Anthony Barr's hit that left Aaron Rodgers with a broken collarbone wasn't dirty based on NFL rules, but what Rodgers says Barr did after the play is the complete opposite. 

During a guest appearance on Conan Thursday night, Rodgers said Barr gave him the finger and the "suck it" sign. 

"I rolled out to my right, I threw the ball and I got tackled and kind of slammed on the ground," said Rodgers. "I looked over at him as I walked off the field – the cameras caught me saying something to him, but what they missed was him – finger, 'suck it' sign.'"

Rodgers was on Conan for a segment of "Clueless Gamer," which you can see the full video here. There's plenty of other little comments about his collarbone and Barr in this one.
