Last week Boomer Esiason claimed a source told him Aaron Rodgers could threaten to boycott the Super Bowl if the Green Bay Packers got there. We told you it was an absolutely ridiculous premise and would never happen. Now Rodgers has addressed the story and he was far less kind that we were.

Rodgers joined the Pat McAfee Show for his weekly appearance on Tuesday and absolutely ripped the entire premise. He said of the story, "that's the dumbest sh*t I've heard."

So yeah, let's put this to bed.
