Aaron Rogers Responds To Social Media Claims With Picture

Among the star-studded attendees at UFC 302 in Newark, New Jersey, was none other than New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers. But it wasn’t just the fights that had everyone talking—former President Donald Trump’s entrance stole the show, receiving a thunderous ovation from the crowd.

Videos flooding social media captured the moment Trump walked to his seat with UFC President Dana White. Aaron Rodgers and his former Green Bay Packers teammate Mercedes Lewis were seated as Trump strolled past them. The social media buzz didn’t stop there. Fans of Rodgers took to his Instagram, filling the comments with pro-Trump support after he posted a video with Lewis.

On Sunday, Rodgers shared a photo on his Instagram Stories showing him shaking hands with Trump between fights, captioning the moment as “Priceless.” This snapshot only fueled more reactions from his followers.

It’s interesting to note that Rodgers, while backing independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for president, still found himself amid a wave of Trump enthusiasm. Trump’s appearance at UFC 302 marked one of his first public outings following the recent guilty verdict in his New York criminal case.

Beyond the UFC excitement, Rodgers has been seen actively participating in the Jets’ organized team activities, gearing up for the 2024 season. The Jets acquired Rodgers in a surprising trade with the Green Bay Packers last offseason, and the hype around the quarterback and the team was immense as they headed into the 2023 season.

However, Rodgers faced a setback when he tore his Achilles just four plays into the first game, sidelining him for the rest of the season. Determined to make a strong comeback, Rodgers is focused on staying healthy and leading the Jets to the top of the AFC East.
