"To my teammates, past and current, you are the icing on the beautiful cake we call our job; football," he wrote. "The friendships that we have will transcend our collective time in this game and I am so thankful for the role that each of you have played in making my life that much better. I love you guys, and cherish the memories we’ve made."

Woodley, 30, has publicly come to Rodgers' defense multiple times in the past year over criticism regarding his decision not to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and slammed tabloid reports she said attempted to "disparage" the reigning NFL Most Valuable Player.
