Aaron Rodgers didn’t like Jeremy Schaap confusing him for Aaron Hernandez

Aaron-Rodgers-Giants-Faked-InjuriesAaron Hernandez and Aaron Rodgers have very few things in common, but obviously their first name is one of them. Given the fact that Hernandez has been arrested and charged with murder, you can understand why Rodgers would not want to be associated with him an any way. Unfortunately, a slip of the tongue from ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap on Wednesday briefly inserted the Green Bay Packers quarterback into the discussion.

Following Hernandez’s Wednesday afternoon arraignment, Schaap said the following during a live broadcast.

“There is a lot of evidence, albeit circumstantial, implicating Aaron Rodgers in the death of Odin Lloyd.”

Slips of the tongue are typically harmless, and you could make the argument that this one was as well. Although, it’s always important to keep your names straight when discussing a murder investigation. Rodgers sent the following tweet when he was made aware of the segment.

Schaap later responded, pointing out that he corrected himself immediately after and that it was not his first slip of the tongue.

It probably will be the last time he confuses Rodgers and Hernandez — we hope. Otherwise, Schaap might end up getting the Jon Gruden/Magic Johnson treatment from the Packers signal-caller.
