In a recent twist, Randall Cobb, the wide receiver for the New York Jets, has found himself facing a fine due to his hit on Bobby McCain, a defensive back from the New York Giants, during their final preseason game this past weekend.
The hit led to Cobb being fined $13,889 for what ESPN reported as an illegal blindside block. Unfortunately, the impact of the hit left McCain with a concussion. Interestingly, this incident seemed to ignite a verbal clash between Jihad Ward, a linebacker for the Giants, and Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback.

A peek into this exchange was captured on “Hard Knocks,” where viewers witnessed Ward’s confrontation with Rodgers after a particular play. Following a pass, Ward pushed Rodgers and attempted to engage in a heated exchange. In response, Rodgers cleverly quipped that he wasn’t familiar with Ward, the linebacker.
Expressing his thoughts, Ward revealed on Wednesday that Rodgers and his teammates seemed to find humor in the aftermath of Cobb’s hit. He also expressed discontent with the way his portrayal of “Hard Knocks” unfolded. Ward remarked, “Ultimately, it seems to revolve around Aaron Rodgers. The team signs him, and things unfold as they do. They’re bound to spotlight his side of the story, making me seem less significant. But I’m not inclined to accept that narrative.”
Offering his perspective on Thursday, Rodgers countered Ward’s claims, asserting that Ward was fabricating the entire notion. He responded, “He believed we were laughing at his teammate? That scenario never occurred, and I believe he’s simply conjuring things up. It doesn’t concern me.”
