Packers QB Aaron Rodgers shows up for training camp
Aaron Rodgers reported for work on Tuesday morning sporting sunglasses and a man bun.
The quarterback’s casual look notwithstanding, this marked the first time that Rodgers was with the Green Bay Packers since his exit interview after the team’s 31-26 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game.
Rodgers’ private plane landed at the Green Bay airport late Monday night. He promptly jumped into a waiting car and sped off.
Rodgers, fresh off being selected the NFL’s Most Valuable Player for the third time in his career, skipped the Packers’ mandatory minicamp last month after expressing frustration with the team’s front office.
His presence on Tuesday allows Rodgers to avoid the $50,000 daily fine for sitting out camp-related events.
Rodgers, 37, has played with the Packers for his entire 16-year career. He has passed for 51,245 yards and 412 touchdowns, and he won a Super Bowl ring with the franchise at the end of the 2010 season.
