A Jets fan in Las Vegas had an interesting encounter with Aaron Rodgers prior to New York’s game against the Raiders on Sunday.
The supporter posted a photo with Rodgers on social media Saturday evening, surprised by the NFL legend.
He was wearing the injured quarterback’s uniform at the Aria hotel in Vegas when a stranger complimented him on his choice of jersey. He initially thought it was just another fan.
The caption for the photo read, “*Someone taps me on the shoulder,*” “Nice sweater bro,” Jets by a million tomorrow. I’m in shock now. #Take flight’
The fan later spoke to MLFootball where he told the full story of his encounter with the quarterback.

“My back was turned the other way and he was walking through the entrance/mezzanine of the Aria, and as he passed me he said, ‘Nice sweater, man,’” he recalled.
‘I said, ‘Yessir, go jets!’ But thought it was just another #JETS FAN.”
“And by the grace of God, this man across the hall shouted, ‘DO YOU even know who that is?’ And I immediately thought RODGERS’
“So I chase him down and ask him to take a picture, he was so nice.” I told him, “I can’t wait to see you THIS YEAR and he gave me a real nod and thank you.”‘
‘Aaron said, “Thank you for wearing the jersey and supporting us.”’

The fan later revealed that he even dressed up as Rodgers on Halloween.
The encounter with the fan was not the first time Rodgers has been seen in Las Vegas this weekend. He was also featured in a photo posted to the Instagram story of Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams.
Rodgers and Adams played together for eight years with the Green Bay Packers and formed a strong bond both on and off the field.
Shortly after the trade deadline, reports emerged that the Jets were trying to trade for Adams amid the Raiders’ chaotic season, but Las Vegas had no plans to ship the six-time Pro Bowler out of town.
