Aaron Rodgers is now a very rich man, and the Green Bay Packers star quarterback took to Instagram on Wednesday to express his gratitude to those who helped him down the path to earning what is being reported as the largest deal in NFL history.
It's been an amazing ride the last 13 years; excited to start year 14 knowing that my future is here, in Green Bay, for our 100th season. I've grown up in this place, and grown older and a little wiser along the way. Thank you to our incredible fan base for inspiring us players to be better year after year. Thank you to the Packers organization for standing by me time and time again and giving me the opportunity to lead this football team. And thank you to my teammates along the way, past and present who have impacted my life in so many positive ways, giving me friendships for life. Looking forward to making some more memorable moments this year, and for years to come....

The Packers reportedly gave Rodgers $33.5 million per year over four years to blow the top off the quarterback market. Matt Ryan signed a deal for $30 million per season earlier this offseason.
