GREEN BAY, Wis. – Aaron Rodgers is playing Powerball, but don’t worry Green Bay Packers fans, it doesn’t sound like your quarterback would quit his job if he won the $1.5 billion prize.

So what would the NFL’s highest-paid player do if he won?

“I’d buy an NHL team,” Rodgers said.

Rodgers, who makes an average of $22 million per season, said he plans to watch Wednesday night’s drawing.

“I mean, why not?” Rodgers said. “C’mon, everybody’s got the same opportunity, right? One in 292 million, or billion? Yeah, I’ve got my tickets.”
