Eagles fans are counting their blessings that they don’t have to put with shit like this:

Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers and edge rusher Haason Reddick are skipping the team’s mandatory two-day minicamp, the team announced Tuesday.

Both absences are unexcused, meaning both players are subject to fines.

Reddick’s no-show, not entirely unexpected, escalates a contract dispute between the Jets and their biggest offseason addition. Rodgers took the required physical and participated in the team’s media day, both on Monday, before leaving town.

“Aaron and I spoke before OTAs started,” coach Robert Saleh said. “He’s very good in communication. He’s been here the entire time. It’s [unexcused], but he had an event that was very important to him, which he communicated.”

Rodgers has been a regular at voluntary workouts for the past two offseasons, preaching the importance of building team chemistry and eliminating distractions — which makes his absence even more conspicuous. The four-time MVP, nine months removed from Achilles surgery, had been a full participant in practice during three weeks of OTA practices.
