Aaron Rodgers’ encounter with a New York Jets water girl this week caused something of a stir.
Earlier in the preseason, Rodgers and his new best friend, team cornerback Sauce Gardner, set the internet ablaze with their now-infamous ‘blunt’ handshake.
It generated precisely the sort of reaction you would expect.
This week, Rodgers and Gardner decided to step it up a notch. During a filmed practice, the pair could be seen doing their blunt handshake with a Jets water girl.

The Jets have been in the headlines quite a bit for weird stuff in recent days. Between Zach Wilson’s mom bringing all her girlfriends to the most recent game, Wilson’s girlfriend’s outfit choice to the outing, and Rodgers’ girl partying it up with Lil Wayne, it has been one thing after another.
And that’s to say nothing of Rodgers’ photos with Kay Adams.
Amidst it all, though – there are very legitimate questions about what Rodgers will be able to do for this franchise.
Obviously on paper New York looks quite good. The offense and defense both seem pretty stacked. But injuries are always a concern when your biggest star is 39 years old.
The fact that Rodgers is already nursing a calf injury isn’t exactly a promising sign of things to come.
Impressive stuff from Alabama. https://t.co/l3nQO50REa

Green Bay Packers fans from last year can attest to what Rodgers looks like when he is playing hurt.
There is a reason he ended up getting is walking papers this offseason.
One way or another, Rodgers and the Jets promise to be interesting in 2023-24. Will they actually be able to win, though? Time will tell.
