LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Look out, Donald Driver. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers revealed plans are afoot for some healthy teasing when the team’s wide receiver – and “Dancing with the Stars” Season 14 champ — returns for practice.
“We’re a team that likes to joke around a lot so we’re going to have a lot of pranks come training camp time,” Aaron told Access Hollywood over the weekend in Los Angeles at Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards. “Because he was on the show, that gives us some easy idea options.”
Although careful not to tip the team’s hand, Aaron did hint at the direction they may be going.
“Nobody’s immune from the pranks, whether you’re a rookie or a 13 year vet,” Aaron smiled. “There are just so many options when it comes to… think about some of the outfits that maybe he put on and the dances that he did – there are a lot of options there.”
The QB, who attended “DWTS” just before the finals, said he enjoyed being a part of Donald’s cheering section.
“It’s fun to watch on TV, but it’s even more impressive in person to see how fast they’re moving, the steps and the precision, which [Donald, who is] not a trained dancer, was able to learn in a matter of weeks. So, that was a lot of fun to watch,” Aaron said.
But don’t expect the quarterback to ever put on mambo arms and ballroom pants.
“I have a little bit of rhythm. Maybe above average for my complexion,” Aaron laughed. “But, no, it’s definitely not something I’m probably going to do.”
