Where Was Aaron Rodgers During Jets Minicamp? The Surprising Answer

Aaron Rodgers

The NFL community has been wondering for almost a month now, where in the world is Aaron Rodgers?

Rodgers had attended almost every day of Phase 1, missed just one week of Phase 2, and attended every OTA practice of the Jets' offseason workouts.

We dropped a video highlighting his absence back in June. An absence that was totally botched by Jets' leadership, allowing the New York media to run wild with the story.

Aaron Rodgers Spotted

Since then, Rodgers has been found. He was spotted with his former teammate, Marcedes Lewis, walking to their seats to watch UFC 303 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rodgers is a huge UFC fan, so it was no surprise to see one of his first appearances back at one of UFC's most marquee events this year.

Where Rodgers Came from is Quite Interesting

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling went on an interview with Jason McIntyre of ‘The Herd' FS1 talk show and confirmed the quarterback's whereabouts.

“Me and Aaron have been great friends since I was in Green Bay,” Valdes-Scantling said. “I hit him up saying I was coming up to L.A., so let’s hit some routes. So we got it in and went out to some high school to run some routes. It was good.”

And apparently, Rodgers was in Egypt....

At the time of Rodgers' minicamp absence, rumors were raging that he was attending another 'darkness' or ayahuasca retreat similar to 2022 that had the internet abuzz.

Finding out Rodgers was in Egypt almost certainly confirms this report, as the country is known for a multitude of quality ayahuasca retreat locations.


As many have pointed out, Rodgers has been at most every offseason workout. The timing of his missing a key mandatory team workout was most curious. The good thing is that all this will be water under the bridge if the he can show up healthy and lead the Jets to their first playoff appearance in 14 years. Their last appearance was in 2010, where they went 11-5 and lost in the American Football Conference Championship.
