Shailene Woodley is throwing her assist behind Aaron Rodgers, and never simply in his private life.
The 29-year-old Divergent actress clarified the place she stands amid her 37-year-old fiancé’s ongoing friction with the NFL’s Green Bay Packers by retweeting a fiery video from ESPN pundit Stephen A. Smith on Tuesday, July 20. In the footage, Stephen blasts any fellow soccer specialists who criticized Aaron for wanting to go away from the Packers resulting from feeling disrespected by the group that drafted him in 2004. “It’s not about football—it’s not just about the money, and it certainly isn’t about football,” Stephen mentioned in the video. “This is about the way that the Green Bay Packers have treated their star player. They have disregarded him, they have dismissed him, they have minimized him, they’ve disrespected him. And he said, ‘Bump, y’all, enough’s enough.'”
Stephen’s vitriolic feedback have been a response to a current ESPN report stating, per sources, that the reigning NFL MVP, who introduced his engagement to Shailene in February, had turned down a proposal from the Packers throughout this offseason that might have prolonged his contract and made him the highest-paid participant in the complete league.
