(NEW YORK) — New Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings might have won fans over with his recent critical comments about Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but his coach would like him to focus on his new team not his old team.
“We’re the Vikings and we want to talk about us, what we’re trying to get done,” coach Leslie Frazier said, according to the Pioneer Press. “That’s where our focus has to be. There’s so much work to be done, and we don’t want to be looking at what’s happening with other teams, other teams’ players. We’ve got to focus on us. He’s good with that.”
Jennings recently took some shots at Rodgers, questioning his leadership and attitude. Jennings had been with the Packers since 2006 and was Rodgers’ teammate for seven seasons.
Meanwhile, Rodgers isn’t too worried about his former wide receiver’s comments. “To me, I’m concerned with the opinions of the guys in this locker room and guys we have here,” he said.
Jennings caught 38 touchdowns since Rodgers became a full-time starter in 2008. During the offseason, he signed with the Vikings.
