Alex Smith thinks Green Bay’s treatment of Aaron Rodgers has been terrible.

The former Washington and Kansas City quarterback spoke Wednesday with Colin Cowherd about the issue that’s consuming the NFL, and he thinks the fault lies with Green Bay. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Smith referred to the organization’s conduct with Rodgers as “inexcusable.” You can listen to him break it down below.

I’m not sure I agree at all with Smith on this one. I’m not sure I agree at all. Obviously, nobody in this situation is completely clean, but the Packers don’t need Aaron Rodgers‘ permission to do anything.

If they want to go out and draft Jordan Love, then they can do it. Now, how the situation gets handled is a different debate.

However, Aaron Rodgers is an employee at the end of the day. It’s that simple. The Packers are responsible for an entire franchise.

All Aaron Rodgers is ultimately responsible for is himself and his job. Yet, he seems to think he should be pulling the strings.

I’m not saying he doesn’t deserve to have a voice, but he’s not the GM.

Let’s not just assume the Packers are the only part at fault here because that’s simply not the case.
