If you haven’t heard that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is scheduled to host two full weeks of Jeopardy, then you must be living under a rock. The All-Pro player recorded 18 episodes of the show across two days in February and we’re all about to see the results of that grind real soon.
But how does this tie into the Chargers? Well, when asked who in the NFL he’d like to compete against on the show, Rodgers mentioned his former teammate and now Bolts center, Corey Linsley.
“One guy I would love to beat — love, love, love to beat — is one of my former teammates now, Corey Linsley,” Rodgers told Stephen Battaglio of the Los Angeles Times. “Corey is really brilliant. There is no one I would want to beat more if we were both contestants than Corey Linsley.”

“I'd be good at categories like Midwestern geography, grit, manual labor, manners. Aaron would win categories like golf, yachting, Met Gala attire.”

The main thing Chargers fans should take away from this bit of news is that they got themselves an extremely intelligent player, on and off the field, at a very important position. If one of the best quarterbacks at all time singles you out as someone he deeply respects, that has to stand for something, right?
