Aaron Rodgers and Nick Barnett exchanged a few barbs this week, but the quarterback is claiming it is water under the bridge now. Rodgers recently called Barnett and the two spoke directly.
“I initiated the conversation; we ironed things out,” Rodgers said, according to ESPN.com. “I didn't think there needed to be an apology on either side. I reminded him I was the one who went to the third floor and lobbied to have everyone in the team photo. I realize people are going to want to talk about this at the Super Bowl, but everything is cool."
Their little public rift began when Rodgers irked Barnett by subtly complaining about players on injured reserve not sticking around and being near the team.
Barnett, one of 16 Packer players on IR, responded via Twitter (he has since deleted his Twitter account), saying, "All I wanted to be is included as a teammate nothing more. Looks like it has backfired on me. I guess that was asking too much... Sorry if I offended anyone."
If he did, all is well is now (according to Rodgers).
