Recently-acquired Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers is getting into his New York State of Mind after being spotted out shopping with pals in Manhattan.
The NFL legend, who arrived in the Big Apple last month, appears to already be loving life in his new home, and even partied at Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’ concert on Saturday night – but before that, he was out adding to his wardrobe.
Rodgers was spotted in NoHo shopping at John Varvatos on Saturday afternoon – a men’s boutique store at the address that used to house the famous music club CBGB on Bowery.
The quarterback and his friends were seen walking in the fashionable area of Manhattan, taking in the sights and sounds.
And then a few hours later, the 39-year-old was again caught on camera – this time jamming out to Taylor Swift from a VIP area at MetLife Stadium.

The Jets quarterback revealed himself to be a massive Taylor Swift fan in a video posted to the team’s official Twitter account, where players were asked their favorite song from the singer whose Eras Tour stops at MetLife Stadium this weekend.
‘Too many. Too many to count,’ the 39-year-old said when asked the question.
Then he got a bit more specific.
‘Anything off of [her album] ‘Folklore’ probably. ‘August,’ ‘The 1.”
Rodgers also offered an older pick to supplement his choices from Swift’s 2020 album, as he called ‘New Year’s Day’ a ‘banger.’
Meanwhile, tight end C.J. Uzomah also called himself a ‘Folklore’ guy,’ while other teammates named ’22’ and ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ as their favorites.

His friend Sauce Gardner, though, couldn’t pick one. ‘I don’t listen to her,’ he said.
Swift’s Eras Tour will take her to the Jets (and Giants’) home stadium this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Her most recent shows came at the Patriots’ Gillette Stadium, while she’ll visit the homes of the Bears, Lions, Steelers, Vikings, Bengals, Chiefs, Broncos, Seahawks, 49ers and Rams on the rest of her tour.
Rodgers suffered a minor calf injury on the second day of the Jets’ OTAs, but said afterwards he didn’t think it was ‘too serious.’
