Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce denied any friction between him and New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
After the Chiefs’ 23-20 victory over the Jets on Oct. 1, Rodgers, 39, appeared on the broadcast and referred to Kelce, 34, as “Mr. Pfizer’. Rodgers also challenged Kelce to a debate about the Covid-19 vaccine.
“To each their own and I think he just enjoyed it,” Kelce said.
“He has his ways. “He has his own thoughts about how he feels about things,” Kelce added. “And he has the right to do that. How you feel about certain things is entirely up to you.”

Aaron Rodgers rejected Covid-19 vaccines in 2021, saying he had allergies to the vaccine’s ingredients
Rodgers made headlines in 2021 as sports returned from the pandemic-induced hiatus. The then-Packers quarterback refused to receive the Pfizer vaccine because he was allergic to one of the ingredients in the mRNA vaccines.
As for the remaining option, Rodgers didn’t want to take the Johnson & Johnson shot after seeing people suffering side effects from the vaccine. Rodgers then appealed a vaccination protocol, but his request was denied by the NFL.
On a January episode of The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers addressed the situation, calling out Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson for the negative press.
Rodgers’ comments about Kelce were inspired by Kelce’s performance in a Pfizer advertising in September.
“Who would have thought I would get into a vaccine war with Aaron Rodgers, man?” Kelce said. ‘Mister. Pfizer versus the Johnson & Johnson family over there.’
Kelce was seen hugging and laughing with the injured Rodgers before their Week 4 showdown with the Jets.
“You won’t see me up here in the big debate against Aaron Rodgers over something like that. “I think it’s just fun and games, at least between us, and I have all the respect for him.”
