Aaron Rodgers might accidentally be the best running back on Madden

Madden 17 is out and it may have unearthed something that everyone else has simply overlooked in modern football.

Is Aaron Rodgers actually a better running back than he is a quarterback? Now, you may say that this is an incredibly dumb  statement - and you would be right to say that - but just hear me out here for a second.

According to the popular simulation, the Green Bay Packers quarterback might actually be impossible to bring down when is running with the ball out of the pocket. Scroll down to watch.

Check out the first clip in this compilation and look on in wonder at how many defenders the 32-year-old is able to avoid. 

They are some truly incredible scenes. Not many running backs in the league could burst his way out of a three-tackler pile but Rodgers seems to have inherited the powers that Marshawn Lynch gave up when he left the league.

That is a 55-yard touchdown run, breaking the spirits of about nine defenders. 

Maybe the developers at EA Sports just gave Beast Mode's stats to Rodgers in a turn of events that nobody saw coming? Probably not but who knows.

After Rodgers ran in a score against the Jacksonville Jaguars at the weekend, maybe he has longer runs planned and Madden 17 is just foretelling the future.
