Shailene Woodley is officially engaged to NFL superstar Aaron Rodgers — one of the greatest football players on the planets.

Woodley's dog — a big brown boy who appears to be some kind of shepard — loves his owner's new fiancé thanks to his strong arm and elite fetch-playing ability. And while speaking with Jimmy Fallon during an appearance on "The Tonight Show" on Monday, Woodley joked that her dog was more intent on making the relationship work than she was when they first started seeing one another.
"When I first met him, I think my dog like pulled me aside and was like, 'If you don't date this dude, I will disown you as my mother,'" Woodley said in jest. "'Because the three feet that I run with you when you throw a ball is nothing compared to the marathon I'm able to run with him.'"—Shailene Woodley (@PlanetShailene) April 15, 2020
The actress wasn't particularly tuned in to Rodgers' career — or football in general — prior to meeting her future beau in the midst of the pandemic. She has never been to a football game, she told Fallon, and never even watched one before the Green Bay Packers quarterback became her partner.
Still, Woodley has seen enough in the relatively short span of their relationship to know that Rodgers — the 2021 NFL MVP and a nine-time Pro Bowler — is "really just so good" at football.Shailene Woodley. Stefania D'Alessandro/Getty Images
"He can throw fast balls, he can throw slow balls," Woodley said, displaying her extensive knowledge of the game. "High balls, low balls."
There's still no word on when exactly the couple will tie the knot, though reports suggest that Woodley and Rodgers are eager to wed soon. But in the interim, Woodley's dog is undoubtedly thrilled to be playing the fetch of his dreams with one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history.

Seahawks answering calls from teams interested in Russell Wilson: report
Russell Wilson isn’t off the table for interested teams, and reports on Thursday say the Seattle Seahawks have placed some calls of their own.
ESPN’s Dianna Russini said during an appearance on the "Pat McAfee Show" on Thursday that Wilson "is not happy" and that while the Seahawks are not "shopping" the veteran quarterback, "calls made from other teams inquiring have been answered."

"It's a real thing where Russell Wilson is not happy there," Russini said. "His agent is gonna deny that they are demanding a trade ... (but) I know there's been calls made on both sides, going to Seattle and from Seattle to other teams."

Rumors of Wilson’s discontent were legitimized last month when he vocalized his own frustrations during a press conference with reporters.
"I love playing for the (Seahawks), I’ve loved it for years and lay it on the line every game and I’m dedicated to that," Wilson said at the time. "The reality is that I think it’s frustrating being there and watching the game and sitting there. Part of it, like any player, you never want to get hit. That's the reality of playing this position, ask any quarterback who wants to play this game. At the same time, it's part of the job."

Wilson’s agent Mark Rodgers said this week that while he hasn’t demanded a trade, he would be willing to play for the Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, Las Vegas Raiders, and New Orleans Saints.Paulina Dedaj is a Sports Reporter for Fox News and FOX Business. Follow her on Twitter @PaulinaDedaj.
