According to Clay Travis of FOX Sports, Rodgers, 27, the younger brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and a former NFL player himself, scored a “new gig” at the SEC Network.
“So @SECNetwork just gave @JRodgers11 a rose too,” the tweet reads. “Congrats on the new gig.”
Neither Rodgers nor SEC Network have released details about the Vanderbilt alum’s new role at the company, so it’s still unclear what the new job will entail.

Rodgers was an instant front-runner on the 12th season of The Bachelorette thanks to his good looks and immediate connection with Fletcher. He also made headlines when his ex-girlfriend, who is super close to Aaron’s girlfriend Olivia Munn, took to Instagram to accuse him of cheating after the first episode of the reality dating show aired.
“Riding the bench doesn’t get in the way of a relationship, but cheating does,” Brittany Farrar wrote in response to Rodger’s explanation on the show that his football career contributed to ending his last relationship.
Chad Johnson, this season’s “villain,” commented on the news with a remark implying Rodgers had ulterior motives for appearing on the reality show.
“Looks like @JRodgers11 got what he wanted out of all of this,” he wrote on Twitter. “Way to play your role buddy!”
The Bachelorette airs next Monday at (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
