Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley have decided to call of their engagement, and that promptly led to Bears legend Dick Butkus making a joke about the situation.
Rodgers and Woodley had started dating all the way back in 2020, but news of their relationship was only made public months after as Rodgers announced to everyone that he was engaged to Woodley during his MVP acceptance speech in 2021.
However, about two years later now, the two have decided to split. The decision wasn’t made on bad terms as the two reportedly came to a mutual understanding that things weren’t working the same as before.

Reportedly, Woodley felt a little neglected in the relationship as Rodgers prioritized football above everything else. While that was great for his career, it didn’t work too well for his relationship.
One source said, “While Shailene is supportive of Aaron’s career, he put football first and they were barely spending any time together. She felt he neglected their relationship. Neither of them was happy.”
Another source said, “There were too many obstacles. They’re both adults and decided to part amicably.”
