just said the Packers releasing Jake Kumerow almost immediately after Aaron Rodgers praised him was described as a "death knell" in the relationship.
From NFL Now: Summing up the #Packers situation with QB Aaron Rodgers, who also wanted more input in personnel decisions... and how the Jake Kumerow release (!!) played into it.
Aaron Rodgers the morning after the Packers released Jake Kumerow
Apparently the Last Straw for Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay Was When the Packers Released Legendary WR Jake Kumerow https://t.co/G6WF6xMvqE
From Ian: "Rodgers wanted to be more involved in personnel decisions... one thing that drove Rodgers nuts was when the organization released Jake Kumerow just a day after he praised him publicly. Described as a little bit of a death kneel in the relationship."
If I were GM of the Broncos I would so just trade for Jake Kumerow today just to mess with people.
Brett Favre was pissed because Ted wouldn't trade for Randy Moss, one of the best to ever to do it.
Aaron Rodgers is pissed because Gutey cut Jake Kumerow, the undisputed best to ever do it....in the 4th quarter of the fourth preseason games.
It all makes so much sense.
It's the 2022 NFL Draft.
The Packers and Rodgers figured everything out. They just won the Super Bowl, Jake Kumerow lead the league in TDs. Aaron Rodgers is now co-GM. He also hosts Jeopardy! full time. He hasn't cut his hair since the '19 season.
Life is good. https://t.co/IMvW0WKAkW
I know today has been about Jake Kumerow, but never forget that Gutekunst was the one who released Jordy Nelson...
Ian Rapoport just said the #Packers releasing Jake Kumerow was something that really bothered QB Aaron Rodgers.
The fact that “Jake Kumerow” is being brought up should tell you everything you need to know about this narrative
It’s starting to unravel.
Maybe Rodgers could have been MVP and led the NFL's No. 1 scoring offense last year if he had Kumerow. Ya never know...
Kumerow was amazing on the Bills practice squad last year. https://t.co/fwNeDnsbXq
Kumerow The Great, Wreaker Of Havoc, Destroyer of Empires, Shifter of Tides, Kingmaker of Jeopardy, First Of His Name https://t.co/yb9bgAU4R8
The release of Jake Kumerow this past September was reportedly seen as a 'death knell' in the relationship between Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. 👀 https://t.co/8zOqGCbklk
This is where we are at?
This is really where we are at... having to explain why the Packers didn't want to keep an avg at best, maxed out, non-ST player.... ?
I mean, I really enjoyed having Kumerow on the roster too... but get out of here. https://t.co/VETtrTtRVr
NFL Network pushing the Kumerow narrative AND the fact that LaFleur has ZERO input with Gutey or roster decisions......not buying any of it
Jake Kumerow is trending today.
Jake Kumerow when he sees he is trending today.
BREAKING NEWS: Aaron Rodgers was also upset when they took the chicken tacos off the cafeteria menu. Nobody discussed this and this was something he ate three or four times every season.. almost as often as he threw the ball to Kumerow...
Naw. 12 will leave
We sign kumerow again
Give him the number 12
Put him at QB
Win 3 superbowls
Retire Kumerow's 12
This isnt all about Kumerow you clowns. This is about the continous disrespect Rodgers has felt from the top.
Sad part is this could of all ben avoided with some better communication to your HOF QB. https://t.co/sOdcBoMD8g
Packers releasing Kumerow was the "death knell" for Aaron Rodgers with the Packers, per Mr. Rapoport. #Seahawks must grab this kid Kumerow now for his greatness! (Quickly looking up who the heck Jake Kumerow is...) https://t.co/VRCvBWGD1q
Frustrating cause they were right in Sitton, Lang, Bulaga, Jordy, and Kumerow. There haven’t been that many missteps and they’re contenders quickly after the last McCarthy years.
This is what I don’t get, all of the moves in question have worked in the Packers favor. Matthews and Nelson were over the hill… Kumerow is barely on a roster. Cobb is the only somewhat arguable one.
I know what can solve the Aaron Rodgers problem, just sign Jake Kumerow
feel like someone should send Kumerow an edible arrangement or something. poor guy
