Aaron Rodgers Dropped By Sponsor Over Unvaccinated Status, Confirming QB’s Concerns Of Witch-Hunt

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been putting out fires all week after the media discovered that he was unvaccinated, despite initial beliefs that the QB was vaxxed.

Announced Saturday, the reigning MVP has been dropped by one of his sponsors, Prevea Health, days after his status broke the news cycle.

The company released the following statement:

Prevea Health remains deeply committed to protecting its patients, staff, providers and communities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic’ This includes encouraging and helping all eligible populations to become vaccinated against COVID-19 to prevent the virus from further significantly impacting lives and livelihoods.

Rodgers’ cowering sponsor manifested a concern by the QB with revealing his status — eventually become a triggering issue for the media wokesters.

Cold take generator Mike Florio started the calls for Rodgers to lose sponsors when he publicly called out State Farm for featuring the quarterback in their marketing.

Rodgers had been hushed on his vaccination status, considering the NFL’s advantageous guidelines for vaccinated players and media’s witch-hunt on the unvaccinated.

Once the diagnosis and status were revealed — stemming from Wednesday’s news — Rodgers got rightfully ticked off behind the scenes.

In discussion with Pat McAfee on McAfee’s show Friday morning, Rodgers said that he had kept his status a secret for months due to the media’s coercion to get the jab. He also addressed their labeling of “flat earthers” for players willing to do individual research on the shot’s potential adverse effects.

After reading up on roughly “500 pages” of research, Rodgers reportedly discovered that he is allergic to one of the ingredients used in the approved vaccines. The quarterback claims to have also gone to NFL doctors to confirm the diagnosis, despite the League’s pushback on the comment.

Rodgers accurately read the field in the offseason and decided to avoid declaring himself as an unvaccinated player, as the media was out for blood.

One example was seen through unvaccinated Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, who caught plenty of heat stemming from a COVID case outbreak that occurred inside the QB’s room. The case was traced to backup Kellen Mond, but the focus of the ensuing hit pieces called out Cousins for being unvaccinated. Mond was vaccinated and quarantined after the breakthrough case.

Rodgers will miss Green Bay’s Week 9 matchup due to a 10-day quarantine period following a positive test result. The Packers (7-1) will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs (4-4) with Jordan Love as the interim QB.

  1. Tells you more about the Mike Florio’s of the world than Aaron Rodgers. You have to be pretty disturbed to cheer and actively work for someone else’s demise for having a different opinion than you. These people are sick and vindictive for no apparent reason. It feels like they weren’t in the cool club in high school and are exercising their revenge on anyone in any way in an effort to assuage those hurt feelings.

  2. I would never go to Prevea Health. Ever. It sounds like they are fascist company. The only thing Prevea Health is helping to support are big pharma’s corporate offices and their own profits (remember, they get a kickback from the gvt for every person having a covid positive test). And they don’t actually treat patients with covid. They wait until they are almost dead, then give them oxygen which speeds up the process. Or they give them big pharma, expensive, treatments that have deadly side effects. This is criminal behavior. They have a duty to treat people with effective treatments regardless of the cost.

    Good for Aaron Rodgers. He’s become my favorite QB even though I am sure I would probably disagree with him on any other subject.
