It was Alex Smith grabbing the 49ers jersey in the 2005 draft, not Aaron Rodgers. But it appears the Green Bay quarterback will get his chance to wear Smith's digits in a matter of days.
Before Smith and the 49ers knocked off Rodgers' Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday, TMZ.com reported that Rodgers enticed Boyz II Men to sing the pregame national anthem.
"But before the guys would agree to sing," TMZ reported, "Nathan Morris (the guy with the deep voice) had one MAJOR demand. Turns out, Morris is a bigtime 49ers fan ... and proposed a friendly bet to the QB -- if SF wins, Rodgers MUST WEAR an Alex Smith 49ers jersey for the remainder of the week. If GB wins, Morris has agreed to wear a Rodgers jersey. A rep for the band confirms."
But since the Packers are preparing for a Thursday night game against the Bears, it appears he'll get a temporary reprieve.
"Green Bay has another huge game [against the Bears] in 3 days so ... we understand where his head is, so I know he's focusing on that game," Morris told TMZ on Tuesday.
Apparently there is no concern that Rodgers might skirt his end of the deal, however. Morris told TMZ: "Aaron might be one of the classiest guys we know."
Rodgers grew up a 49ers fan in Chico and, while at Cal, he wore a Joe Montana T-shirt under his jersey.
"I never had any type of revenge or get-back feelings toward them," Rodgers said in a conference call Wednesday
