Terry Bradshaw, former Pittsburg Steelers quarterback and member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, shared some advice for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers after Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19.

After it was reported Rodgers would miss 10 days, per league rules for unvaccinated players, concern was raised for how the Packers enforced safety protocols. 

In an interview earlier this year, Rodgers was asked if he was vaccinated against COVID-19, to which he responded, “Yeah, I’ve been immunized.”

However, Rodgers confirmed last week he has not received a coronavirus vaccination. NFL reports Rodgers, “Received homeopathic treatment from his personal doctor to raise his antibody levels and asked the NFLPA to review his status. The players’ union, the NFL-NFLPA jointly designated infectious disease consultant and the league agreed that Rodgers’ treatment did not provide any documented protection from the coronavirus.”

“I’ll give Rodgers some advice: It would be nice if he came to the Naval Academy and learns how to be honest,” Bradshaw said while on set at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. “Learn not to lie because that’s what you did, Aaron.”

“We are a divided nation politically. We are a divided nation on COVID-19 — whether or not to take the vaccine — and, unfortunately, we got players that pretty much only think about themselves, and I’m extremely disappointed in the actions of Aaron Rodgers,” Bradshaw continued.
