Aaron Rodgers: Aaron Rodgers Says He Feels Good

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) said he "feels good" when asked about his status with training camp approaching at the end of July. Rodgers tore his Achilles on the first offensive series in Week 1 last fall and missed the rest of his first year in New York. However, he miraculously returned to practices late last season and said his surgically repaired Achilles has felt good throughout the offseason and during organized team activities a month ago. A healthy Rodgers should give Gang Green a realistic shot at the postseason given all the weapons they have on offense, but fantasy managers should temper expectations for a 40-year-old signal-caller coming off a major injury. If he stays healthy, Rodgers could easily finish as a top-15 fantasy QB, but relying on him as your QB1 is a risky proposition.

Aaron Rodgers Biography

Childhood and High School

Born on December 2, 1983 in Chico, California, Aaron Charles Rodgers also lived with his family in Ukiah, California and Beaverton, Oregon during his childhood before they returned to Chico. His father had played as an offensive lineman for the Chico State Wildcats in the 1970s. Rodgers played quarterback for Pleasant Valley High School in Chico where he racked up 4,421 passing yards and set multiple records. Rodgers graduated in 2002. He also excelled in baseball and basketball as a child.


After attending Butte Community College near Chico for a year, where he led the team to a 10-1 record, Rodgers transferred to the University of California at Berkeley on an athletic scholarship. He played for the team during 2003 and 2004 season and led the Golden Bears to a 7-3 record. He was doing well until being injured that year but still managed to set various records. He led the fourth-ranked team to the 2004 Holiday Bowl, but they lost that game. Rodgers went pro rather than completing his senior year. Rodgers' college career included some incredible highlights.

NFL Draft

At the NFL Combine, Rodgers completed a 34.5-inch vertical leap, and his 40 time was 4.71 seconds. During the 2005 NFL draft, Rodgers was the number 24 pick and was drafted as a backup rookie to Brett Favre with the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers' jersey number is 12. When Favre announced in 2008 that he was retiring as the Packers' quarterback, this paved the way for the position to be open to Rodgers. He has been starting quarterback since that time. In 2013, Rodgers became the football player with the highest salary in the history of the NFL with a 5-year, $110-million contract extension.

2015 NFL Season

Rodgers had led the Packers to a Super Bowl victory in 2011 and continued to excel throughout the years. During the 2015 to 2016 season he threw for 3,821 yards, managed 31 touchdowns, and threw only 8 interceptions. He completed 60.7 of his passes and averaged only 6.7 yards per pass attempt. He finished with a passer rating of 92.7. Although overall this was not considered a great year for Rodgers, he still led the team to the NFC playoffs. They made it to the divisional round before being defeated by the Arizona Cardinals. Rodgers played in the Pro Bowl and was ranked the sixth best player in the entire NFL. The 2015-2016 season was memorable for the quarterback, with certain plays making it especially so.

2016 NFL Season

The 2016 season marked Rodgers' 12th season for #12 with the Green Bay Packers. At that point he had played for the team for his entire career as he capably followed in the footsteps of Hall of Famer Brett Favre. In the most recent season, the Packers made it to playoffs for the 8th consecutive season but lost to the Super Bowl-bound Atlanta Falcons. Rodgers played somewhat inconsistently this season, doing really well in some games and not as well in other games. He ended the season with 401 completions and 610 attempts. Rodgers played in his third consecutive Pro Bowl in 2016. His 2016-2017 season with the Packers included some notable and memorable plays.

Personal Life

Rodgers lives in the suburbs of Green Bay and has another home in Del Mar, California. He is passionate about his Christian faith. December 12, 2012 (12/12/12) was known as Aaron Rodgers Day in Wisconsin. Rodgers' signature touchdown celebration move the Victory Belt is also known as the Championship Belt. He has dated actress Olivia Munn since 2014. He has two brothers, and Jordan was quarterback for Vanderbilt University and played for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Various celebrities like pop superstar singer Harry Styles of the group One Direction have been fans of Rodgers and the Packers.
