Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers came out and said he understands that some of his comments about COVID infuriated plenty of people, but he didn’t mean to offend folks.
People have been counting down the minutes to hear from Aaron Rodgers again, as the Green Bay Packers quarterback has been getting bashed left and right after he tested positive for COVID-19 last week. On Tuesday, Rodgers once again appeared on the The Pat McAfee Show to discuss things.
In his opening comments, Rodgers didn’t waste any time in making it clear that he knows some of his comments rubbed people the wrong way, but that was never his intention.

“I made some comments that people might have felt were misleading,” Rodgers said Tuesday on The Pat McAfee Show. “To anybody who felt misled by those comments, I take full responsibility.”
Clearly Rodgers saw all of the backlash from his comments on last week’s show with McAfee, which included Stephen A. Smith calling him a ‘national embarrassment’ for how things unfolded. Rodgers didn’t address any of the hate sent his way, but he did say that he respects people having the right to voice their opinions.
On top of that, Rodgers also said that he’s feeling healthy and that he feels like he’s come out ‘on the other side of things’ in terms of his COVID diagnosis. Now, he’s hoping to get back on the field this weekend with the Packers to take on the Seattle Seahawks.
