Jeopardy! Isn’t Just Going to Hire Some Former NFL Quarterback Like Aaron Rodgers to Be New Host
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers may be facing irreconcilable differences. Their breakup seems imminent, even if the Packers refuse to admit it. One of cards Rodgers has left to play is to walk away, which he is reportedly prepared to do if the team does not fire their general manager.
If that’s how this goes, it’s pretty crazy, but Rodgers is one of the few NFL players who can do it. He’s made around $200 million on the field during his career and he once had a touchdown celebration named after a national ad campaign, so he’s not going to be hurting for money, even with an upcoming wedding to pay for.
Still, he has other stuff he wants to do. Like host Jeopardy! for example. To hear some NFL reporters parrot this tidbit, you would think the Jeopardy! hosting job is just sitting there waiting for Rodgers to come take it. This is most likely not true. Jeopardy! is as much of an American institution as the Packers. Only one of them wants Rodgers full time right now.
