GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been named 2021 NFL Most Valuable Player by the Pro Football Writers of America.
In his 17th season, Rodgers threw for 4,115 yards and 37 touchdowns and led the league with a 111.9 passer rating. He threw only four interceptions.

Rodgers’ season ended last Saturday in the NFC Divisional Game loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
The PFWA chose L.A. Rams WR Cooper Kupp as Offensive Player of the Year.
Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt Defensive Player of the Year.
The PFWA is “the official voice of pro football writers” in the United States.
