Recently acquired Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers is getting into his New York state of mind after he was spotted shopping with friends in Manhattan.
The NFL legend, who arrived in the Big Apple last month, already seems to be loving life in his new home and even partied at Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’ concert on Saturday night – but before that he was out to add to her wardrobe.
Rodgers was spotted Saturday afternoon at John Varvatos’ NoHo stores – a men’s boutique at the address that once housed the famous CBGB music club in Bowery.
The quarterback and his friends were seen walking through the fashionable Manhattan neighborhood, taking in the sights and sounds.
And then hours later, the 39-year-old was caught on camera again – this time performing with Taylor Swift from a VIP area at MetLife Stadium.

The Jets quarterback turned out to be a huge Taylor Swift fan in a video posted on the team’s official Twitter account, where players were asked to indicate their favorite song from the singer whose Eras tour is stopping at MetLife Stadium this weekend.
‘Too much. Too many to count,’ the 39-year-old said when asked.
Then he got a little more specific.
‘All that is not [her album] “Folklore” probably. ‘August,’ ‘The 1st.’
Rodgers also offered an older pick to round out his picks from Swift’s 2020 album, as he called “New Year’s Day” a “banger.”
Meanwhile, tight end CJ Uzomah also called himself ‘Folklore’, while other teammates named ’22’ and ‘We’ll never get back together’ as their favourites.

His friend Sauce Gardner, however, couldn’t choose one. “I don’t listen to him,” he said.
Swift’s Eras Tour will take him home to the Jets (and Giants) this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Her most recent shows were at the Patriots’ Gillette Stadium, while she will tour the homes of the Bears, Lions, Steelers, Vikings, Bengals, Chiefs, Broncos, Seahawks, 49ers and Rams for the rest of his tour.
Rodgers suffered a minor calf injury on Day 2 of the Jets’ OTA, but said afterward he didn’t think it was “too serious.”
