Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder is a fan of the Chicago Bears, but he is not happy with their quarterback situation, so he is looking to the Bears rivals up north for a fix.
At a concert in Milwaukee on Monday, Vedder told the crowd that he would like to see quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was in attendance at the Bradley Center, head to Chicago, and later said he ran the idea of a quarterback swap by Rodgers, who had an accurate reaction.
Eddie Vedder said he asked Aaron Rodgers if he could be traded straight up for Jay Cutler. "I've never seen a grown man laugh so hard."— JJ Stankevitz (@JJStankevitz) October 21, 2014
The band also dedicated its song "Given to Fly" to Rodgers, who Vedder referred to as "royalty," which is accurate in Wisconsin.
Vedder also wore a Packers jersey for portions of the show, but, according to CBS Sports, refused to put on a cheesehead a fan threw onto the stage.
