Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are underway at training camp. This is a big year for the Packers, who are getting some Super Bowl hype (FOX analyst Tony Romo has named them the team to beat).

Rodgers, of course, is arguably the best quarterback in the NFL. He's sure to have a big-time 2018 season.

His first pass at training camp, though, could have gone better.

It was a pick-six.

"Aaron Rodgers’ first pass of camp intercepted by Kevin King, who goes up high to take the ball away on a fade route," Tom Silverstein tweeted.

It's practice, of course, so who cares. But it's still kind of funny. Rodgers, after all, has only thrown two career pick-sixes. Tom Brady, for instance, has thrown 13. Drew Brees has thrown 27. Brett Favre threw 31! Here was Rodgers' last one:

Rodgers is likely getting the pick-sixes out of the way in training camp so he can have a pick-six free 2018 season. That's what Packers fans are telling themselves, anyway.
