Aaron Rodgers admitted he was surprised when Robert F. Kennedy Jr. introduced the idea of ​​having the New York Jets quarterback as his vice presidential candidate in the upcoming election.

In March, the 40-year-old was on a shortlist of potential candidates to run alongside Kennedy in his independent presidential campaign.

In a recent interview with Tucker Carlson, the four-time NFL MVP shared his reaction when Kennedy made the pitch.

“My thing is (Donald Trump) had four years to do it and didn’t drain the swamp,” Rodgers said (from 29:45). “And if he was just scared because of what he learned while he was there, I think that’s very plausible.”

“But that’s why I was interested when Bobby came to me and said, ‘Would you consider being my vice presidential candidate?’ And I said, ‘Are you serious? I’m a f***ing football player,'” he continued. “But I love this country and I would like to help bring it back to what it was.”

Rodgers had expressed his support for Kennedy. His support went so far as to use his platform on ESPN’s Pat McAfee Show to express interest in joining Kennedy for a live debate on the COVID-19 vaccine.

While Kennedy ultimately chose Nicole Shanahan as his running mate, Rodgers continued to show his support.

Although he was initially shocked to be offered the opportunity, Rodgers admitted to considering the position.

“Oh yeah, I thought about it,” Rodgers said. “I really thought about it because I love Bobby and I just wanted to hear what he had to say about it.”

The Super Bowl XLV MVP joined the Jets in 2023 after 18 seasons with the Green Bay Packers. Unfortunately, his season ended during his first quarter in a Jets uniform as he suffered a torn Achilles against the Buffalo Bills.

Despite attempting to make a monumental comeback before the New Year, Rodgers’ comeback hopes faded along with New York’s playoff chances. The Jets finished their season with a 7-10 record, placing third in the AFC East.
