Aaron Rodgers Supports Tom Brady


Being a quarterback in the NFL is like being a part of a brotherhood, at least if you ask Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers quarterback is sticking by his fellow athlete Tom Brady during the whole Deflategate scandal. 

"Tom's a buddy, and he's going through some stuff right now," Rodgers told "I'm sure we'll have resolution here pretty soon... I don't know enough about it to make any comment on [Deflategate]. But Tom's a buddy, and I'd like to see it get figured out before the season."

Rodgers continued about the different pressures quarterbacks and under and how it's never fun, as a friend or competitor, to see another player held out of the game.

"There's 32 of us," Rodgers said. "A lot of expectations. A lot of adversity. We also have a great opportunity and platform to make a difference. I think you realize how difficult it is to play the position, the stuff you deal with every single day. You wear a lot of hats, as a leader, as an encourager. As a supporter. You lead from a lot of different vantage points. It's also really thrilling. You know what those guys are going through and it's fun to get to know some of the guys."

There's something about those Green Bay quarterbacks that just make them love Brady.
