NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers left the football field for a night to attend the 2023 Tony Awards -- and his appearance at Broadway's biggest night quickly went viral. 

Rodgers and his New York Jets teammate, C.J. Uzomah, were spotted posing on the red carpet at the 76th annual event held at United Palace in New York. 

The football star -- who was recently transferred to the Jets and has been spotted attending events such as Taylor Swift's Eras Tour -- cleaned up nice for the occasion in a metallic brown suit.
