Aaron Rodgers remains a member of the Green Bay Packers and has been patiently awaiting a trade that should soon send him to the New York Jets. In the meantime, he’s been relaxing and even playing catch with Allen Lazard, his teammate for five seasons with the Pack. By the way? Lazard is a Jet now, too.

Oh, and #12 has also been weighing in on politics. At the highest scale, no less.

And many believe Rodgers appears to have publicly endorsed Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for president, at least according to a recent Instagram post albeit Rodgers does not explicitly endorse him. RFK Jr. will run in opposition to incumbent President Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination in 2024. The candidate is a lawyer, author, and (of course) the son of slain former US Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy Sr. He has never held major public office before.

The Packers quarterback reposted a teaser video for an interview with Kennedy conducted by Aubrey Marcus on his Instagram Story, he captioned the clip with muscle and heart emojis, and included the phrase #kennedy2024.

In the clip, Marcus begins it saying, “I’m here today with the next President of the United States Robert F. Kennedy Jr. On April 6th, he announced his bid to run as a Democrat in the 2024 elections for the presidency. I believe he’s going to win. He’s proven that he has the integrity and the courage to stand up to the corporatocracy, which has captured and is overunning all of political and state agencies. And he’s not afraid.”

“I believe he’s going to continue the legacy of his uncle, John F. Kennedy, and his father, Robert Kennedy. And we talk about that a bit on this podcast,” Marcus continues. “The podcast was recorded before he announced his candidacy so we didn’t get into any of those details, but you will see the integrity, the courage, the wisdom, and the absolute clarity of this man, who’s been slandered in the press everywhere he goes for standing up for what he believes to be the truth.”

Rodgers has always been open with his opinions regarding his career, his team, and even the world of politics. He was the center of controversy when he began openly challenging the COVID-19 vaccines.

That’s why it makes perfect sense that he would align with the views of Kennedy. They share the same skepticism.

After Rodgers had his medical exemption denied by the NFL in 2021, he claimed he had gone through an “immunization process through a holistic doctor.” He has also stated in the past that he is allergic to an ingredient that was used in both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.

Kennedy is also a known denigrator of the theories on coronavirus treatments. So much so that he was blocked from some public speaking engagements and on social media. It was ironic that Rodgers posted his response on Instagram, considering the platform banned RFK Jr. in 2021, alleging that he was spreading misinformation about the vaccines.

Kennedy will be following in the footsteps of his iconic uncle, who won the Presidency in 1960, and his father who was assassinated while pursuing the country’s highest office in 1968. His family has permeated politics in America for well over a century, including prominently his Uncle Edward, who served in the United States Senate for over 46 years.

Even with his amazing pedigree, it’s still a long shot for Aaron Rodgers’ handpicked guy. It’s almost like throwing a Hail Mary pass when it comes to any effort to unseat an incumbent.

Kennedy is the second nationally-known Democrat to launch a primary challenge against the president. Best-selling author Marianne Williamson is the other. She previously ran for the nomination in 2020 and even participated in the first two of the party’s debates, before eventually dropping out.

As for Rodgers, it’s been stated by many NFL observers that his move to The Big Apple is a “done deal”. However, the details between the two teams have not been worked out yet.  There have been many soft deadlines set for the transaction to take place, but nothing appears to be set in stone.

The NFL Draft, starting on April 27, could be one target for a trade. However, it looks like due to Rodgers’ salary, a more realistic time frame might be sometime after June 1. If the Pack waits until then to pull the trigger on their gunslinger, it will spread Rodgers’ dead-cap hit over two seasons as opposed to absorbing it all in 2023.
