Sorry, Tom Brady … Green Bay Packers star Allen Lazard is giving the G.O.A.T. title to Aaron Rodgers — telling TMZ Sports the QB is the best pigskin-thrower ever!
“The greatest of all time,” the 27-year-old said of his quarterback out at Super Bowl festivities last weekend. “Not might, no might. Drop the might. He’s the G.O.A.T.”
Of course, most consider Brady to be the best ever — dude has seven Super Bowl rings, played until he was 45, and owns just about every passing record ever — but Lazard told us he’s going with his signal-caller over anyone else.
“The best person to ever pick up a football and throw the ball,” he said. “I’ll leave it at that.”
Lazard might be a bit biased, he’s been catching passes from Rodgers since 2018 — and gushed over the QB’s pinpoint accuracy when we asked him about playing with the signal-caller.
As for their future together, though, it’s murky — Lazard is a free agent … and Rodgers is rumored to be a trade candidate this offseason.
Regardless, AL says he’ll always be Rodgers’ biggest supporter.
“Catching passes from him has, you know, it’s been a highlight of my life, my career, and everything,” Lazard said.
The wideout’s teammate, Aaron Jones, however, told us at the SB LVII festivities he doesn’t like the idea of Rodgers playing anywhere else, especially if it happens to be with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Rodgers is expected to make a decision on his football future in the coming days — as he’s submerged himself in a “darkness retreat” with the hopes of eventually being enlightened.
