GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Nothing says thank you from a quarterback to an offensive line like an all-terrain vehicle.
At least that’s the way Aaron Rodgers sees it.
Known for thanking his teammates with lavish Christmas presents -- from flat-screen televisions to tablets to golf clubs -- Rodgers arranged for his linemen to receive Polaris General ATVs.
The gift-giving took place Wednesday at Lambeau Field during a break from OTAs.
A Polaris General sells for nearly $20,000. No word on whether Rodgers got a bulk discount, but according to a company spokesman, “Polaris and Aaron partnered to give his linemen the ultimate thank-you gift.”
Late last season, Packers coach Mike McCarthy, in an interview for a story about Rodgers' leadership, raved about his quarterback's “generous gift-giving to his teammates that people don’t realize.”
