Following the news that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers failed to disclose that he was not vaccinated for COVID-19 and now has the virus, former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw had a few choice words to say about the football player’s recent health decisions.
During his commentary on FOX NFL Sunday, Bradshaw ripped into Aaron Rodgers for failing to disclose his COVID-19 vaccination status and his decision to take Ivermectin. “It would’ve been nice if he’d have just come down to the Naval Academy and learned to be honest,” Bradshaw declares. “Learned not to lie. Because that’s what you did, Aaron. You lied to everyone.”
Bradshaw also declared that what Aaron Rodgers was doing was taking “stuff” that would have kept him from getting COVID. But it didn’t prevent him from getting the virus after all. “Ivermectin is a cattle dewormer. Sorry folks, that’s what it is.”
The former football player goes on to add that the nation is currently divided politically. He also said that the country is divided about COVID-19 as well. “Whether or not to take the vaccine and unfortunately, we’ve got players that think only about themselves. I’m extremely disappointed in the actions of Aaron Rodgers.”
Aaron Rodgers Previously Stated that He Was Immunized
As previously reported, Aaron Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19. The Green Bay Packers confirmed that Rodgers was diagnosed with the virus. He is not playing this Sunday (November 7th) against the Kansas City Chiefs. The quarterback previously stated earlier in the 2021 football season that he was immunized.
Aaron Rodgers shared on The Pat McAfee Show that he wasn’t being deceptive when it came to his immunized comment. “I realize I’m in the crosshairs of the woke mob right now. So before my final nail gets put in my cancel culture casket, I think I’d like to set the record straight on so many of the blatant lies that are out there about myself.”
Aaron Rodgers explains that he did not lie in the initial press conference. “During that time, it was a witch hunt that was going on across the league. Where everybody in the media was so concerned about who was vaccinated.”
Aaron Rodgers notes his plan was to just say that he’s been immunized to avoid any scrutiny. “It wasn’t some sort of ruse or lie, it was the truth. Look, I’m not some sort of anti-vax, flat earther. I am somebody who’s a critical thinker. You guys know me. I march to the beat of my own drum.”
Rodgers goes on to add that he is allergic to an ingredient in mRNA vaccines. The allergy notably precluded him from getting the Moderna and Pfizer shots.
Could Aaron Rodgers Be Facing Suspension For Not Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine?
According to NFL.com, the professional football organization is now conducting interviews with Green Bay Packers personnel to reveal the team’s compliance with COVID-19 protocols following Aaron Rodgers’ recent diagnosis. Rodgers and the team could be facing fines for protocol violations.
