When news like this breaks, it takes over as the top story for at least a week.

None of that matters because Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has put a ring on it!
First and foremost, we want to congratulate Aaron and Shailene on their engagement.
It is always very exciting to move into the next part of your life with someone you love.
You know it is true love when the dog approves of the relationship.

Just like anything in the sports world though, we need to break it down.
What Happened With Danica Patrick?
Aaron Rodgers and Danica dated for about two years before they called it quits.
The official release of this news was on July 16, 2020, by a rep for Danica Patrick.
Danica talked about being proposed to and being married on several occasions, including an interview on E! News.
Aaron ceased to exist on Danica’s social media after their trip to Peru in April 2020.
The next time we saw Aaron with a girl around his arm was at a celebrity golf tournament between July 6-12 2020.
That woman was Shailene Woodley.
Shortly after they were seen together, the breakup with Patrick became public knowledge, although we do not know the reason for their split.
The concern here is Rodgers dated Patrick for 2 years and before that, Olivia Munn for 3 years (2014-2017).
Now, he started dating Woodley for 7 months, and now they are engaged?
Seems like Rodgers is sick of the dating game and decided to finally pull the trigger.
The Innocence of Shailene
Woodley has been famous for saying she never thought she would be with someone who “threw balls for a living”.

She stated that she fell in love with the Aaron that wants to be the host of “Jeopardy!”.
She reminds me of girls who walk up to guys and say “I don’t understand why you like that foos-ball game”
I think that is why Aaron appreciates this relationship so much though.
He does not have to be a football player all the time because Woodley does not care for that aspect of his life as much as everyone does.
He can turn off the football player in him and just be his nerdy self around Woodley or some other personality he has.
If there was any doubt in Aaron’s mind about Woodley saying no to his proposal, he eliminated that with the ring.

The details on the ring were not officially released, but researchers broke down the interview with Jimmy Fallon.
She flashed the ring a few times, like in the picture above, so the experts were on the case.
The current estimation placed the cost of the ring at $500,000 USD.
The ring may have cost at least $US500,000, one expert said. https://t.co/7z2ngRFpHW

The old saying is “spend two months’ salary on your engagement ring”.
By our numbers, Aaron went a little on the cheap side.
He is making $33.5M a season which equates to $2,093,750 per game.
If he plays 4 games a month, that means in two months, he makes $16,750,000.
Come on Aaron, let’s throw in a nice necklace or something.
Even with the cheap ring, they both seem very happy.
Congratulations Aaron and Shailene!
