Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Pokes Fun At 'Quiet Offseason'

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has not lost his sense of humor this offseason, even though he is embroiled in an open dispute with his team and has publicly asked for a trade.

Rodgers was doing his best stand-up Tuesday during a promotional video in advance of the July 6th golf match featuring Rodgers and PGA Tour star Bryson DeChambeau against Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson.

Rodgers was being interviewed by show host Brian Anderson, who did a perfect job setting up Rodgers to hit it out of the park:

"You've really kept a low profile this offseason, I've hardly seen your name at all and you haven't hosted any TV shows or been involved in any kind of controversy or anything," Anderson said.

"It's been a nice, peaceful offseason for you, it sounds like."

Rodgers was perfect in his comeback.

"It's been one of those quiet offseasons you dream about, where you can kind of just go through your process on your own, quietly," Rodgers said.

"And that's all you can ask for as an older player in the league and someone who's been around for a long time and just enjoys that time to yourself, just relax, to not be bothered, to not have any obligations or anything going on.

"I think that's what this offseason has been about. It's been about really enjoying my time and spending it where I want to spend it, not feeling like I have to go anywhere but still be an NFL player at the same time. It's been great."

Rodgers is playing the Pack and media like a drum, despite his issues with the team.

Not only did he take a shot at the team and the offseason, he even showed up for the question wearing a shirt that read "I'm Offended."
