GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he was ``shocked'' when his friend Ryan Braun admitted he violated baseball's rules against using performance-enhancing substances.
Rodgers says the Milwaukee Brewers slugger ``looked me in the eye'' and it ``didn't feel great being lied to like that.'' He says he's disappointed.
Braun has accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension. He and Rodgers are friends and co-own a Milwaukee restaurant. Rodgers defended Braun on Twitter last year, saying he would bet his salary that his friend was clean.
On Thursday at training camp, Rodgers says he was simply ``backing up a friend.''
