Aaron Rodgers gives extra Packers tickets to area police

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers likes to send fans on scavenger hunts for tickets on game day.

However, there will be no #RodgersTicketHunt before Thursday's Packers-Bears game at Lambeau Field.

No. 12 has given his extra tickets to police officers in the Green Bay area.

Rodgers tweeted, "To those waiting on the #rodgerstickethunt, I gave my tickets this week to police officers from the Green Bay Area. Enjoy the game!"


Police officers will increase on-field presence during a pre-game show of unity at the Packers-Bears game.

Players, coaches, and staff will link arms during the national anthem. Players have invited fans to also link arms.

The show of unity was an idea thought up by Packers players to support "freedom, equality, tolerance, understanding, and justice for those who have been unjustly treated, discriminated against or otherwise treated unfairly," reads a statement from the team.
