REPORT: Sketchy Details Emerge On Aaron Rodgers’ Unexplained Absence From New York Jets Minicamp

An NFL insider has provided a possible explanation on Aaron Rodgers’ mysterious absence from New York Jets mandatory minicamp.

Aaron Rodgers missed this week’s mandatory minicamp activities in what head coach Robert Saleh described as an “unexcused absence.” Saleh stated that the four-time MVP had to attend an event that was “important” to him, per ESPN’s Rich Cimini.

Speaking on “The Rich Eisen Show”, Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer reported that Jets coaches knew that Rodgers would miss the mandatory minicamp sessions. Breer added that Rodgers may have been absent because of an ayahuasca retreat:

“He told them that he had something he didn’t want to miss and that he was going to be away from the last week of the offseason program…They communicated to him that they wouldn’t be able to excuse him for that…You can’t do something for one person that you wouldn’t do for other stars on the team.”

Rodgers is entering his second season with the Jets, having been acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Green Bay Packers last year. Unfortunately, Rodgers suffered a season-ending Achilles tear just minutes into his Jets debut in a Monday night contest against the Buffalo Bills.

Rodgers has made headlines over the past year with some of his off-field antics and interviews. He has spread misinformation on COVID-19 and vaccines and several baseless conspiracy theories.

Back in January, Rodgers made headlines when he alleged that Jimmy Kimmel was on Jeffrey Epstein’s client list in an interview on “The Pat McAfee Show.” Kimmel threatened to sue Rodgers, and McAfee stated that the future Hall of Famer would not be on his program for the rest of the NFL season.

Aaron Rodgers & Jets Open Season At 49ers

For the second straight season, Rodgers and his Jets will begin their season on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” program.

Rodgers and the Jets are traveling to the west coast to take on his boyhood team, the San Francisco 49ers, on Sept. 9 (8:15 p.m. EST). Rodgers had many memorable showdowns with San Fran during his run with the Packers, including four playoff appearances that saw the 49ers emerge victorious each time.

After that, the Jets will travel to Music City to take on Will Levis’ Tennessee Titans in a Week 2 showdown.
