Rodgers and Nelson receive ESPY Award

Posted: Updated:

Two Green Bay Packers were honored at the ESPY's Wednesday night.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was named the NFL's best player.

Rodgers completed over 65 percent of his passes for 4,428 yards last season. He also lead the league with 40 touchdowns through the air and only had seven interceptions. 

Wide Receiver Jordy Nelson was named the Comeback Athlete of the Year for all sports. Last year, Nelson finished first in receiving touchdowns with 14, while hauling-in 97 catches for over 1,250 yards.

The stellar season comes after Nelson suffered a season-ending knee injury in 2015.
