Rob Gronkowski shouts out at Aaron Rodgers: Retired star slams QB for not being clear on his NFL priorities – CBS Sports

It’s not too often that Rob Gronkowski calls out someone, but the former NFL tight end definitely took issue with a recent comment from Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

During an appearance on Tuesday On “The Pat McAfee Show,” Rodgers was talking about his NFL future β€” and whether he still has what it takes to play at the NFL level β€” when he casually mentioned that he thought he might win “MVP again,” if he would put it in the “right situation”.

Gronk meanwhile was asked about this comment a Wednesday interview on “Up and Adams” and let’s just say Gronk would love to see Rodgers get his NFL priorities right.

“I agree with everything he said except for a big part, and that’s the ‘MVP,'” Gronk said. “It’s just like, ‘I think I can win another Super Bowl,’ and then that would have been totally fine. Why are you thinking of MVP? Don’t you want Super Bowls? I think Super Bowls are five times bigger than an MVP award.”

Gronk is a four-time Super Bowl champion who once played with a three-time NFL MVP in Tom Brady, so he definitely knows a little bit about both subjects.

“We all know you’ve won the MVP a few times now, but everyone would know even more about how many more Super Bowls you’ve won as MVPs,” Gronk said of Rodgers. “So I’m just a little confused by the quote he just had. It was supposed to be Super Bowls. You should never think about the MVP when Super Bowls happen twice [as good].”

Rodgers has only had one Super Bowl win in his career, and that was in his third season as a starter in 2010. Since then, the Packers have made it to four NFC championships, but Rodgers has yet to return to the big game.

The Packers quarterback opened up about his future at McAfee because it’s unclear at the moment what will happen to him this offseason.

During the MVP portion of the conversation, Rodgers opened up about how people thought he washed up in 2019, just a year before he won back-to-back MVP awards. As some fans may once again think he’s done, Rodgers said that’s definitely not the case.

“Do I think I can still play? Of course. Can I play at a high level? Yes, at the highest level. I think I can win MVP again in the right situation,” Rodgers said. β€œIs that Green Bay or is that somewhere else? I’m not sure, but I don’t think you should rule out every opportunity.”

Apparently, if Gronk Rodgers had said what to say there, he would have preferred something closer to “I think I can play at MVP level and win a Super Bowl given the right situation.” Rodgers didn’t say that, however, and Gronk was definitely not a fan of the fact that Rodgers prioritized an individual award over a team effort.
