When probed by Detroit reporters on an answer he gave on "60 Minutes" regarding bounty scandals in the NFL, Rodgers responded:
"I wouldn’t put a whole lot of weight into that story. It was cut for their purposes, their agenda, and most of the answers were either just portions of a bigger answer or probably not even for the question that was asked. So, I’m not even going to touch that one."
"60 Minutes" responded with a statement and the full, unedited copy of that portion of Rodgers' interview.
The question came on the heels of the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, which levied some of the harshest penalties in NFL history.
Rodgers has been one of the NFL's best quarterbacks since taking over the starting role in Green Bay in 2008. He was the Super Bowl MVP in 2010 and the league MVP in 2011.
This season, Rodgers has completed 67 percent of his passes for 2,383 yards. He has a league-leading 25 touchdown passes and just five interceptions.
As the league MVP last season, Rodgers led the Packers to a 14-1 regular-season record. The first-round draft pick in 2005 threw for 45 touchdowns and 4,643 yards. He also had a 122.5 quarterback rating, which was also the best mark in the NFL.
After starting the season 2-3, Rodgers and the Packers have turned the season around and are now 6-3 overall. Green Bay has won four in a row.
The Packers travel to play Detroit (4-5) on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
