Although the tragedy in Manchester happened an ocean away, the idea of a bombing at a major entertainment event hits home in Green Bay due to the Packers and legendary Lambeau Field.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was asked about the tragedy Tuesday at Organized Team Activities, and whether or not he has concerns as a player.

"Our thoughts and our prayers are obviously with those people in Manchester," said Rodgers. "It's a terrible thing to see. You know it's always something you know could happen, you trust the security of the facility that you play in, but there's some crazy people out there in the world."

Rodgers added that it's important for spectators to be vigilant along with security.

"I don't understand it, I don't think any sane person understands how you can go through with an act like that, but there's people that want to harm other people all the time," Rodgers said.

Rodgers reminded fans of the "If you see something, say something" idea.
