Aaron Rodgers Says He Would Have ‘Definitely’ Hosted ‘Jeopardy!’ If He Was Offered The Job, He Would Accept It

“Yeah, I definitely would’ve,” Rodgers told Sirius XM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio when asked if he would have accept the opportunity.

Aaron Rodgers appeared to have a lot of free time this offseason as tensions with the Green Bay Packers led to rumors that he was seriously considering retirement. Despite the fact that Rodgers committed to a new deal to stay on and maybe make a few more Lambeau Leaps before his football career ends, he still wanted to do his best to fill the late Alex Trebek’s shoes.

Rodgers, a long-time Jeopardy! fan, was given the opportunity to guest host the show last season, and he presented a compelling argument for why he deserved to be considered. That didn’t happen since Jeopardy! decided to give over the reigns to Mike Richards (at least for non-special episodes), but Rodgers acknowledged on Friday that he would have been honored to take over if it had worked with his football schedule.

“Yeah, I definitely would’ve,” Rodgers told Sirius XM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio when asked if he would have accept the opportunity. “I mean, if they would have figured out a way to make it work with my schedule, yeah, for sure.”

This conversation took place before Richards resigned amid a storm of controversy concerning things and actions from his past that surfaced after his appointment to the position. As a result, Jeopardy! can now take one of three paths: 1. Have Mayim Bialik, who is due to host the show’s primetime specials, take over full-time, 2. find someone else, or 3. just give Rodgers the job.
