Until his recent stint on ABC’s “The Bachelorette”, Jordan Rodgers was a marginally successful quarterback at Vanderbilt who bounced around several NFL teams as a backup. His biggest claim to fame is being the brother of Packers All-Pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Jordan shocked many Bachelorette viewers, mostly sports loving boyfriends forced to watch the show with their significant other, when he took a shot at his brother on a recent episode. Jordan revealed that he and Aaron do not have a close relationship, or really much of a relationship at all.
“It’s just the way he’s chosen to do life,” Jordan lamented. “I chose to stay close with my family and my parents and my brother.”
Today in “Read Between the Lines”, Colin and Jason were asked if it’s wrong to criticize Aaron Rodgers for his bother’s comments. Colin said Aaron shouldn’t take heat for the comments because he has other obligations as a franchise quarterback that may limit his “bro” time.
“The super successful sibling, often, can’t always be at every family picnic. I’m sorry if Aaron Rodgers can’t be with the “fam”, because he’s preparing to face somebody in the NFC Championship.”
Jason agreed that it’s off base to criticize Aaron Rodgers for his relationship with his brother, and he had harsh criticism for Jordan Rodgers using Aaron as his meal ticket to the Bachelorette.
“Who is Jordan Rodgers without Aaron Rodgers? Would he be on the Bachelor, or Bachelorette, or whatever show it is, if he wasn’t Aaron Rodgers’ brother? That’s the only reason he’s on there. He’s using Aaron Rodgers to build up himself. This is disgusting.”
It’s sad, but sometimes siblings just don’t get along. Jordan likes engagement rings, Aaron prefers Super Bowl rings.
