Aaron Rodgers Describes Terrifying Shark Experience That Led to Him 'Blacking Out'

If the Packers end up hammering out a contract extension with Aaron Rodgers before the regular season starts, they might want to consider throwing a “shark clause” into the deal, just to make sure their starting quarterback stays as far away from sharks as possible for the rest of eternity.

For now, Rodgers is allowed to hang out with sharks whenever he wants, and apparently, he had a “terrifying” experience with one last month when he was filming a segment for Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week,” which is set to air starting on July 22.

Although Rodgers offered a brief glimpse into his shark experience last month when he shared a picture on Instagram, he didn’t really offer any details on the situation.

However, that all changed over the weekend, when he shared his shark story with Peter King for Football Morning in America. According to Rodgers, his one-on-one experience with the shark took place just off the coast of San Diego, and it was just as terrifying as his picture makes it look.

“Seriously. I was terrified,” Rodgers told King. “I was just thinking about what the expert they brought in had told me. He said there’s three sharks in the water. There’s the blue, the white, and the mako. The mako, if it’s bigger than you, get out. If it’s not, stay in and keep your eyes on it at all times. Never turn your back to it. The white, you look at it straight in the eyes the entire time. The only way it’s gonna come near you is if you’re not looking at it. And the blue, he’s gonna come right up to you. When he comes up to you, he’s got a long nose. You just Miyagi that.”
