The lockout is providing NFL players plenty of time to pursue other interests. For Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, those other interests include starting a record label.

Rodgers has launched Suspended Sunrise Recordings, and the company is working with a band known as The Make, which has its roots in Rodgers’ hometown of Chico, California.

“This is the first step in the process,” Rodgers told “My business partner and I have been working for a couple of years trying to put this whole thing together. We’re excited about starting the process, to see what happens with this band. Obviously football is my first priority, music is my passion after that.”

Or maybe Rodgers is just looking for a tax write-off.

If he isn’t, there’s a good chance that he nevertheless has found one.
