Michael Cohen confirms the news and adds that this was interim HC Joe Philbin’s decision and he had the support of president Mark Murphy and GM Brian Gutekunst.
Earlier in the day, Moss posted a tweet saying that everyone needs to be held accountable including QB Aaron Rodgers.
Ponder this… what Championship teams have are great leadership! Period! It’s not the offensive guru trend, it’s not the safe trend. Find somebody that is going to hold #12 and everybody in this building to a #LombardiStandard! Period! #losingsucks!
