In the recent 2017-18 NFL season, the Packers did something that caused other teams to get upset. Aaron Rodgers had sustained some sort of an injury, which led to the Packers placing him on their injured reserve roster, where he could be retained without consequence of another team possibly signing him. The problem with this is that they’re only permitted to do so if a player is projected to be out beyond six weeks – and it didn’t seem like Rodgers’ injury was that serious. With a player like Rodgers’ stature, many teams came out of the woodworks and questioned if Green Bay’s front office was doing something illegal – but no decision was made to veto it.
