Aaron Rodgers        

Starting Quarterback, Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers was born December 2, 1983 in Chico, California and is the starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the NFL. Rodgers was drafted in the first round (24th overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers played college football for the California Golden Bears, where he set several school records.

With Rodgers making his debut as a starter, the Packers beat the Minnesota Vikings 24–19 at Lambeau Field. This marked the first time since 1992 that a quarterback other than Favre started a regular season game for the Packers. Rodgers ended the game with 178 yards passing and 2 touchdowns (1 passing/1 rushing). In just his second NFL start the following week, Rodgers was voted the FedEx Air award winner after passing for 328 yards and three touchdowns in a win against the Detroit Lions. During the fourth week of the season, Rodgers streak of 157 consecutive pass attempts without an interception ended when he was intercepted by Derrick Brooks of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The streak was the third longest in franchise history behind Bart Starr (294) and Brett Favre (163). Rodgers suffered a severe shoulder sprain in the game but continued to start and played well in a win against the Seattle Seahawks two weeks later which to many proved his toughness. Despite early successes, Rodgers had been unable to win a close game during the season despite seven opportunities to do so. On Oct 31, 2008, Rodgers signed a six year, $65 million contract extension through the 2014 season.
