Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers addressed rumors he’s planning to boycott the Super Bowl with a hilarious tweet.

Aaron Rodgers thinks the latest rumor about him skipping a Super Bowl appearance in protest of NFL COVID protocols is as dumb as it is absurd.

The Packers quarterbacks took to Twitter to address the idea by making fun of it at every level.

He mocked the idea that he told backup quarterback Jordan Love, who he tagged, to be ready then unleashed a set of hashtags to get across just how crazy the story is.

Aaron Rodgers unloaded on a report of him skipping the Super Bowl

He went on to joke with Packers quarterback Kurt Benkert about the source of the story.

Rodgers could have simply denied the story but he decided to ether it instead. And who could blame him for that? The story sounded dubious from the start.

Why would Rodgers deny himself the chance to win another Super Bowl, more than a decade from when he won his first? He might disagree with COVID protocols but that’s a tactic well beyond the scope of believability.

Rodgers’ response says it all with no room for interpretation.

Before Green Bay players can even begin to think about how they might handle Super Bowl week, they have to get their first. Rodgers and company locked up the No. 1 seed in the NFC last week and they’ll close out the regular season against the Lions on Sunday.

The next task will be to make it through the playoffs unscathed. The Packers have made it to the NFC Championship Game four times since they won it all in 2010 but they’ve fallen each time, including the last two seasons.
