Rodgers to Star in The Longest Yard Remake? You Can Bet on It

The Longest Yard is being remade, and although it’s yet another sad Hollywood remake, at least there’s betting on it.

Headlining entertainment betting markets is Tom Brady at +320, but our money is on Aaron Rodgers to spend some of his downtime filming.

Rodgers Throws Hollywood Pick

The 2023-24 NFL season was all but a wash for Rodgers, who didn’t make much of an impact with the New York Jets.

However, he could make an impact in Hollywood, and he wouldn’t be the first former Green Bay Packer to feature in a film.

Five Packers players made cameos in Pitch Perfect, including Clay Matthews, which was interesting to see, to say the least.

Our sportsbook has Rodgers on the second line of betting at +450 odds, and we think he’s trying to get his way into Hollywood.

His playing career is coming to an end, and he has more star appeal than Brady, who could be better off playing something different than The Longest Yard.

Of course, there could be multiple players featured, but Rodgers should be the favorite.

Edelman Could Play a Convict

There’s something about Julian Edelman that leads up to believe he can play a convict in The Longest Yard.

The former New England Patriot has some grit about him, and he could have some acting chops now that his playing career is over.

Sport betting markets have Edelman at +850 to feature in the credits, and we think he would make a great receiver for the prison team.

We’re not sure what he would be incarcerated for, but we hope to see him at the movies.

Crews a Natural Selection

Who doesn’t love a bit of Terry Crews? He’s fun to watch, and he could be the muscle actor for The Longest Yard.

Being able to play both a fun and scary character gives him an advantage over most people on the betting list, so take the betting online odds of +900 to star in the movie.

Crews has been in major hits, including White Chicks, The Expendables, and Adam Sandler’s 2005 remake of The Longest Yard, which gives him every chance of coming back.

He played Cheeseburger, and we would love to see him back in the role.

Big Gronkowski a Must

Getting +850 for Rob Gronkowski is a great price with movie odds, and we would love to see him on the screen.

He already does plenty of TV work with various agencies, and he has the perfect look for an NFL player-turned-convict.

The showrunners would miss a trick if he’s not cast, and we fear for the actor who has to tackle the former Patriots and Buccaneers tight end.

We can just imagine the close-up frame of Gronk getting the ball and steamrolling the opposition. It’s something they must include in the movie, so take the generous odds.
