He said, “I was at the NFL honors both times. My dear friend who passed in January was the Producer, so I think I had a heads up both times. Didn’t necessarily have a speech planned or gave a speech that was very concise.”

Aaron Rodgers honored to win MVP

Despite Rodgers not having many words at the time, it is clear how much winning the MVP meant to him. The NFL MVP is a prestigious award, and only a handful of players ever get the opportunity to win. And the fact that Rodgers won the honor twice puts him in rarified air.

He further added, “I don’t think either time there’s such an excitement of winning that award and then just the enormity of getting up on stage and having to deliver some sort of words to a large audience.

“But I do remember just the pride I had up there both times. But I couldn’t tell you exactly where I was, but I think I got tipped off both times.”
