Shailene Woodley throws their support behind Aaron Rodgers, and not just in his private life.
The 29-year-old Divergent actress made it clear where she stands amid her 37-year-old fiancée’s continued friction with the NFL’s Green Bay Packers by retweeted a fiery video from ESPN expert Stephen A. Smith on Tuesday July 20th. In the footage, Stephen beats up all the other football experts who criticized Aaron for wanting to leave the Packers because he didn’t feel respected by the organization that convened him in 2004.
“It’s not about football – it’s not just about money, and it’s certainly not about football,” Stephen said in the video. “This is how the Green Bay Packers treated their star player. They disregarded him, they fired him, they belittled him, they disrespected him. And he said, ‘Bump, all of you, enough’ enough. ‘”
Stephen’s violent comments came in response to a recent ESPN report that sources said the reigning NFL MVP, who announced his engagement to Shailene in February, had turned down an offer from the Packers that off-season to extend his contract he is the highest paid player in the entire league.
