Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, isn’t simply a fan of the Milwaukee Brewers. He owns a small stake in the Bucks.
If you saw Aaron Rodgers and Randal Cobb in Game 2 of the Milwaukee Bucks’ playoff series against the Chicago Bulls, you may or may not be aware of Rodgers’ ties to the franchise.
Rodgers has a number of compelling reasons for attending Bucks games. To begin with, it makes sense for him to attend important Wisconsin athletic events as the Packers’ top quarterback. But it doesn’t stop there.
Rodgers has a stake in the team as well
The Milwaukee Bucks have Aaron Rodgers as a minority owner
Rodgers became a minority owner of the Bucks in 2018 after purchasing a one-percent investment in the team.
He is the only active NFL player who also owns a basketball team.
Rodgers’ investment in the Bucks has obviously paid off, even if he hasn’t been able to deliver any recent titles to the Packers.
The Bucks have reached the Eastern Conference Finals in two of the three seasons since becoming part owners, and won the NBA Finals last year.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks are defending their title this year, but they’ll have to get by the Bulls in the first round.
Given Rodgers’ big new Green Bay contract, he could be able to afford to increase his ownership stake. Rodgers agreed to a three-year contract for $150.8 million after a protracted legal battle. On a year-to-year compensation basis, he is now the highest-paid player in NFL history.
