Aaron Rogers says he turned to booze to help him survive the shock of the shocking first round of selection in the first round of Green Bay … pouring “four fingers”; of tequila after Jordanian love selection!
Oh, Rogers also says he sees the letter on the wall – acknowledging that it is unlikely that he will resign as a packer.
The NFL star made the revelation of Fr. Kyle Brandt’s “10 Questions” podcast … saying that once Green Bay chose Utah as the state of Utah with the 26th overall choice – he turned to the liquor office.
“I love scotch, but lately I’ve been drinking a little tequila,” Rogers said. “And as soon as I got that text, I went to the pantry, poured myself four fingers, and I knew it was going to be one of those nights.”
Rogers says he hoped Green Bay would prepare a higher version of the WR with its first round – targeting LSU Justin Jefferson, Arizona Brandon Ayuk and Clemson Those Higgins
So when the team went instead of KB, Aaron admits that “was not exalted. “
In fact, 36-year-old Rogers says he believes the peak project likely means he won’t end his NFL career in Green Bay.
“Just look at the facts,” Rogers said of his future with Green Bay. “They traded. They made it up. I’d say he likes it. They want to play it.”
As for the comparison, when Rogers was surprisingly picked up to the end Brett FavreCareer in the 1st round, and now … A-Roge says that these are two completely different scenarios.
Rogers says Favre hinted at retirement years before the Packers took Rogers … while Aaron has repeatedly stated that he wants to play in his 40s.
Rogers also said he joined the packers during the 2005 NFL project … while he notes that the Packers traded up from №30 to №26 overall to choose love.
Despite this, Rogers says he still plans to be cordial to the newcomer and help KB throughout the process. He even encouraged Love to talk things the day after the project.
“I understand it’s a business,” Rogers said. “I understand the nature of business. I’m not advocating here to advocate for my place in any way, it won’t happen.”
“But I understand how business works.”
