Aaron Rodgers not amused at being confused with Aaron Hernandez

June 27, 2013|By Chuck Schilken

Aaron Rodgers is not being accused of murder.

Another football player named Aaron is. That would be former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who was arrested and charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd on Wednesday.

When Hernandez was being transported by police after his arrest, ESPN reporter Jeremy Schaap apparently got his Aarons mixed up and accidentally said on air, "There is a lot of eveidence, albeit circumstancial, implicating Aaron Rodgers in the death of Odin Lloyd."

The Green Bay Packers quarterback was less than thrilled:

Obviously it was just a bit of confusion on the part of Schaap, who was trying to keep up with a breaking story.

But Rodgers' frustration can be easily understood as well.
