Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. claimed Tuesday that New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers and ex-pro wrestler and former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura are among his preferred running mates.

The New York Times reported that Kennedy, 70, had disclosed to the outlet that Rodgers and Ventura were “at the top of his list” to join the 2024 ticket, while two sources told the paper the men had “welcomed” the candidate’s approaches.

The Kennedy campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Post.

Rodgers, 40, was traded to the Jets before the 2023 season after spending 18 seasons with the Green Bay Packers. However, he ruptured his left Achilles tendon just four plays into his New York tenure and missed the rest of the season.

The NFL star was an early endorser of Kennedy, pushing the hashtag “kennedy2024” on social media as far back as April of last year.

Just last month, Kennedy posted an image of the two hiking in an undisclosed location as Rodgers continues his recovery.

Rodgers has one year left on his two-year, $75 million, fully guaranteed contract, which he signed after the trade to the Jets.
