Aaron Rodgers: Prepared To Deal With Nasty Slurs
“Some jokes in the locker room so far have been brutal with some saying stuff like, ‘No wonder he plays for the Packers’ among other derogatory statements,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
And with Aaron’s Green Bay Packers slated to face off against their rivals, the San Francisco 49ers, on Jan. 5, the insider confirms the hard truth that this scandal has given Aaron’s opponents ample amounts of trash talk material.
“The NFL is littered with so much awful trash talk that the San Francisco defense will be on Aaron’s case all game with comments about his sexual preference,” the source adds. “The players are a**holes on the field and will use anything they can to gain an advantage and Aaron is prepared for it.”
