A teammate gave Aaron Rodgers a tricked-out Aston Martin golf cart and recently presented it to him in a funny video.
You have to wonder if this was the part of QB’s deal to come back to Green Bay.
Packers teammate David Bakhtiari got the three-time NFL MVP a ridiculously cool golf cart for training camp purposes. He took a video of it and Bleacher Report Gridiron posted the 41-second clip.
The black golf cart came with some neat features. First, Bakhtiari showed off the personalized golf cart model’s plate with the name brand on it. Then, he pointed to a decal list of Rodgers’s MVP seasons. Another feature was a No. 12 embossed into the driver seat. Another feature was a fuzzy pink steering wheel cover.
Finally, the Packers’ offensive tackle put a special license plate on the cart. Bakhtiari wears No. 69 on his jersey, and the plate reads “(heart)LOVN69.”
The New York Post reported that Aaron Rodgers had gifted the offensive tackle numerous gifts over the years. Those included a wave runner, a quad, a sauna, and a watch, but Bakhtiari had never returned the favor.
Bakhtiari said the golf cart was something Rodgers “always wanted.” Now, the tackle asked Rodgers to stop shaming him as he had heard him do so on “The Pat McAfee Show.”
Now the two are more than likely even.
Aaron Rodgers’ Tricked-Out Golf Cart A Reason To Return?
This past week, Aaron Rodgers and his team reworked his contract, and the quarterback expressed that he was “all in 100 percent” on this season.
This new deal reworked Rodgers’s contract, making this season his last. Rodgers would also not lose any guaranteed money as part of the deal.
Over the offseason, Rogers had taken to the media to express his displeasure with the team’s roster moves. He wanted more offensive weapons to do his job and was vocal about a desire to leave town.
The Packers countered with offers of more money. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Packers offered the quarterback a two-year extension worth more than Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes, who currently makes more than $50 million per year.
The star player said earlier that he would not participate in offseason training activities (OTA) and told the media that he wanted his team to trade him. Retirement was also an option for the QB.
In the past few weeks, Rogers came back to the team before training camp. Wide receiver Randall Cobb, a former Green Bay teammate, returned to the team in a deal.
The former Super Bowl XLV MVP also got engaged to Shailene Woodley in February. Additional wedding plans are unknown. The star was also in the news as a guest host on the game show “Jeopardy!”
