Aaron Rodgers loves creating controversy and headlines when he’s not on the football field.
According to Packer beat writer Matt Schneidmann, the Green Bay Packers quarterback was wearing an eye-catching shirt at practice this week.
Schneidmann tweeted out that Rodgers was seen wearing a “Rodgers/Lazard ‘23 MAKE GREEN BAY GREAT AGAIN” t-shirt.
No still photography allowed in the locker room and he didn’t talk today, but Aaron Rodgers is wearing a “Rodgers/Lazard ‘23 MAKE GREEN BAY GREAT AGAIN” T-shirt.

Fans quickly shared their reactions to Rodgers’ shirt, which resembled Donald Trump’s famous slogan “Make America Great Again” during his Presidential campaign.
Some fans hated that Rodgers made a Trump themed shirt.

And some fans just see it as Rodgers creatively supporting his new #1 wide receiver Allen Lazard.
People say rodgers is a bad teammate and then he supports his new WR1 and they have an issue with it https://t.co/5eX64m557t

Packers fans better be ready because Rodgers is going to be in the news a lot this season about things other than football.
