NextImg:Sauce Gardner gifts Aaron Rodgers custom No. 8 chain: ‘Something special’

Diamonds are forever, and so is the Sauce Gardner-Aaron Rodgers bromance.

The Jets’ cornerback told reporters Friday that he got Rodgers “a surprise” gift, and it turns out that it was a green and white No. 8 necklace.

Gardner bequeathed the gift to Rodgers on Saturday, with the Jets’ social media team capturing the exchange.

“So you’re my jeweler’s favorite quarterback,” Gardner told Rodgers. “You know what I mean, Al the Jeweler. So he wanted to cook up something special for you. He brought the idea to me, I said I think it would be a good idea.”

Gardner clasped the chain around the neck of the Jets’ newest quarterback himself as Rodgers stood smiling with his arms crossed.

The superstar quarterback went out on the town with Gardner in the months leading up to camp, with the two spotted at a Knicks playoff game while also going out to dinner.

At that Knicks game, Gardner didn’t know who actress Jessica Alba was.

“When we were getting seated, [Rodgers] was just picking on me a little bit for being young,” Gardner said. “We were getting seated and he was like ‘we’re about to sit by,’ what’s her name? ‘We’re about to sit by Jessica Alba,’ and I’m just like ‘Oh, I don’t know who that is.’ And he just looked at me, he looked at me like I’m crazy.”

During OTAs, they even came up with a secret handshake, which mimed them smoking marijuana.

With training camp underway, they’re finally going up against each other in practices.

“I think he’ll like it,” Gardner said of the gift. “It’s probably not his style all the way, but I feel like it’s gonna be good since he’s in New York now.”
