Says ‘Time Away’ From Fiancée Shailene Woodley Will Be Good

NFL season is kicking into high gear.

Aaron Rodgers

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but with the NFL season gearing up, Aaron and Shailene about get more than 17 weeks of absence.

In an interview with Haute Living, Rodgers commented on their very different schedules with a very positive attitude.



It’s a busy work time for her, so [my decision] probably came at a good time for both of us to be able to focus on our work,”  he told the magazine.

The quarterback was referring to his decision to return to Green Bay after some contentious negotiations, or lack thereof.


I think it’s going to be a good thing. I mean, her work was shut down for an entire year, and she’s booked a number of projects. She enjoys working and her own routine, which I obviously enjoy, too.

The couple secretly got engaged last year, with Rodgers announcing it during his “Most Valuable Player” award acceptance speech.

It seems to use that Shailene is more into his 'Jeopardy!' hosting skills rather than skills on the gridiron.
