Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen recently spent some time golfing with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Adam Thielen was literally born a Minnesota Vikings fan, so it’s in his blood to despise the Green Bay Packers. Sometimes Thielen can’t help himself, but not liking the Packers is just something that comes naturally from the native of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.

However, the Vikings receiver recently pushed his disdain of Green Bay aside for a few days to spend some time out on the golf course with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Thielen and Rodgers both played together in the same grouping during the recent American Century Championship tournament out in Lake Tahoe. After their time together, the veteran Minnesota pass-catcher might have an idea about what Rodgers plans to do during the upcoming season.

Following the recent golf tournament he participated in, Thielen was a guest on “The Pat McAfee Show” and he talked about his experience at the event, Minnesota’s OTAs, and how his journey into the NFL is basically a ready-made plot for a movie.

That was all great and everything to hear about, but McAfee and all of his listeners were curious to hear if Rodgers dropped any hints about his playing status for the upcoming season during his time on the course with Thielen. The Vikings receiver gave his best guess about what the reigning NFL MVP plans to do this year.

"“I think he’s feeling pretty good. You know he’s been doing the Yoga thing or the whatever he does and I think it’s got him in a pretty good mindset. I saw it on the golf course.Hopefully, he’s not playing this year, just for [the Vikings] sake. But I’m sure he’ll be out there slinging that thing around. You never know.”"

As much as he and the rest of his Minnesota teammates would like to see Rodgers sit out the entire 2021 season, it doesn’t sound like Thielen thinks that will be what happens.

At the same time, who really knows what the Packers quarterback is going to do. Most probably didn’t expect Green Bay to have all of this drama during the last few months with an MVP signal-caller who just helped lead the team to two straight appearances in the NFC Championship.

With training camp beginning at the end of the month, we could potentially find out a little more about Rodgers’ current status with Minnesota’s divisional rival in the near future. But like Thielen said, hopefully, he’s not going to play next season.
