Aaron Rodgers Still Getting Shit from Younger Brother Jordan Rodgers

NFL fans know of Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers.

Fewer people know about Aaron’s mediocre younger brother, Jordan Rodgers.

Jordan tried to follow in big brother’s footsteps and have his own football career. However, Jordan was only successful in getting shuffled around to three different teams in two years. Jordan finally got shut out of the NFL in 2014.

Jordan even decided to have a go with the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League. He quit the team in April 2015. I had no idea until today that Canada had a football league. My limited knowledge of Canadian sports made me assume that the country lived by hockey alone. It must be a fucking sad day when you realize that not even Canadian football is going to tolerate you.

When Jordan realized that playing football wasn’t getting him anywhere, he decided to try another avenue to get himself to fame and fortune: reality TV. Specifically, big-time reality TV, ABC’s The Bachelorette. Jordan managed to win the heart of Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher in 2016, and the two have been engaged ever since. Winning The Bachelorette gained Jordan the fame and recognition he had clearly been craving and led to his ESPN job offer as a college football analyst.

During Jordan’s stint on The Bachelorette, we learned that Jordan’s relationship with his big brother Aaron was actually not that great (Aaron never appeared on the show). It’s never been entirely clear what caused the animosity between Aaron and his family. Reports have indicated a possible combination of the Rodgers family disapproving of Aaron’s then relationship with actress Olivia Munn, and Jordan for using the family connection to spew all their family drama for reality TV fame.

This week, Aaron Rodgers made an appeal on Twitter requesting donations for the people affected by the wildfires in California.

And who should put in his two cents? Why it’s none other than pain-in-the-ass little brother, Jordan!

I don’t know what exactly the story is with the Rodgers family feud, but I do know that dragging your family drama into the social media arena never goes well. That’s a clusterfuck waiting to happen. But Jordan has always been a blatant fame-hog, and he’s not averse to stirring up shit in public.

He response tweet doesn’t come off as concern for his family and wildfire victims, but rather an opportunity to make some drama happen so he can get some media attention. Jordan has always come off as a little shit and he knows damn well that he’s exploiting a personal situation (and a tragedy), just to throw a social media punch at his big brother. Jordan is the asshole little brother who screams, “I’m not touching you!” while getting as close to your face as possible.
