Aaron Rodgers won his fourth MVP award at the NFL Honors on Thursday evening. As a result, Rodgers only trails Peyton Manning who has won the honor five times. Nonetheless, the speech he delivered was one of the main highlights of the evening.

The MVP award for the 2021 NFL season went to Aaron Rodgers. He received the greatest number of votes 39, followed by Brady 10 and Cooper Kupp with the remaining one vote. However, the speech he delivered was exceedingly good. In his speech, Rodgers thanked Manning for inspiring him, he thanked the Packers’ front office, his teammates, and his friends.

In the end, he dedicated his award to Ted Thompson and Maura Mandt, who passed away in the last couple of years. However, he forgot to thank the most important person in his life, his fiancé Shailene Woodley.

According to ELLE, “They have a different, non-traditional relationship. Shailene and Aaron are still together. It’s not odd they don’t post about each other on their birthdays in that sense, and are very private about things.” While that may be the case. Nevertheless, keeping things private and not mentioning your fiancé after winning one of the most prestigious awards is quite different.
