Even though Aaron Rodgers is the current frontrunner for the NFL’s Most Valuable Player award, Associated Press voter Hub Arkush has stated that he would not support the Packers quarterback in his campaign for a fourth MVP.
Arkush is one of 50 voters that will vote on who will get the NFL MVP award. While voters are not obliged to announce who they want to vote for, Arkush revealed why he will not vote for Rodgers.
Aaron Rodgers Is A Jerk
Arkush disclosed his opinions on Aaron Rodgers during a discussion on Chicago radio station WSCR-AM on Friday, stating he weighed his off-field character in addition to his on-field success this season when voting for MVP. He referred to Rodgers as a “jerk” and likened his season to that of Colts running back Jonathan Taylor, Rams receiver Cooper Kupp, and Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.
Aaron Rodgers has been in the headlines throughout the 2021 NFL season, not only for his summer holdout from the Packers and unclear future in Green Bay but also for misleading reporters earlier in the year when mentioning his immunization status. After contracting COVID, Aaron Rodgers retaliated against individuals who accused him of making false statements regarding the vaccination.
Aaron Rodgers has earned three MVP honors and is presently favored to win the award for the second time in a row, according to ESPN. A fourth MVP would make him only the second NFL player, after Peyton Manning, to win the award four times.
With their 37-10 victory against the Vikings on Sunday, the Packers claimed the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs and a first-round bye week. Following the victory, Rodgers told reporters that he intends to start the Packers’ last regular-season game. On Sunday, the Packers will travel to Detroit to face the Lions.
