Packers star Aaron Rodgers plunged into ‘wake culture’, claiming he’s being treated as a ‘bad guy’ for his stance on Covid-19.
Back in August last year, Rodgers admitted he had deliberately tricked the media 12 months earlier by telling them he was “immunized” against Covid because he thought he would no longer be asked about it.
In November 2021, he tested positive for coronavirus and was subsequently required to quarantine for 10 days — the minimum time an unvaccinated player must be quarantined under NFL rules — causing a stir.

Rodgers claimed he’s being painted as a ‘bad guy’ because of his stance on Covid
And Rodgers, who appears again on the Pat McAfee Showbelieves his continued stance on Covid has led to him being portrayed as a “bad guy” by his “woke” critics.
“There are heroes and villains in sport and in entertainment and I think because of my stance on Covid and maybe some other things I was cast as a villain. Especially in the last few years,” Rodgers said.
“And that’s how a lot of things I say are often interpreted.”
Rodgers wasn’t done there.
“This waking culture wants to be insulted by everything,” he added.
“You just go online and you find something you don’t agree with. ‘I’m offended! How can you say that?’ I don’t care. I don’t care who it came from or who said it.’
The four-time NFL MVP has repeatedly said he doesn’t care what people think of him and is never “offended” by criticism.
Rodgers has never been afraid to speak his mind, and he has repeatedly lashed out at the NFL’s health and safety protocols for unvaccinated players, which he likened to a “two-tier system” in late 2021.
Rodgers currently has a “real possibility” of being traded this offseason if he plays again
These remarks also came on The Pat McAfee Show.
At one time he also promoted the debunked treatment of ivermectin for Covid.
Rodgers is getting a lot of attention right now after the Green Bay Packers missed the playoffs after an 8-9 season.
According to Rodgers, his three-year deal, which is reportedly worth more than $150 million, has two years left ESPN’s NFL Insider Adam Scheter, a ‘real possibility’ to be exchanged away this off-season.
However, his contract makes that prospect a huge and expensive task.

Aside from the mentioned $30+ million cap for the upcoming NFL season, there are options to extend Rodgers’ contract for 2025 and 2026 that include caps of $59.302 million and $53.452 million, respectively, if he stays in Green Bay.
If a team traded for Rodgers before signing, or options were revised in his deal, the team trading for him would be capped at $32.5 million in 2024, $51.10 million in 2025 and take over $45.53 million in 2026.
‘Any other ideas about it [a] Trade and so on, that’s all guesswork until I decide what I want to do for myself,” he said.
“I hope there is some gratitude on both sides when that happens. But honestly, that doesn’t open the door to guesswork on my part. And I’m not saying that cryptically. I have to figure out what I want to do and then we’ll see where all the parties are and what happens after that.”
