Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers may have failed to win back-to-back Super Bowl, but the quarterback is being honored with one of the most elite nods for athletes who have reached super star status by hosting Saturday Night Live.
Last year’s Super Bowl MVP hinted at the idea during a Milwaukee radio interview. “I’m hopeful that we can figure something out there,” Rodgers told ESPN 540.
Already getting camera time, Rodgers was a special guest commentator at Super Bowl XLVI on NBC. It seems at though Rodgers was able to impress NBC execs off the field to be considered for the honor. Rodgers even talked to some current cast members about signing-on. Past quaterbacks who have hosted SNL include Peyton Manning, Joe Montana and Tom Brady.
Despite winning one more Super Bowl than his brother, Eli Manning needs to win a few more Oreo twist-offs before he is considered.
