Aaron Rodgers: Report of his feud with McCarthy was a 'smear attack'

In a wide-ranging and deeply sourced piece for Bleacher Report, Tyler Dunne last week chronicled the dysfunction of the Packers during the Aaron Rodgers/Mike McCarthy Era as seen through the eyes of several former players and others associated with the team. Some sources were on the record. Some were off. But the overall picture it painted was as detailed as it was unflattering. On Monday, Rodgers spoke publicly for the first time about the report. Predictably, he was not happy. "The thing is ab...

Can the Seahawks afford to break the bank for DE Frank Clark?

Quarterback Russell Wilson, who has one year remaining on his current deal, wants a new contract in place by April 15 and is probably expecting to equal or surpass the $35 million per year Green Bay is paying Aaron Rodgers. Add to that situation Seattle defensive end Frank Clark, whom the Seahawks placed the franchise tag on in order to keep him for exploring free agency.

Is Russell Wilson sending the Seahawks a message?

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson created some news on Friday when asked by Jimmy Fallon whether Wilson anticipates getting the “biggest contract ever.” Here's the far bigger question: Did that topic come up coincidentally, or deliberately?
