DeShone Kizer was the backup quarterback for Aaron Rodgers during the 2018-19 NFL season for the Green Bay Packers. In a recent interview, Kizer spoke about meeting the Packers star upon his arrival. He mentioned one of his initial encounters with Rodgers. Kizer said the four-time NFL MVP allegedly wasted no time pressing him on his beliefs regarding the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

Kizer said:

“[He] shut the door and the first thing that comes out of Aaron Rodgers’ mouth was, ‘You believe in 911? You should read up on that.'"

Kizer added:

"And then we just started learning up about the playbook, and I was like, 'Wow, I don't know where this is going.'"

Kizer noted in the interview that Rodgers' 911 comments were a bonding exercise between the two of them:

"What it ended up being was a thought experiment where he wanted me to go back and look into some of the conspiracies around it. We really bonded over that and started sharing some books, and we started talking about some other things - some history, some business, some finance."

In that lone season with the Packers, Kizer played in just three games, throwing for 187 yards and two interceptions. For the former Notre Dame star, that season was more about what happened off the field than on it.
