Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers gave his teammates an interesting Christmas gift last season, wide receiver Jordy Nelson told the Dan Patrick Show on Monday morning:

Monday was Packers coach Mike McCarthy's 51st birthday, and Nelson said Rodgers was the player most likely to give the coach a gift. But Nelson's subsequent details about the quarterback's gift-giving were likely a bit more than Patrick -- and listeners -- were expecting.

"Would it be a gag gift he would get coach McCarthy?" Patrick asked.

"There's a 99-percent chance it's a gag gift, yes," Nelson said. "Absolutely. You should see some of Aaron's Christmas gifts that he'll bring to his fellow quarterbacks."

After initial prodding by Patrick, Nelson said the gifts were "way too inappropriate." When asked for some of Rodgers' "closest to appropriate" gifts, Nelson obliged.

"Last year [for Christmas] -- I don't know how to explain it -- it was an undergarment for men who might wear it if they were strippers," he said.

"So it was kind of a thong, kind of a Magic Mike-type outfit?" Patrick asked.

"Kind of yes," Nelson said. "And my question for him was, 'Did you actually stand in line and buy that, or did you buy it off line?' And he told me he stood in line, which ... I don't know if I can buy that."
