It is currently the NFL offseason, with many players preparing for training camp this summer. However, some players are trying to relax during their last few weeks of time off. Some are playing golf, while others are on vacation. There are even those who are already in the weight room, training. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has kept rather quiet during his hiatus, but hints are now being dropped that he could appear on HBO’s Game of Thrones this weekend.
Yes, the last season of Game of Thrones could end up being more epic than it already i –, but is Rodgers really going to be on the show?
According to The Chicago Tribune, there has been no confirmation nor denial of Rodgers’ possible appearance on HBO’s hit show. Still, it’s not totally out of the question, and fans will have to wait until Sunday night to see the truth of the matter.
Rodgers has not made it any kind of secret that he is a Game of Thrones fan, and he’s talked about it on social media a number of times, too. Last year, he spoke with Dan Patrick about the show, and was asked how he’d like any possible appearance on the show to work out. Rodgers said he wanted one of the “steamy scenes” — or to be killed — if he ever appeared on GoT.
Now, it seems as if the unexpected is truly about to happen — but will Rodgers see his wish come true?
Aaron Rodgers is going to be in Game of Thrones. Enjoy.

Aaron Negler, who is a reporter for “Cheesehead TV,” claims that Rodgers will appear on GoT this Sunday. However, he didn’t really give out any further info on the possible appearance. HBO has said nothing, and Rodgers is keeping quiet.
The eighth season of Game of Thrones began back in mid-April, and will officially bring an end to the popular saga. Rodgers has tweeted about people spoiling different episodes, and even had an interesting hashtag near the end of April.

Some other celebrities have appeared in small cameo roles on Game of Thrones, which means it wouldn’t be out of the question for Aaron Rodgers to appear. The NFL star would likely have a small bit part — or could end up being killed, as he once hoped. But who would have the honor of securing such a death?
It’s not like Game of Thrones really needed much help when it came to promotion of this season, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to maybe — or maybe not — have a future NFL Hall of Famer show up on-screen.
