Aaron Rodgers made it clear Tuesday he’s ready to turn the page following his controversial COVID vaccine comments last week … saying, “I’m an athlete, not an activist.”
Just four days after the Green Bay Packers star made waves with his 46-minute, vax rant on “The Pat McAfee Show” … he rejoined the former NFL player to try to clear some things up.
Rodgers began his interview by offering a bit of an apology … telling McAfee, “I made some comments that people might have felt were misleading. And to anybody who felt misled by those comments, I take full responsibility.”

Rodgers then appeared to distance himself from being any sort of poster boy for the unvaccinated — saying his research led him to do what he believes is right for himself, not necessarily for the masses.
“I made a decision that was in my best interest based on consulting with my doctors, and I understand that not everybody is going to understand that, necessarily,” Rodgers said. “But I respect everybody’s opinions.”
Rodgers added that he’s ready to move on to focusing solely on quarterbacking and not global health — telling McAfee there’s a chance he’ll be under center for the Packers vs. the Seahawks on Sunday.
