Aaron Rodgers, the NFL quarterback, received the Dennis Byrd Award from the Jets for being the team’s most inspirational teammate, despite being sidelined due to an Achilles injury.

The award was given for his presence, intentionality, and thoughtfulness in how he interacts with everyone in the organization.

Additionally, a feud between Rodgers and Jimmy Kimmel escalated, with Kimmel threatening a lawsuit after Rodgers joked about the pending release of the Epstein client list.

“Well, that’s the whole thing. Most of these awards are not necessarily what’s done on the football field,” head coach Robert Saleh said.

“These guys are with each other all the time. They’re dealing with the building, they’re dealing with every single department, and Aaron’s presence, I’ve said it a million times, he loves his teammates, his teammates love him.”

“He’s so intentional with how he approaches everyone in the building, he’s very thoughtful in the way he does things, and he’s a tremendous human, he really is, and well deserving of the award.”

Former teammate David Bakhtiari defended Rodgers by mocking Kimmel’s response.

“Tell me you’re on the Jeffrey Epstein client list, without telling me you’re on the Jeffrey Epstein client list,” Bakhtiari wrote.
