NFL: No issue with Aaron Rodgers’ ayahuasca use

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers won’t face discipline from the NFL over his revelation that he used ayahuasca.

Rodgers recently said on the “The Aubrey Marcus Podcast” that he drank the hallucinogenic beverage during a 2020 trip to Peru, and he emerged with “a deep and meaningful appreciation for life.”

However, because ayahuasca isn’t on the list of banned substances per the collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players’ union, Rodgers couldn’t get into trouble for using it, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Monday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Rodgers stated his belief that using ayahuasca helped him to his MVP season in 2020, when he posted league highs in completion rate (70.7 percent) and touchdown passes (48).

He came back to earn his second straight MVP award, and the fourth of his career, in 2021, when he threw for 4,115 yards, 37 touchdowns and four interceptions as the Packers went 13-4. However, the Packers were upset in their first playoff game, falling 13-10 to the visiting San Francisco 49ers in the divisional round.

Rodgers, 38, is a 10-time Pro Bowl performer who ranks 10th in NFL history in both passing yards (55,360) and completions (4,651) and fifth in touchdown passes (449).

He led Green Bay to a Super Bowl championship after the 2010 season, but his .524 postseason winning percentage (11-10) pales when compared to his .675 regular-season winning percentage (139-66-1).
