(Like: is Rodgers nonetheless making an attempt to, uh, thwart Cyrus The Virus?)

Or, maybe, he’s simply making an attempt to remind his fellow Packers that many arms make gentle work, or one thing. Then once more, it doesn’t come as an excessive amount of of a shock to Rodgers intent on trolling along with his preseason theatrics. On Wednesday, he rocked a The Workplace T-shirt and a pair of holographic protect sun shades. Good to include multitudes.
