The 2020 NFL MVP was in the middle of putting together another win for the Green Bay Packers when the broadcast cameras caught Rodgers and the Steelers head coach smiling at each other. Some Steelers fans got excited as the team could have a reasonable shot at acquiring Rodgers in the offseason.
To make matters even more interesting, Rodgers explained the interaction with Tomlin on Tuesday on “The Pat McAfee Show.”
“I’m a big Mike Tomlin fan, I have been for a long time. I like the way that he speaks about his team and the way he goes about his business,” Rodgers said. “I like his confidence. I’ve heard nothing but good things [about him] from guys that have played there. I like Tomlin.”
McAfee remarked that the moment brought a buzz to Steelers Nation, but Rodgers was quick to temper expectations.
