Aaron Rodgers Probably Regrets These Tweets About Ryan Braun's Innocence

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffJuly 22, 2013

With the news that Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs and will be suspended the remainder of the 2013 season, it looks like Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is the one who should be eating crow after his tweets from a year ago. 

Rodgers tweeted in full confidence that the media was slandering an innocent man and even told one fan he'd put his salary for next season on Braun's innocence. 

UPDATE: Tuesday, July 23, 4:10 p.m. ET

Lindsay Jones of USA Today Sports interviewed the fan whom Rodgers tweeted at, who jokingly said he'd take just a game check from Rodgers, which would cost Rodgers $281,250

End of update---

Aside from being two star athletes who play in Wisconsin, Rodgers and Braun are also business partners as owners of the 8-Twelve MVP Bar and Grill, named after their numbers. 

Now, hindsight is always 20/20, and there's obviously no way Rodgers could have known his baseball buddy was guilty, but these were pretty bold claims.
