It hasn’t even been a month since Aaron Rodgers officially joined the New York Jets and became a prominent figure in the city, but it seems like Rodgers is already making the most out of his status in The Big Apple, supporting some of the other teams throughout the city.
As Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk points out, Rodgers has certainly embraced the New York sports culture recently, as evidenced by his appearances at multiple postseason games throughout the city.
“The new quarterback of New York’s little brother NFL franchise has spent time last night and today at Madison Square Garden in support of one of the local hockey teams — and one of the local basketball teams,” Florio wrote. “Rodgers attended the Rangers playoff game on Saturday night, and the Knicks playoff game on Sunday. He’s fortunate the Milwaukee Bucks have been eliminated; he owns three percent of the team.”
Rodgers is clearly making major moves in his new home city, and the NFL world had plenty to say about it on Twitter.
The problem with the Big Apple pro sports scene is that it usually stinks. But At least Rodgers will get that soon enough.

Looking forward to Rodgers’ reaction the first time the NY media criticizes him after a bad game. Rodgers’ ego isn’t used to that kind of media attention

Rodgers seems to be embracing New York, it will be interesting to see how the city embraces him when he suits up for the Jets next season.
