For a player who usually chooses his words carefully, Aaron Rodgers is having a fairly outspoken week.

First, the Green Bay quarterback disagreed with the team's offensive game plan in a narrow victory over Detroit. Then he was voted the Packers' new union representative and attended a fan event on behalf of the NFL Players Association, putting himself in the middle of what is shaping up as a tense standoff between players and owners over a new collective bargaining agreement.

Rodgers is passing on the chance to criticize the front office for failing to make a trade for running back Marshawn Lynch, saying the Packers can win with the players they already have.
