One of the bigger stories of Round 1 of the NFL Draft Thursday was the Packers trading up to select quarterback Jordan Love at No. 26.

Obviously, this directly impacts Aaron Rodgers, who is 36 years old.

Appearing on Dale & Keefe Friday, NBC Sports' Peter King was asked for what he thinks Rodgers' feelings are and he didn't mince words.

“I’ll tell you what he thinks, he’s pissed off," he said. "Wouldn’t you be? You realize that when the Green Bay Packers have been sitting there for the last four drafts and Aaron Rodgers said, ‘Give me a weapon, give me a weapon. Get me some receivers’ and the Packers have never, unless you consider Ty Montgomery, who was switched to running back after being a college receiver at Stanford, they have not picked a wide receiver in the top 100 picks in the last four drafts when they have had a significant need in the last two years. Now, they have pick 62 tonight and they will pick a receiver, I would guess.

"But, I don’t know, if I am Aaron Rodgers and I am on record, he told me this, he said, ‘I will play until I am 40 as long as I still have my legs.’ Well, he looks to be in great shape. He always keeps himself in great shape in the offseason. That would mean he wants to play another four seasons, at least. If that is the case, he probably is going to play is last year, two or three somewhere else because it is clear now that Jordan Love is the quarterback of the future in Green Bay.”

Love, who played his college ball at Utah State, was the fourth quarterback selected overall in the draft.
