Aaron Rodgers Is Lighting His Football Legacy on Fire

One of Aaron Rodgers' greatest strengths as a Hall of Fame player is his awareness.

At his best, the New York Jets quarterback anticipates aggressive defenders' actions and uses his legs to generate spectacular downfield plays.

If only Rodgers had such acute awareness outside of sports, where he appears to have a flair for inciting unnecessary drama and exposing himself as a phony academic who can't seem to stop displaying his uncontrolled narcissism. 

He isn't in danger of endangering his inevitable Hall of Fame induction, but the more he delves into these theories and tries to moonlight as an infectious-disease expert, the more his actions will overshadow his stellar career.

Rodgers' most recent incident came earlier this month, during his weekly paid appearance on ESPN's daily sports show The Pat McAfee Show.

During the show, the Super Bowl winner implied that Jimmy Kimmel, the late-night talk-show presenter, was tied to financier Jeffrey Epstein, who was suspected of running a sophisticated sex-trafficking operation involving young females who catered to high-profile clients. 

Recently, a series of court records was unsealed and made public as part of a case against Epstein's girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, who was sentenced to 20 years in jail for sex trafficking girls for Epstein. He died by suicide in 2019. 

CBS will broadcast the Bills-Steelers game at 4:30 p.m. ET.
