A Green Bay Packers star offensive lineman weighed in on the suspicious-looking glass container that fell out of a box Aaron Rodgers was carrying before the New York Jets loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football.
Rodgers, who is rehabbing from a torn Achilles, was on the sideline for the game. He hopes to play again this season. But he made headlines for another reason this week for his behavior on the sideline.
Rodgers was seen picking up a grey box during the Jets pregame. A glass container fell out of the box. Many fans on social media had theories about what the piece of glass was, with many speculating it could be a bong.

Green Bay Packers star OL asks Rodgers about “beaker”
Bakhtiari saw the video of Rodgers fumbling the bag. Bakhtiari asked Rodgers on X what was in the package and said it appeared to look like a beaker Bakhtiari would have used in a science classroom.

What was in Aaron Rodgers’ box?
Rodgers explained what was in the box during his appearance Friday on the Pat McAfee Show. Rodgers said he wanted to give a shout-out to bongs, but the glass was actually a Maestro Dobel tequila:
“That was not a bong, first of all. Let’s go through a couple of things,” Rodgers said. Number one, I was dapping up by buddy Hugh [Coles]. Hugh plays George McFly in the new Broadway play ‘Back to the Future.’ So shout out to Hugh.
Number two, there’s a gentleman named John Sutcliffe, he is the ESPN Deportes sideline reporter and he’s tried to interview me in Spanish a few times with some funny results. I dap him up, it’s partly his fault because I was walking off the field with my Maestro Dobel tequila that John Sutcliffe gives me every time he sees me on ‘Monday Night Football.’
“I’m walking off and I hear a British guy yell my name. So I turn over and there’s Hugh, my buddy. He’s British, but he’s incredible in ‘Back to the Future’ without the accent.
Anyway, I see Hugh, give him a hug, dap him up, go to pick it back up, s–t falls out and I lose half my tequila. So, shout out to John for bringing me tequila. Shout out to Maestro Dobel. Shout out to Hugh. Shout out to bongs everywhere, but that was not one of them.”
Glad that has been cleared up. It would have been interesting to see the NFL make Rodgers take a drug test if that had been bong water spraying on the turf.
