Packers' Aaron Rodgers grew out his hair for this reason

GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN - SEPTEMBER 20: Aaron Rodgers #12 of the Green Bay Packers reacts as he walks of the field following the team's win against the Detroit Lions during an NFL football game at Lambeau Field on September 20, 2021 in Green Bay, Wiscon

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a new look this season.

After an up-and-down offseason, the reigning NFL MVP decided to grow out his hair and can even sport a man bun. Rodgers said there is a reason behind the change in appearance.

During a Thursday appearance on "The Pat McAfee Show," Rodgers said he is growing out his long hair for a Halloween costume. He claimed the year-long process will come to fruition on Oct. 31.

"This has been a year in the making for my costume," Rodgers said on the show before dropping a hint. "Somebody who is a hero of mine who has longish hair."

Rodgers didn’t give any more details away because he plans on making it a surprise when the holiday comes around.

Two weeks into the 2021 NFL season, Rodgers has the Packers at 1-1. After getting destroyed by the New Orleans Saints in the season opener, Green Bay bounced back against its NFC North rivals on Monday Night Football.
