Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy joined the chorus bashing a Bleacher Report story about the recent history between Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers.
In an interview with Scott Emerich of WXOW on Wednesday, Murphy denied a quote attributed to him in the story published last week claiming he told Rodgers “don’t be a problem” during a phone conversation regarding the hiring of new coach Matt LaFleur.
“It’s all in the past. It’s a lot of half-truths and a lot of stuff just made up,” Murphy told Emerich. “The conversation that allegedly took place between Aaron and I was completely false. We had a great conversation. It was very positive. We talked about Matt LaFleur and I said ‘Aaron, I think this change is going to be great for you and the organization,’ and he was very positive.”
Rodgers had previously denied that specific part of the report.
Murphy noted that all this talk should help motivate the former MVP signal-caller in 2019.
“I think this is going to be great motivation for him and the team. You hate to have your dirty laundry aired but I do think it’s going to be a positive,” he said.
The Packers offseason has been an absolute disaster from a PR perspective.
I’m pretty sure they’re all ready to play football and put this offseason behind them.
