Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has spoken out against the proposed new NFL CBA, saying he is not a fan of the possible addition of an extra regular season game.

Rodgers, who serves as the Packers player representative, confirmed he was one of 14 players to vote 'no' when the reps voted early Wednesday morning. Seventeen players voted in favor of the new CBA; 14 voted against it while one abstained.

The two-time NFL MVP said he pushed for extra offseason rest time to offset the addition of a 17th regular season game, but did not get the concessions he was looking for.
