Bill Barnwell on Rodgers’ Vaccine Status, Chiefs Struggles and More

ESPN Daily

It’s been a head spinning week in the NFL. On Wednesday, reports surfaced that Packers QB Aaron Rodgers tested positive for covid, and will not play in Sunday’s marquee matchup vs. the Chiefs. Rodgers previously told the media and his team that he was “immunized,” and has undergone other treatments that did not include the vaccine. So QB Jordan Love will see his first NFL start against a Chiefs team that seems beleaguered by turnovers and bad defense. Elsewhere, Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. may be coming to the end of his career in Cleveland, after his father Odell Beckham Sr. posted a video on social media blaming QB Baker Mayfield for Beckham’s poor performance. And, the New Orleans Saints are dealing with two massive injuries to QB Jameis Winston and WR Michael Thomas. Bill Barnwell takes us through all of these NFL storylines and more at the halfway point of the season.

REShow: Saquon Barkley & Bill Barnwell - Hour 2 (07-08-21)

The Rich Eisen Show

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley and Rich discuss the timeline for him to get back on the field following his season-ending knee injury, his reaction to fellow Penn State Nittany Lion Carl Nassib announcing he’s gay, and why he went into business with ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter and Clippers star Kawhi Leonard. ESPN Senior NFL Writer Bill Barnwell tells Rich his obvious (Patrick Mahomes) and dark horse (Jameis Winston) candidates for NFL MVP, which teams would be tempted to trade for disgruntled Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, and why he’d happily hand over $50 to watch a pay-per-view event where Tom Brady revealed which QB he was talking about when the said “that MF’er!??” on LeBron James’ HBO show ‘The Shop.’    Rich wraps up the hour debating on whether or not it would make sense for the Jets to trade rookie QB Zach Wilson to Green Bay for Rodgers.
