Getty Images Quite possibly the most embarrassing day of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ life came on April 18, 2005.  That day, Rodgers sat in the green room at Radio City Music Hall in New York City as 23 other NFL draftees’ names were called ahead of his.  Rodgers was supposedly considered by the San Francisco 49ers who chose quarterback Alex Smith instead. Now you can share a piece of that day with Rodgers by purchasing the suit coat he was wearing while ESPN cameras surrounded him like birds of prey.  Heritage Auctions has the coat up for bidding.  Rodgers decided that he didn’t need the coat to remember that day and the coat found its way to a Goodwill store. According to Heritage Auctions, “The story of how our consignor obtained the suit is amazing in its own right. During a trip to the Goodwill store on West Mason Street in Green Bay, he stumbled across the highly recognizable piece and took it off the rack for closer inspection. It looked to be approximately the proper size for an NFL quarterback and, sure enough, the interior pocket tag read: ‘Aaron Rogers [sic] 4/18/05.’ In addition, there is also a tag for Elevee Custom Clothing of Van Nuys, Calif., the company responsible for tailoring suits for Rodgers, Adrian Peterson, Larry Fitzgerald, Dwight Howard, Kevin Durant and many others. A terrific conversation piece that the winning bidder will possibly be able to sell back to Rodgers someday, as he will undoubtedly need another nice suit coat to accept a future MVP award as head man in Titletown.” Heritage Auctions The current high bid is $3,500 and the next minimum offer would be $3,750.  I’d say things have turned around for Rodgers since that day.  The Super Bowl XLV champion and MVP recently agreed to a 5 year, $110 million contract extension making him the highest paid player in NFL history. It’s gotta be the coat. CBS Sports
