No, Aaron Rodgers wasn’t carrying a bong around with him at the Jets’ game despite some heavy online speculation … recently speaking out to clear the hazy air.
The Jets quarterback set the internet alight when he was filmed on the sidelines accidentally dropping a box, and causing what many thought appeared to be a large glass bong to fall out. Of course, this gave way to heavy speculation online, as Aaron’s never been one to shy away from mind-altering substances.
However, during an appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” Thursday, Aaron said the glass object was actually just an uber-fancy bottle of tequila he had been gifted.
“Shout out to bongs everywhere … but that was not one of them,” he amused in an apparent swipe at those online hoping the potential smoking pipe would propel him into a fresh controversy.
On the subject of online chatter, he also ridiculed the bong conspiracy as “weak” … joking that if he was on the other end, he’d have guessed dolphin semen was in the beaker.
Remember, Aaron’s in the middle of some serious rehab for a ruptured Achilles. We spoke to sources close to the NFL star who tell us it’s still possible he could return by the end of the year … which would be an incredible medical comeback.
