The blunt bromance continues for Aaron Rodgers and Sauce Gardner.
During Jets OTAs in June, the four-time NFL MVP and the reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year practiced their new secret greeting, which mimed them smoking marijuana.
The inside joke appears to include a new member, based on a video posted to TikTok under the account @saucexwilson.
In the clip, which was posted three days ago, Gardner and Rodgers are seen talking to a water girl during Jets practice.
The video’s caption pretty much says it all: “Aaron Rodgers and Sauce Gardner pass their blunt to the water girl.”
Rodgers isn’t hiding his interest in mind-altering experiences.
The quarterback, a self-proclaimed hippie, has acquired a well-known fondness for darkness retreats and ayahuasca, claiming the psychedelic drug led to his “best season” in 2021 and helped him learn to “love himself.”
The 39-year-old Rodgers and the 22-year-old Gardner make quite the pair.
They went out to dinner in May and attended a Knicks playoff game, during which the young cornerback didn’t know who actress Jessica Alba was.
In July, Gardner got Rodgers “a surprise gift”: a green and white No. 8 necklace.
“So, you’re my jeweler’s favorite quarterback,” Gardner told Rodgers. “You know what I mean, Al the Jeweler. So he wanted to cook up something special for you. He brought the idea to me, I said ‘I think it would be a good idea.’
“I think he’ll like it,” Gardner said of the gift. “It’s probably not his style all the way, but I feel like it’s gonna be good since he’s in New York now.”
