Multiple Teams Want The Packers To Have To Release Aaron Rodgers For Violating The IR Rules

When the Green Bay Packers placed Aaron Rodgers on IR for the second time this season they violated the injured reserve rules.

According to Adam Schefter, multiple teams have complained and want the Packers to have to release Rodgers, via ESPN:

Multiple teams complained to the NFL last week that the Packers violated the rules regarding players who are eligible to be placed on injured reserve -- and that Green Bay should have to release quarterback Aaron Rodgers as a result, league sources told ESPN.

NFL rules stipulate that a player needs to have suffered a new injury that would sideline him at least six weeks to be placed on injured reserve. If that is not the case, the team is obligated to release the player once he is healthy.

Rodgers was activated off injured reserve and played last Sunday against the Carolina Panthers but came out of the game because he was "sore," according to Packers coach Mike McCarthy.

Sounds to me like those bums in Green Bay violated the rules and should be forced to release Rodgers immediately.
