Aaron Rodgers just won’t let his Pfizer obsession rest, especially when it comes to firing shots at Chiefs star Travis Kelce. The KC tight end has done commercials for ‘the shot’ in recent months, which has drawn criticism from the Jets quarterback, who has been a staunch critic of the treatment. Rodgers has trolled Kelce by calling him ‘Mr. Pfizer’ repeatedly during appearances on The Pat McAfee Show. And now? He has a challenge for his fellow Pro Bowler.
Rodgers, currently rehabbing from a ruptured Achilles Tendon that he suffered in week 1, told hosts McAfee and former Green Bay teammate A.J. Hawk that he would happily discuss his thoughts with Travis Kelce.
For years, the Jets QB has engaged in multiple conspiracy theories that have covered the gamut. He’s put forth several different concepts regarding everything from the military, the economy, and even the existence of alien life. It may be hard to believe, but when Rodgers isn’t wearing his helmet, he seemingly trades it in for a tinfoil hat.
During the exchange, Rodgers suggested that he and Independent Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., whose campaign is largely built on his anti-vax stance, take on Travis Kelce and Dr. Anthony Fauci in a debate about the merits of the COVID treatment.

Despite being one of the NFL’s best players and likable characters, Travis Kelce has been under the microscope recently – mostly due to his very high-profile relationship with pop singing sensation Taylor Swift. When you date one of the most famous women in the world, you’re going to receive some blowback.
With much of the criticism of the Chiefs playmaker has been about his political stances, as he and Swift are known to be socially liberal. His endorsement of the Pfizer vaccine (as well as Swift’s anti-Trump stance over the years), has seen Travis Kelce receive a lot of negative press. Particularly from conservative media.
In 2021, Aaron Rodgers made headlines when he spent weeks refusing to give his vaccination status during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Later, he would claim that he was “immunized” during an appearance on McAfee’s show. However, Rodgers also contracted the virus while playing for the Green Bay Packers that same season.
