Teams Argue Packers Should Be Forced To Release Aaron Rodgers 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Dec 24, 2017 8:40 pm

Multiple teams have complained to the NFL league office that the Green Bay Packers violated rules regarding player eligibility on injured reserve.

Because Rodgers was activated off injured reserve, played last Sunday and was subsequently placed back on injured reserve without a new injury, rules state that Rodgers should have to be released.

Green Bay did not announce its decision to place Rodgers back on injured reserve until Tuesday, after the Packers had been eliminated from a potential postseason spot.

"Frankly, I don't see any issue with Aaron Rodgers going on IR," Mike McCarthy said Sunday. "My understanding is we communicated, followed the procedures and guidelines that you have to, to put a player on IR. So from our perspective, there's no issue."

Nobody in the NFL expects the Packers to have to release Rodgers.

It would be hilarious if they had to release him and he ended up on the Jets! Jets would be an instant contender.
