After 18 years, quarterback Aaron Rodgers' long journey with the Green Bay Packers has officially concluded. The news of Rodgers becoming a New York Jet quarterback has left Packer fans heartbroken, bidding their farewell to the iconic player. Following the news of Rodgers' trade to the Jets, popular Green Bay artist Beau Thomas stripped down the 2021 Rodgers mural that he had created. Fans watched the time-lapse video, capturing the final moments of the artwork as Thomas painted over the colorful mural with black paint. The thoughtful tribute initially highlighted Rodgers wearing a golden crown, with the words "King of the North" written on the side, and the Boyz II Men's "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday" playing in the background. The artwork was an expression of gratitude and a celebration of Rodgers' dazzling career with the Packers. As Aaron Rodgers departs, he pens an emotional goodbye post, expressing his gratitude and love for the Packers organization and its fans. Despite the promises from the New York Jets for his future career, Rodgers acknowledges that he will forever cherish the memories and moments he shared with the Packers. The post, which carried a throwback photo of him with his jersey, surfaced at the end of his farewell message, expressing his inability to express himself fully. "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 wrote. "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." Drafted at a young age of 21, Rodgers has become an integral part of the Packers organization. He did not miss mentioning any of the individuals involved in making his journey remarkable, from his teammates and fans to the guys in the equipment room. His time with the organization has given him a level of success and recognition that will be challenging for any player to match. As the New York Jets introduced their new quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, on Wednesday, the team continues to hope for a Super Bowl win, driven by Rodgers' exceptional performance. For Packer fans, however, a new chapter has begun, and it will be a long and emotional goodbye to their beloved King of the North.
