Aaron Rodgers sticks up for unvaxxed teammates, ‘it’s a personal decision’

It’s been several weeks since we’ve heard any controversial news about Aaron Rodgers and the Packers after a nightmarish start to the offseason. Not since his airing of grievances. Or since he snapped at a center for not delivering the ball.

Now back in practice and re-establishing chemistry with teammates, Rodgers is keeping his focus on the football field and staying out of extracurricular topics like vaccination status.

Rodgers spoke to the media on Thursday following practice.
