Jennings left to explain sister’s Rodgers rant
Jennings called his sister, who has since changed her Twitter name and made her account private, the moment he stepped out of the locker room.
"I'm like, 'C'mon, you can't do that to me,' " Jennings said Wednesday. "I'm not mad at her, I'm not saying it was right, I'm not saying it's wrong. It's her opinion. She puts me in a position where I have to answer to you guys, which, selfishly, that's unfair."
The timing of the comments were particularly notable because Jennings had by far his best game of the season, catching eight passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns. Rodgers, meanwhile, completed 28-of-40 passes for 365 yards, four touchdowns and a near-perfect 131.8 QB rating.
"I didn't care for it, particularly, but everyone's entitled to their own opinion," Jennings said. "Social media's like that. I look at my timeline sometimes and there aren't too many Greg Jennings fans out there sometimes. You know, she's entitled to her own opinion. I'm going to give her a call and let her see the playbook, and maybe she'll be more satisfied with the playbook this week and see if I'm implemented as much as she would like."
Jennings, who is a free agent this season, has stated several times in recent months that he's not sure if he'll remain with the Packers after this year.
"I just told her that she should probably say, 'These are your feelings and not mine," Jennings said. "I kind of play both sides of it because, as a person that's on Twitter and people who are on Twitter, you feel like you can say whatever you want to say. She's no different; she's just my sister, so it's a big deal. There are people who are on Twitter that say whatever they want to say every single day and it's no news.
"It's only news because she's my sister. There are probably more than her that are talking about Aaron, myself, the Green Bay Packers. It's not news when it comes to that, but, because she's my sister and my position and my situation, it can be news."
Jennings added that he has talked to Rodgers this week about the comments and that he believes there are no issues between the two. Jennings also said his sister's opinions were not the result of any private comments he's made around his family.
