GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers is making a return to "Jeopardy!" This time, however, the Green Bay Packers quarterback will be the host instead of a contestant.

He revealed Tuesday that he has been asked to be a guest host for an episode of his favorite game show -- one he appeared on in celebrity edition of the show in 2015.

Rodgers, who is preparing for Saturday's NFC divisional playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams, first mentioned it during his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show.

He later apologized for letting the news out.

A representative from "Jeopardy!'' declined to comment and said no announcement has been made about future guest hosts.

"I may have jumped the gun a little bit, so I apologize to 'Jeopardy!' if they wanted to announce it," Rodgers said. "I just got so excited on the show earlier. It just went down the last couple of days, us figuring it out. It is very exciting. It's for the offseason. We'll be even more excited when that opportunity gets a little closer, but, man, the show has been so special to me over the years.
