The Aaron Rodgers era in Green Bay is officially over, as he was traded to the New York Jets earlier this week for a major haul. It finally brought a conclusion to the lengthy drama between the two sides of where he would play next season, and what appropriate compensation that the Packers could receive in return. 

Rodgers himself, who made no secret about the fact that he wanted to move on from Green Bay, took to social media to send a message to Packers fans and to express his gratitude to everyone who had supported him over the years. 

"I’m not sure it’s possible to fully express the gratitude that I have to the @packers , our incredible fans, the state of Wisconsin, the thousands of players that I crossed paths with, the incredible men and women who work for the organization, and the amazing people who I got to meet along the way, in one post with 10 pictures, but I hope you read this and feel my heart and soul, filled with love, joy, and peace about my time in green and gold," he began.

"To the fans, THANK YOU, you made every run out of the tunnel special, every home game magical, and it was my honor to be your QB," he wrote.

He then sent a special shoutout to his now-former teammates: 

"To my teammates, I love you all, and am thankful for the moments on and off the field that brought us close. I played with legends, I played with friends; thanks for believing in me and having my back always," he said.

And finally, a parting message for the fans: 

"This is not the end for us, I will see you again Green Bay, you’ll always have my heart," he wrote.
