As for the most famous player on the Packers, he’s not going to judge or criticize his teammates who choose to remain unvaccinated.
Don’t worry they got me too. But I was wearing a mask when I was in close contact with fully vaxxed trainer who tested positive and still got sent home. So what’s the point of the mask anyways? Meanwhile I’m here still testing negative and can’t come back. Make it make sense. https://t.co/VGzoy0ljb4

“Yeah, I’ve been immunized. There’s guys on the team that haven’t been vaccinated. I think it’s a personal decision. I’m not going to judge those guys,” Rodgers told the media Thursday after practice, according to Packers Wire.

This is the correct stand for Rodgers and anyone else to take when it comes to dealing with your teammates. Unlike some in the media and Hollywood who just want to preach and lecture, it seems like Rodgers understands that his role doesn’t involve telling people what to do.
If players have problems, the NFL will deal with it. It’s not on Rodgers to get involved with the personal decisions of the guys he works with.
Believe it or not, it’s not anyone’s role outside of medical staff to get involved in the decisions of grown men.
That might be a hard pill for some people to swallow, but it’s 100% true.
Even though I hate the Packers, I have to give props to Rodgers for having a rational take on the situation.
