Anthony Barr: '(Aaron Rodgers) got y'all fooled man'

Anthony Barr: '(Aaron Rodgers) got y'all fooled man'”

During an appearances on the Conan O'Brien Show, the Green Bay Packers' quarterback claimed that Barr made profane gestures at him after a hit that broke Rodgers' collarbone and ended his season. The Vikings linebacker sent out a tweet on Saturday that described his version of events, and according to him, all the trash talk was initiated by Rodgers.

While appearing on the "Clueless Gamer" segment of "Conan" on Thursday (video below), Rodgers claimed Barr directed a pair of obscene gestures at him following the hit. He also told A-Rod to get over it, because it's been nearly two weeks since his collarbone injury and he's still talking about it. In his statement released on Twitter, he says Rodgers was shouting profanities at him, and that's what caused him to respond as he did. I look over and it's y'all mans calling me all kinds of names.as he's walking off the field. So naturally I responded. It was only then, Barr says, that he reacted to Rodgers.

"I could go on a talk show every weekend and complain about the "disrespectful" things players say or do", Barr wrote.

Barr is clearly sick of talking about the hit. "If you say something like that you're gonna get a response from me".

TV cameras only showed Rodgers' response, obviously without sound of the exchange, so it seems destined to be a case of matching one account of the story against another.

Rodgers is on injured reserve.

The Vikings play at Green Bay on December 23.
