Aaron Rodgers, who ‘put my salary on’ Ryan Braun being clean, probably regrets that now

Aaron Rodgers was so sure his buddy on the Milwaukee Brewers, Ryan Braun, didn't use performance-enhancing drugs, that he told a skeptical Twitter follower last February that he would put his money where his mouth was.
Well, Braun has been suspended by Major League Baseball for the rest of the season after dropping an appeal, and somewhere Todd Sutton is wondering how he can collect the Green Bay Packers quarterback's $4.5 million base salary for this year.
When Braun had a positive test for PEDs overturned on appeal, Rodgers publicly defended him then as well.
Might be a bit awkward the next time the two Wisconsin sports stars talk.
Pay up Aaron!!
