If Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is telling people close to him that he plans to play for the Packers this season, that’s news to Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari.

Bakhtiari quote tweeted Ian Rapoport’s tweet saying that Rodgers has indicated to people close to him that he plans to play for the Packers this season, and Bakhtiari added his own message indicating he’s heard no such thing.

“Wow. Guess we aren’t ‘close people’ @AaronRodgers12,” Bakhtiari wrote.

Bakhtiari has previously tweeted that Rodgers is his best friend, so it would seem likely that if Rodgers were letting people know his plans, Bakhtiari would be among the first to find out.

It’s unclear who Rodgers told that he plans to play, but Bakhtiari will apparently not know Rodgers’ status until the Packers report to training camp tomorrow.

UPDATE 2:25 p.m. ET: Bakhtiari responded to this post with, “Chill. I’m not disputing the report. Moreover, I’m disheartened that I’m not considered ‘close people’ to Aaron. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers during this time. I will persevere.”

  1. Rapoport is just fishing, and Bakhtiari bit. Reporters should face some sort of consequence for doing this type of stuff.

  2. If Rodgers is Bahtiari’s best friend, it would seem like a non-best-friend move to bail on your BFF the year after he signs his mega deal to stay with the Packers for the next 4 years.

  3. ……another good example of Rodgers, and the Packers, effectively keeping their mouths shut and controlling their respective messages. Was it Rodgers that said he’s telling close friends? Nope, it was not.

  4. He is joking. Aaron and Bakh constantly bust each others balls. As close friends do.

  5. Did you know that Bakhtiari went to Junípero Serra High School in San Mateo, CA? Same school as Tom Brady.

    Pretty incredible that 2 of the best NFL players at their positions came from the same school.

  6. Sometimes I think Rodgers won’t stop until he’s burned every bridge in America.

  7. This just in, Rodgers might or might not report when camp starts! This is the same thing we’ve been hearing since draft day, they’re just recycling old news to make it new news. There won’t be any new news until he says it himself.

  8. His Not reporting tomorrow would be a good shocker to the GB Front Office. Then show up the next day to make his point.

  9. Tomorrow’s Headline:
    Bakhtiari & Aaron Rodgers have not spoken to each other in three days!!!!
