Green Bay QB on Trump's 'locker room' comments: Haven't heard that 'in locker rooms I've been in'

In a conference call with members of the Dallas sports media Thursday morning, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn't shy away from a question about Donald Trump's so-called "locker room" comments published last week.

"I haven't heard that kind of conversation in locker rooms I've been in, Rodgers said, according to Dallas Morning News reporter Jon Machota . "...[That] wouldn't be very well received."

The Washington Post published the comments last Friday , in which Donald Trump can be heard boasting about unwanted sexual advances he has made on women due to his wealth and fame. A recent Marquette University Law School poll showed the story has hurt Trump in the polls , at least in Wisconsin.

Many athletes have been asked about the tape since its publication. Fellow NFL star and friend of Rodgers, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, handled the same question in a different manner. He immediately walked out of a press conference Wednesday when asked how he would respond if his children heard the comments.

"Thank you, guys," Brady said in response, before exiting.

The Packers take on the Dallas Cowboys at 3:25 p.m. Sunday.
