Aaron Rodgers Tells Pat McAfee About UFO Experience

“Not only does the Super Bowl winning quarterback claim to have witnessed a UFO sighting firsthand, but he also told McAfee three fighter jets appeared to be chasing it.”

The Pat McAfee Show segment with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is quickly becoming one the best weekly football spots on radio. 

Every athlete has some sort of hobby away from their sport, for Rodgers, it’s UFOs, an interest sparked by a sighting 15 years ago. Not only does the Super Bowl winning quarterback claim to have witnessed a UFO sighting firsthand, but he also told McAfee three fighter jets appeared to be chasing it. The sighting, according to Rodgers happened in New Jersey, when he was staying with a friend and former California teammate Steve Levy. 

“It was a snowy night,” Rodgers began to tell McAfee. “[The UFO] was orange and moving in the clouds from left to right and the bizarre part that was attached to it was that after it was out of sight we were frozen looking at each other wondering what the hell just happened, about 30 seconds after that we heard fighter jets.”

Rodgers said there appeared to be three fighter jets chasing after the unidentified flying object and the quarterback never saw anything about the sighting reported in the news the next day or days after. Seemingly odd to Rodgers, he took up an interest in researching UFOs.

A lot of things can be mistaken as an unidentified flying object, especially in New Jersey where there are areas of high volume air traffic. But Rodgers seems pretty confident of what he saw and the former NFL MVP already gets enough attention, he doesn’t need to be making up stories about UFO sightings. 

Arguably the NFL’s best quarterback of the last dozen years, Rodgers is rarely portrayed as having an engaging public personality. Credit McAfee for helping the 36-year old Rodgers go from bland to entertaining in just three weeks.
