Rodgers: Braun ‘Looked Me In The Eye’ & Lied To Me

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he was “shocked” when his friend Ryan Braun admitted he violated baseball’s rules against using performance-enhancing substances.

Rodgers says the Milwaukee Brewers slugger “looked me in the eye” and it “didn’t feel great being lied to like that.” He says he’s disappointed.

Braun has accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension. He and Rodgers are friends and co-own a Milwaukee restaurant. Rodgers defended Braun on Twitter last year, saying he would bet his salary that his friend was clean.

On Thursday at training camp, Rodgers says he was simply “backing up a friend.”
