Sauce Gardner and Aaron Rodgers have continued to flaunt their friendship on social media after the Jets cornerback gifted the veteran quarterback a No. 8 chain to mark his arrival in New York.
Back in April, Gardner, 22, tweeted that he and fellow jeweler Al got “something” for “ARod,” aka Rodgers, 39, along with a diamond emoji.
Two months later and on Saturday, Gardner presented the necklace to Rodgers while he was working on his conditioning at a Jets facility.
“Listen to me, listen to me,” Gardner said at first. “So you’re my jeweler’s favorite quarterback.” You know what I mean? Al the jeweler.
“So he wanted to cook something special for you… he gave me the idea, I said I think it would be a good idea…”

Then Gardner, who was drafted fourth overall by the Jets in the 2022 NFL Draft, opens a black jewelry box to reveal the #8 chain, which is adorned with Gang Green’s colors – green and white.
But that’s not all, as Rodgers then says to his second teammate, “You have to do it to me.”
Rodgers crosses his arms while wearing a “Phase Me” t-shirt and puts on a smile as recent footage of the franchise can be heard tweeting in the background.
“Thanks man, I appreciate that,” Rodgers then said to Gardner as the two hugged.

Both players have been closely linked since Rodgers joined the Big Apple from the Green Bay Packers in June.
Gardner not only expressed his delight at the addition of the four-time league MVP to the Jets roster, but he also got to attend a Knicks playoff game at the 2011 Super Bowl, which was also attended by actress Jessica Alba.
Rodgers and Gardner were also spotted training the Jets together, having fun together as the team takes on the Cleveland Browns in the Pro Football Hall of Fame game in Ohio on Aug. 3.
Jets head coach Robert Saleh has strongly indicated he won’t be using his regulars in the much-anticipated clash, though he hasn’t yet confirmed if Rodgers will be eliminated from the competition.
