Good thing Rodgers is okay.
Aaron Rodgers is a proud member of the Green Bay Packers so it only makes sense that he would also be a fan of the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks are currently in their first-round matchup against the Detroit Pistons and so far the Bucks have been dominant. They are now up 2-0 in the series after a 120-99 win last night. Rodgers was in attendance for the game and as you can tell by the image above, he was almost taken out by Bucks shooting guard Pat Connaughton. Luckily, Rodgers put his hand out and escaped any danger.
The Packers can’t afford to lose their star quarterback as his contract is worth $134 million in total. The quarterback has also come under fire the last few weeks because of a report that claimed he isn’t a good teammate. Rodgers ended up replying to the article where he completely trashed the writer and the story’s contents.
“This was a smear attack by a writer looking to advance his career talking with mostly irrelevant, bitter players who all have an agenda whether they’re advancing their own careers or just trying to stir old stuff up,” Rodgers said. “If it’s not an article about me, do you ever hear their names anywhere else? … You talk about me being sensitive and petty, at what point do you move on or stop telling the same stories?”
Rodgers will have a chance to lead the Packers to the playoffs this year after missing the postseason two straight years.
