Rodgers was present to promote his participation in Tuesday’s televised golf event with Tom Brady, Phil Mickelson, and Bryson DeChambeau Rodgers was asked how the last few months have gone for him.
“Sometimes, the loudest person in the room is not the smartest person,” Rodgers said. “Sometimes the loudest person in the room is not the person who has all the facts on their side of the truth on their side. And sometimes there’s a lot of wisdom in silence. Sometimes there’s a lot of wisdom in being selective on what you say. This offseason I’ve spent a lot of time working on myself.”
NOW HOLD ON JUST ONE MINUTE‼️

“I’ve focused on in the offseason about how to take care of myself — the total package,” Rodgers said. “Not just my physical self with workouts but my spiritual self with my own mindful practices, my mental health as well. What’s the best way to take care of that? And that’s what I’ve been doing this offseason. That’s why I’ve taken the time I’ve taken and done the things or not done the things that I’ve done. And I’m very thankful for that time.”
“I’m very thankful for the opportunity to work on my mental health. I haven’t dealt with bouts of depression or anything that for whatever reason are OK to talk about if you’re talking about mental health. I’ve just been really trying to think about what puts me in the best frame of mind.”
It’s good to hear Aaron Rodgers is doing well and it will be fun to watch former NFL MVPs go head-head. We’ll see Aaron Rodgers and co at Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Montana on July 6th. The group are expected to tee-off at 5pm ET and the event will be broadcasted on TNT.
