It wasn’t just fans in the crowd cheering him on, but also his rumored girlfriend, Mallory Edens. She took to her Instagram story and posted herself in the stands. Mallory is the daughter of Milwaukee Bucks owner Wes Edens.
“I had some butterflies for sure. I think that’s always normal,” Rodgers said, via the team’s website.
“The first time I strap it on, that’s normal, whether it’s Year One playing the San Diego Chargers or Year 19 playing preseason No. 4, there’s always some butterflies. But I loosened up pretty good when I got the ovation when I took the field. That was a special moment, just to have that kind of support.”
Edens has been linked to Aaron Rodgers for months. They have even been seated together during Bucks games in the past.
Edens currently resides in New York so it makes it so much easier for them to have their relationship grow.
Rodgers had previously been engaged to actress Shailene Woodley, until they called off their engagement in February 2022.
Rodgers was dealt to the Jets in April after a down year that saw Green Bay miss the postseason for the first time since 2018. His new team is hopeful he can lead them back to the playoffs and end a franchise-record 12-year drought.
