Aaron Rodgers is known for being one of the best football players in the NFL today but he’s become well-known for generating headlines in the offseason over his appearance and curious opinions.

The two-time defending NFL MVP made waves a few weeks back when he introduced a very large tattoo full of “meaning” that he wasn’t quite up for sharing just yet. He also showed up to Green Bay Packers camp with a very Nicolas Cage-inspired look. He then gave an honest admission about his use of ayahuasca, which is a psychoactive brew that contains DMT, a hallucinogenic tryptamine drug.

Rodgers‘ latest headline-grabbing move involved the removal of a certain facial feature that has made itself known every now and again in recent years. His mustache.

Rodgers showed up to the Packers’ first preseason game rocking a solid stache that caught people’s attention.

However, the stache’s days were numbered and, according to The Athletic’s Matt Schneidman, the mustache did not survive this weekend.

The lack of facial follicles was confirmed by WFRV’s Lauren Helmbrecht.

The news of Rodgers’ shaving his stache sent “shockwaves” through the NFL community.

What will Rodgers do next? Who can say? Perhaps he’ll shave his head. Or maybe he’ll unveil another tattoo. Or maybe he’ll claim we don’t need to take vaccines for monkeypox. The sky is truly the limit for Aaron.
