We know this is Aaron Rodgers final season with the Green Bay Packers, what we don’t know is where Rodgers could be headed.
One of those team’s that has been speculated as a potential landing spot for Rodgers has been the Pittsburgh Steelers and what happened on Sunday will only add fuel to that fire.
During Sunday’s game between the Steelers and Packers, Rodgers and Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin shared a special moment that had social media buzzing:
Days before the game, Rodgers raved about Pittsburgh and head coach Mike Tomlin during an appearance on the “Pat McAfee Show”.
“I’ve been around a lot of Pittsburgh people over the years. I have loved my time with all of them,” said Rodgers, whose first coach, Mike McCarthy, is a Pittsburgh native. “I have learned to speak the [Pittsburgh accent] really well, which is actually allowed me to follow and become a big fan of Pittsburgh Dad. … It’s a great, blue-collar town. There’s a lot of great people that live there. There’s a lot of history in that city.”
Rodgers spoke highly of Tomlin, who in his 15th season is the third-longest-tenured head coach in the NFL.
“I have a ton of respect for Mike,” Rodgers said. “I think he’s a fantastic coach. I love the way that he leads. I love that way that he talks after the games. He always seems to keep things really even keel. Looks like he’s somebody that players love playing for.”
