Rodgers' Twitter bet draws attention
More on ESPN.com
Aaron Rodgers is one of hundreds of people whom Ryan Braun has put in an impossible spot, writes Kevin Seifert. Blog
It all started when Todd Sutton tweeted last year that Rodgers was delusional over his insistence that Braun had not used performance-enhancing drugs. Rodgers then responded that he would bet a year's salary that his friend was clean, including the hashtags ponyup and exonerated.
Now that Braun has accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension rather than fight Major League Baseball over evidence he used PEDs, Sutton tells USA Today Sports he would settle for something else.
"I'd just take a game check," Sutton said.
A game check from Rodgers would be $281,250.
"I'm not really expecting to hear from him. It'd be cool, but I doubt it's going to happen," Sutton, a 37-year-old flight nurse, told the paper.
Sutton also says he still likes the quarterback.
Rodgers, who has more than 1 million Twitter followers, had not posted on his account since Thursday.
