Aaron Rodgers has responded to Jimmy Kimmel after the late-night host threatened legal action over the New York 

Jets quarterback's comments that appeared to imply Kimmel's name might be linked to the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. 

Kimmel angrily denied it, and his name is not mentioned 

Rodgers addressed Kimmel's remarks on the "Pat McAfee Show" 

he said he understands "how serious an allegation of pedophilia 

but denied his comments had gone that far 

I'm not stupid enough to accuse you of that with absolutely zero evidence
