    Aaron Rodgers - Jessica Szohr

    Aaron Rodgers cemented himself as an NFL player on the rise with his MVP-winning performance in Super Bowl XLV. But he may have also thrust himself into the cultural firmament if the gossip is true about his newest lady love.

    The Green Bay Packers quarterback is reportedly dating Gossip Girls' Jessica Szohr, according to E! Online.

    Though Szohr, 25, dodged questions about her relationship with the 27-year-old Rodgers - with whom she's been spotted having dinner in Philadelphia and catching a basketball game in Milwaukee - she had a legit reason for her Green Bay fever when she was asked about her dating life at the DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl.

    "I'm rooting for the Packers because I'm from Green Bay!," she said.
