Travis Kelce mocked Aaron Rodgers' new moniker for the Kansas City Chiefs tight end after the injured New York Jets quarterback referred to him as "Mr. Pfizer" on ESPN's "The Pat McAfee Show."
"I thought it was really decent," Kelce, 34, told reporters on Friday, referring to his current mustache.
"With my mustache, I resemble someone dubbed Mr. Pfizer." Who knew I'd be having vax battles with Aaron Rodgers? Mr. Pfizer versus the Johnson and Johnson clan over there."
The Jets are owned by Robert Wood "Woody" and Christopher Johnson, members of the Johnson & Johnson founding family, whose goods include pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
Kelce, who appeared in a Pfizer commercial pushing the Covid-19 vaccination, stated that while lobbying for the vaccine, he was "comfortable" with the term.
Rodgers was asked by McAfee after last week's Sunday Night Football game between the Chiefs and the Jets about the 23-20 loss and Taylor Swift's attendance at MetLife Stadium.
"There's some kind of moral win out there that we hung with the champs and that our defense performed well,"
Rodgers said McAfee after tearing his Achilles tendon in his first game with his new team last month after 18 seasons with the Green Bay Packers.
"'Mr. Pfizer,' we shut him down, and Pat (Mahomes) didn't have a crazy game." He didn't have a spectacular impact game. Obviously, he got some yards and everything, but I thought for the most part, we played really tough defense and played effectively the rest of the way.
