Schefter joined the "NFL Live" crew on Monday afternoon and proceeded to read the trade details out loud from his phone, which led to some amazing reactions from all the analysts.
This deal puts an end to an almost two-year saga that began with Rodgers wanting out of Green Bay in April 2021 and ended with the 39-year-old signal caller taking a darkness retreat to solidify his decision.
But now, Rodgers is officially moving on and setting up camp in East Rutherford, N.J., at MetLife Stadium.
Once the news broke, fans -- and rival team supporters -- took to social media to give their thoughts on the blockbuster move:
Even a few of Rodgers' new teammates took to Twitter and shared their thoughts on the Rodgers deal finally being done. Some of them even changed their Twitter profile pics to Rodgers in college.
Rodgers' time with the Packers has now come to an end after 18 years. He threw for 59,055 yards, 475 total touchdowns and 105 interceptions during his 18 seasons with Green Bay.
The team will now move full steam ahead with former first-round pick Jordan Love.

Since entering the league in 2020, the 24-year-old backup quarterback has played extremely limited snaps in his career.
