Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was already friends with Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. But Rodgers is thankful for the way Cutler has helped his younger brother Jordan get acclimated at Vanderbilt.
"He's a guy who has been great to my little brother," Rodgers said. "As a big brother, that's much appreciated the way he's made my little brother feel comfortable down there and helped him kind of get the lay of the land down there in Nashville.
"That's only helped to strengthen our friendship, and I pull for him 14 weeks out of the season."
Jordan Rodgers is a junior quarterback at Vanderbilt. He transferred there after helping Butte Junior College claim the 2008 national title with a 12-0 season.
He threw for 810 yards and 10 TDs.
Meanwhile, Rodgers said he's happy for Cutler's strong start to 2010.
"Jay being a friend of his, and knowing him for a few years now, it's nice to watch him have the kind of success he's had the first two games," Rodgers said. "You got to point to, definitely, some growth in him, and understanding the system that coach [Mike] Martz is trying to run. Obviously, it's working very well for him the first couple of weeks."
