New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers will no longer be making appearances on ESPN's 'The Pat McAfee Show' for the remainder of the NFL season. This news was announced by the show's host, Pat McAfee, during Wednesday's episode.
Rodgers, who has been a regular guest on the show, has decided to end his appearances amid controversy related to remarks made about late financier Jeffrey Epstein on Jimmy Kimmel Live. However, a source familiar with the matter stated that Rodgers' decision was not related to these comments, but rather his recent behavior.
The 'Pat McAfee Show', which is under ESPN, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which airs on ABC, are both Disney properties. The back-and-forth between the two shows has been a focal point of media attention in recent days.
Despite Rodgers' departure from the show, the remainder of the NFL season will continue to be covered extensively on 'The Pat McAfee Show'. Fans can expect to see more NFL-related content and interviews with other players and personalities from the world of sports.
As the NFL season progresses, the absence of Rodgers from the show will undoubtedly be felt, but the show promises to continue delivering entertaining and insightful coverage of the league.
