This Packers quarterback wants to be the next “Jeopardy!” host: Who is Aaron Rodgers?
Rodgers, “Jeopardy!” superfan and NFL superstar, is the longtime guest host of the game show until April 16, with its first episode airing on April 5.
While Rodgers has been outspoken about the uncertainty of his future with the Packers, one thing that seems pretty interesting is calling audibles – on the court and, perhaps, in companies off the field. In Tuesday’s “Good Morning Football”, Rodgers explained that he wanted to keep playing football, but really wanted to welcome “Jeopardy!” also.
“I want to keep playing. I still have the passion and the fire and this last season has reminded a lot of people that I can still play at a very, very high level. I can do this for several years. at the same time i feel i can host @Peril. “-@ AaronRodgers12 pic.twitter.com/eoMl0pLf5J

Rodgers said that “there is something interesting about getting away from (football) at heights”, but he still has the passion and the fire to keep playing.
Rodgers wouldn’t close the door on hosting the show on a permanent basis, however:
“At the same time, I feel like I can accommodate ‘Jeopardy !, and I would love to,’ ‘said Rodgers. “I feel like I can bring something different to the show – I was the youngest guest host. And there is a different audience that I could bring with her, I hope the numbers show that in the next couple of weeks.…
“I feel like I could do both (play soccer and animate) which would be a lot of fun and a big challenge,” Rodgers said.
NFL Network’s Peter Schrager said Rodgers plans to do the show in February, March, April and June and then be ready for training camp in July.
Rodgers’ debut as a guest host garnered acclaim from social media and networking executives, with the reigning NFL MVP living a (another) dream.
