Aaron Rodgers will face fines from the Jets for skipping minicamp without excuse

Aaron Rodgers was noticeably absent on the first day of the Jets’ mandatory minicamp, causing confusion and speculation among fans. The Jets considered Rodgers’ absence unexcused and will be fining him for not showing up, according to a source familiar with the situation.

The CBA specifically mentions “unexcused” absences, suggesting that absences can be excused. However, it also states that discipline must be imposed uniformly on all players for the same offense. If the Jets had excused Rodgers, it could have set a precedent that would apply to other players as well.

The situation could have been handled differently if Rodgers’ absence was expected for weeks. The Jets could have disclosed or leaked that information beforehand, lessening the surprise of his sudden absence on Tuesday. Despite this, the Jets did not excuse Rodgers’ absence and will be imposing a fine. It will be interesting to hear Rodgers’ response, whether in a press conference or on a podcast, where he feels more comfortable speaking openly.
