Aaron Charles Rodgers (born December 2, 1983 in Chico, California, U.S.) is the starting American football quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the NFL.

He played college football in California, starting at Butte Community College before transferring to Cal to play for the Golden Bears. The Packers chose him in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft with the 24th pick.

He spent a few years as Brett Favre's backup, and after Brett Favre's first retirement fiasco, was named the starter of the Green Bay Packers. He became the Packers' starting quarterback in 2008 after Favre left the Packers to play for the New York Jets. He led the team to a Super Bowl championship in 2010 and was named the game's MVP in Super Bowl XLV.

Rodgers is famous for his "championship belt celebration," which was used in commercials for State Farm as "a discount double check."

Rodgers's best statistical season was in 2011.
