McAfee roasts Saleh on Rodgers’ absence

Pat McAfee and his crew poked fun at New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh for addressing Aaron Rodgers’ inexcusable absence from practice and foreshadowing upcoming fines.

During a press conference on Tuesday, Saleh noted the absences of Rodgers and Haason Reddick. He then stated that the quarterback and linebacker are subject to fines per the NFL collective bargaining agreement.

After playing a clip from the presser, McAfee laughed at the idea of Saleh fining Rodgers.

‘Fascinating. In Aaron’s 20th year, he did not miss a single OTA,’ McAfee said, laughing. ‘So now he opens up the fines. Are they gonna fine Aaron Rodgers?’

While Saleh noted that Rodgers has been good at communicating and present at the camp, he revealed that his absence was due to an event ‘that was important to him.’

McAfee and his crew continued to joke about how Saleh should have left Rodgers’ reason for missing practice out of the presser without elaborating on the details.

‘I just don’t know. I have not talked to any sources close to the situation with the quarterback of the Jets,’ McAfee said.

‘What’s the life event? Because obviously Saleh heard it and was like, ‘Nah I don’t think so.’

Later in the program, Rodgers’ friend AJ Hawk joined and said: ‘I have no idea where he could be. The opportunities are endless.’

‘He could be anywhere on the planet right now. We don’t know what that could be,’ Hawk added. ‘Google ‘cool things happening over the next three days.’ He might be there. I have no clue where he is either.’

Hawk also noted how Saleh confirmed that Rodgers communicated his upcoming absence beforehand.

‘Saleh’s had some time to think about how he may handle it when he had to speak to the media when he knew Rodgers was not going to be there,’ Hawk said.

‘He could’ve worded it a little better and said, ‘We have great communication, we’re ready to go.’ How he kind of contrasted Reddick and Aaron’s absence, that’s what made it kind of weird.’
