Aaron Rodgers wouldn’t be opposed to the Packers adding his friend
Aaron Rodgers has done an excellent job building a relationship with his wide receiver corps this season. With the departure of Davante Adams, Rodgers needed to rely on new faces in the Green Bay Packers passing game. Over the past few weeks, Rodgers has appeared to build a good rapport with rookie wide receiver Romeo Doubs.
However, the Packers still have injuries at the wide receiver position. Sammy Watkins is currently on the injured reserve. Allen Lazard and Christian Watson have also been on the injury report in the early season. The Packers might try and scoop up a free agent like Odell Beckham Jr. to help later in the season for a playoff run.
Rodgers would be on board with that plan. He was asked about his relationship with Beckham on The Pat McAfee Show Tuesday after a Tweet from Beckham went viral. Rodgers said he is hoping to be paired with Beckham, who Rodgers considers to be a friend, on the same team in the future.
“Odell and I have been friends for a number of years now,” Rodgers said, sporting a Manchester City soccer jersey. (A timely uniform decision with Packers’ upcoming Week 5 game in London.) “We keep in contact often. We often talked at various times over the years, and obviously, with a player like that, you’re always hoping there’s a time when you can figure things out and play together.”

McAfee asked Rodgers if he was interested in doing “plants” with Beckham. (Plants being the euphemism for the psychoactive ayahuasca, which Rodgers has bragged about taking.)
“If he was interested, I think I’d enjoy that,” Rodgers said.
Beckham would be fun to see in a Packers uniform
Beckham could be the player that tips the scales to put the Packers into the Super Bowl. He was a significant reason the Los Angeles Rams won the Super Bowl last season. Rodgers and Beckham would be a lethal combination this winter if Beckham can rehab in time. The two having a friendship would be a plus. Although Packers fans wanting a championship should hope they wait until after the season to do the “plants.”
