GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Aaron Rodgers posted a reflection discussing his future on Instagram Wednesday afternoon. The post used the hashtag #packerforlife
The post says Rodgers has had an amazing 13 years with the Packers and is looking forward to starting year 14, "knowing that my future is here."
The post continues, "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."
Rodgers, who was drafted by the Packers in the first round (No. 24 overall) in 2005, ranks No. 1 in NFL history (min. 1,500 attempts) with a career passer rating of 103.8. He also ranks No. 1 in league history in career INT percentage (1.59) and TD/INT ratio (4.01).

He has posted six seasons (2009, 2011-12, 2014-16) with 500-plus passing attempts and eight or fewer INTs, the most in NFL history ahead of Patriots QB Tom Brady (four), Redskins QB Alex Smith (two) and nine QBs (one). Rodgers has been named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player by The Associated Press twice in his career (2011, 2014), one of only eight players in league history to win the award multiple times, and has been selected to the Pro Bowl in six of the last nine seasons (2009, 2011-12, 2014-16).
