Aaron Rodgers recently said that these last six weeks have been the most fun that he’s had in “a while”, and it’s certainly not hard to see why.
Just a couple of weeks after taking in a pair of Taylor Swift concerts at Metlife Stadium — his new football home — the 39-year-old future Hall of Famer returned to the venue to take in the tunes of Ed Sheeran.
This time, however, it appears the four-time NFL MVP brought a plus-one.
After being spotted with her at a Milwaukee Bucks game back in December, Rodgers appeared to have rumored girlfriend Mallory Edens with him for the Saturday night show, as the pair both posted Instagram stories from what appeared to be the same viewpoint in their luxury suite.

Luckily for Rodgers, while Mallory’s father Wes is the billionaire owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, she was actually raised in New York and went to school at Princeton University, so she’s certainly used to the area if not already living there.
New York Jets fans will certainly be hoping that Edens is Rodgers’ lucky charm as the moribund franchise aims to make the playoffs for the first time since 2010 — a postseason drought that is currently the longest in the National Football League.
The Jets acquired Rodgers — arguably the best quarterback that the organization has ever employed — in a trade with the Green Bay Packers back in April. Almost immediately, the Jets became Super Bowl contenders as the bookies have their odds to win this year’s Super Bowl at around +1600, which trails only the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills, San Francisco 49ers, Cincinnati Bengals, and Dallas Cowboys.
