Aaron Rodgers apologizes to ‘girlfriend’ after previous Covid-19 commentary controversy

Last November, Rodgers missed an NFL showdown due to Covid-19 protocols. Green Bay Packers quarterback later confirmed he was unvaccinated and had received advice from podcast host Joe Rogan on how to deal with a coronavirus infection.
He said then the media was on a “witch hunt” to find out which players had been vaccinated and accused journalists of saying he was “immunized” back in August. Rodgers said that if a journalist had asked a follow-up question, he would have explained that he “is not an anti-wax flat earther”, but that he is a “critical thinker”, as well as saying that he “would never be a divisive, polarizing figure.”
Appears at his usual castle on “Pat McAfee Show” on Tuesday, Rodgers apologized to those caught by the reaction to his comments.

“One thing that I’m sorry and absolutely apologetic for is that I did not realize, in the midst of the Covid talks, how much my situation affected my loved ones and my people,” he said. “The people who support me and love me and check me out and take care of me.

“I did not realize what kind of grenade shrapnel was somehow ripped off, by what I felt were the bullets coming at me because I was too locked around me and defending myself and trying to get a message out . “

Rodgers added: “So many people stepped up to the plate and sent me good messages of support and love. But I think I realized I was out of this now and had conversations with some of these people and that I understood the whole seriousness of Situation I had come across and decided to talk about several times had an effect on many people.

“To those people, I’m just saying, I’m sorry. I never intended to get you in the middle of it, but you got into it by proxy because of your relationship with me.”

Rodgers is coming off an excellent season as a quarterback. Earlier in February, the 38-year-old was named The NFL’s most valuable player for the second year in a row – the fourth time he won the award in his career.

However, the season ended in disappointment for Rodgers and Packers after being dumped out of the playoffs by the San Francisco 49ers in a shocking defeat.

The overwhelming way to lose the playoffs and the rumors of dissatisfaction from Rodgers from last free season have led to questions about his long-term future at Green Bay.

And an Instagram post from Monday titled #MondayNightGratitude only put fuel on these flames as he thanked his teammates, coaches, other quarterbacks on the team, as well as his former fiance Shailene Woodley.

But when he spoke to former Indianapolis Colts player McAfee, Rodgers said he has not yet made a decision about his future.

“There will be no news today, no decision about my future,” he said, going on to say that his future is not everything he thinks about.

“The offseason season begins in a way when your season ends on paper, but it really does begin when the Super Bowl is over.

“And you start thinking about next season, and for me, my future. And then there have certainly been some contemplative days.”
