Bio

Aaron Charles Rodgers was born in Chico, California on December 2, 1983. A quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, he is a one-time Super Bowl champion, one-time Super Bowl MVP, three-time Pro Bowler and was named as the 2011 Athlete of the Year by the Associated Press. Throughout his career, Rodgers has set various NFL records, including having best touchdown to interception ratio in history. He is also the only quarterback ever to have a career passer rating which exceeds 100.0.

Rodgers attended Pleasant Valley High School, where he excelled as a quarterback. After spending a year at Butte Community College, he was offered an athletic scholarship by the University of California, Berkeley and transferred, playing for the California Golden Bears in 2003 and 2004. In 2003, he set a school record for the lowest percentage of passes intercepted and in 2004, he led the team to a 10–1 regular season record and a top five ranking.

Despite a wide expectation that he would be selected first in the 2005 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers, Rodgers was eventually selected 24th overall by the Green Bay Packers. Having served as a backup quarterback for Brett Favre during his first three NFL seasons, Rodgers became the Packers' starting quarterback from the 2008 season onwards.

The greatest success of Rodgers' career came in the 2010 season, as he led the Packers to Super Bowl XLV, where they defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25. Over the course of the game, Rodgers completed 24 of his 39 passes, for 304 yards and three touchdowns and was subsequently named as the Super Bowl MVP and the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Year.

In 2011, he enjoyed one of the most efficient passing seasons ever recorded by an NFL quarterback, ending the season with 4,643 passing yards, recording 45 touchdown passes, and only 6 interceptions. His passer rating for the season, 122.5, is currently the highest passer rating ever recorded over a single season. The Associated Press, Pro Football Writers Association and Sporting News all voted him the NFL MVP. However, despite being favourites to win the Super Bowl again, the team were beaten in their first playoff game by the New York Giants. In April 2013, Rodgers signed a new contract with the Packers, making him the best-paid NFL player ever.
