He was thanking everyone who had a special place during his journey last season, including Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur, offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, and actress Shailene Woodley.
But while the text can simply be a message of thanksgiving, the last photo he included brought out limitless theories from football fans and experts.
The space is where Rodgers often stands up during the National Anthem.
Many people speculated that he was subtly saying that he won’t be back in Green Bay.
But for now, the picture means nothing, as Rodgers himself said during his recent interview on The Pat McAfee Show.
Aaron Rodgers says he posted this photo last night because it's one of his favorite photos from the 2021 season. Says he appreciated Davante and Randall "holding a spot for me" when he missed the Chiefs game due to COVID.

Pro Football Focus reporter Ari Meirov merely repeated what Rodgers said about the picture.
For the four-time NFL MVP, it was one of his favorite photos in 2021 because he appreciated the gesture of his teammates when they left his spot vacant when he was out due to COVID-19.
Rodgers also revealed, “When I got that photo, I cried.”
Why The Sudden Appreciation Post From Rodgers?
Rodgers felt the need to thank all the people who have made his 2021 special after undergoing a 12-day cleanse.
He claimed that he was very much inspired to pen that Instagram update because of what that retreat made him realize.
Therefore, it has nothing to say about his next move, be it retirement, a return to Green Bay, or to play elsewhere.
Everyone would have to wait a bit longer before he makes an official announcement.
