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.
