Green Bay Packers rookie quarterback Sean Clifford received a signed jersey from the QB who called Lambeau Field home the past 18 seasons.
Clifford, who has Aaron Rodgers’ former locker, posted a photo of the signed jersey from Rodgers while thanking the four-time MVP for the “housewarming gift.”
In the frame are two pictures of Rodgers from his playing days in Green Bay.
“Sean – Welcome to GB! Enjoy that great city and my locker!” Rodgers wrote on the signed jersey.
The jersey gift was part of the NFLPA’s Rookie Premiere event during which rookies were sent videos from NFL legends as they prepare for their first season.
Clifford was selected by the Packers in the fifth round of the 2023 NFL Draft after five seasons at Penn State.
Clifford left Happy Valley as the program’s all-time leader in wins as a starting quarterback (32), passing yards (10,661) and passing touchdowns (86).
“I’m just happy for him. He’s kinda seen it all in his Penn State career,” Nittany Lions head coach James Franklin said of Clifford after a Rose Bowl win over Utah, according to on3.

“And at Penn State it’s important — not how we just do it on the football field — but in the classroom and in the community. And he’s done it with utmost class the entire time. That’s what college football is about, that’s what Penn State’s about.”
Clifford will be competing for the backup job behind Jordan Love, who takes over under center after Green Bay sent Rodgers to the New York Jets in April.
Love spent his first three NFL seasons backing up Rodgers, appearing in 10 games.
