Aaron Rodgers on "quiet offseason" + Jamal Adams contract dispute? | 6/16 #1

Aaron Rodgers: Ahead of his golf match with Tom Brady, the Packers QB talked about his "quiet offseason." Is this a sign that he's preparing to come back to Green Bay?

Derek Carr: The Raiders QB says "I would probably quit football if I had to play anywhere else." But is his team as committed to him?

Ben Roethlisberger: New Steelers OC Matt Canada speaks about how he'll handle his veteran QB and what Pittsburgh is going to do about their run game.

Danielle Hunter: The Vikings pass rusher is happier now that the team restructured his deal.

Sam Darnold: He came in at #19 in the Simms Top 40 QB Countdown, but are we giving him too much of a pass for the Jets dysfunction?

Browns: Travis Kelce called Cleveland "definitely a contender." How close are the Browns to catching the Chiefs?

00:27:26

Bruce Arians: He doesn't expect Tom Brady to practice at the Bucs upcoming minicamp, but Kyle Trask is already reminding him of Andrew Luck.
