Welcome to your Memorial Day edition of Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers and the NFL from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Matt Velazquez’ look at the long road Aaron Rodgers took to buying into the Milwaukee Bucks ownership group.
It was a move that united some of the largest brands in the state and made Rodgers the first active NFL player to become an NBA owner.
While it was a surprise at the time, it was actually many months in the making. Following Tuesday's practice in Green Bay, Rodgers spoke with reporters about how he got in with the Bucks as well as how he feels about the hiring of new Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer.
"It’s actually been almost a year now in the making," Rodgers said. "We wanted to announce it at the beginning of the season but I was in California dealing with the post-surgery blues, so I didn’t have a chance to make it out to the first game, so we decided to push that back a little bit into the offseason.
While he is close with Edens, Lasry and fellow majority owner Jamie Dinan, Rodgers isn't on equal footing with that trio when it comes to ownership of the Bucks. According to the team, Rodgers is a "limited partner."
