Rodgers has had some connection to the Pittsburgh area throughout his NFL career, playing for now-former Packers’ Head Coach and Pittsburgh-native Mike McCarthy.
He also appears on Plum-native McAfee’s show every Tuesday afternoon.
“I’ve been around a lot of Pittsburgh people over the years, I’ve loved my time with all of them,” Rodgers said. “I’ve learned to speak the language really well. Which has allowed me to follow and become a big fan of Pittsburgh Dad. If you haven’t seen him on Twitter, big ‘shaht aht’ some incredible, incredible videos. That was most of my career with Mike [McCarthy] in the headset, trying to figure out what the hell he was saying. It’s a great blue-collar town, there’s a lot of great people that live there, it’s got a lot of history, that city.”
