What if I told you about this Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers best season of his NFL career…
Was it done while being absolutely zoomed out of his ass? Ok, no really…but he credits psychedelics for the back-to-back MVP seasons.
Here, the 38-year-old recently joined the Aubrey Marcus Podcast and raised an intriguing point about how psychedelics use played a role in the best season of his NFL career.
“I don’t think it’s a coincidence. I really don’t. I don’t really believe in coincidences at the moment. It is the universe that makes things happen when they are meant to happen.”
After glorious experiences with psilocybin (aka shrooms), Rodgers (along with his ex-girlfriend Danica Patrick) and some friends took a trip to South America ahead of the 2020 season.
And in addition to Machu Picchu, the crew tried ayahuasca, a psychoactive tea containing DMT, which he claims helped him love himself and others unconditionally.
He confessed to Marcus:
“To me, that self-love is one of the cornerstones of your mental health. That’s what Ayahuasca did for me, it helped me see how to love myself unconditionally.
Only in this unconditional self-love can I truly love others unconditionally. And what better way to work on my mental health than having an experience like this?”
Rodgers has been very vocal about his newfound love for the game of soccer, and could we attribute it all to ayahuasca?
He remembered his first intake:
“I lay on my mat afterwards and then opened my eyes and it felt like opening my eyes for the first time.
I really feel like this experience paved the way for the best season of my career.”
He also said he noticed a change in his relationship with the Packers organization in general after taking the drug, saying:
“I think the greatest gift I can give my teammates is that I can step up and be someone who can model unconditional love for them.
They won’t care what you say until they know how much you care.”
Of course, that’s not too surprising given that Rodgers seems to have embraced a more free-spirited lifestyle in recent years. And now he’s rumored to be dating a girl’s name “Blu (of the earth)”.
Nonetheless, the proof is in the pudding… Back-to-back MVPs don’t lie.

Aaron Rodgers enters training camp with full force
Given that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is in the midst of his hipster phase, I fully expected the man to roll into camp barefoot in a beanie, round sunglasses, leather jacket and skinny jeans.
But no, he rolled in and repeated…
A women’s bat, Wrangler jeans and boots?
Looks like redneck Fabio out here.
Seriously, he looks like he’s preparing to play two-handed football with Brett Favre and his dog in a Wrangler commercial, the complete opposite of what probably every other NFL fan was expecting. It’s either that or he’ll be cast in Trailer park guys.
But perhaps the biggest (and best) comparison… Nic Cage in the glorious film known as Con Air
Of course, Rodgers was never one to go along with popular opinion, so I don’t think the new makeup is all that surprising.
Still, it looks like the man is coming to camp ready to fuck some shit.
If your favorite NFL team has Green Bay on the roster, pay attention… I’m going with Aaron and the boys for a million.
Have I heard MVP?
Aaron Rodgers really showed up as Con Air’s Nick Cage at boot camp 🤣
