Aaron Rodgers might not be a Green Bay Packers player anymore, but he had the perfect message for the newest member in the quarterback room.

Following Rodgers' trade to the New York Jets, Jordan Love was promoted to QB1 in Green Bay, opening the door for a new backup quarterback.

The Packers drafted Penn State's Sean Clifford in the fifth round, and the rookie is in pole position to win the No. 2 spot behind Love this season.

Fanatics released a video from the NFL Rookie Premiere of several rookies being given advice from legends.

Among them was Clifford, and he received some advice from a familiar face.

Clifford got to enjoy a personal video from Rodgers. While they haven't crossed paths in Green Bay, Rodgers made sure to welcome him to the team.

With the four-time MVP gone, Clifford has taken Rodgers' locker, which Rodgers joked about in the video.

"Welcome to Green Bay. How's my locker, by the way?" Rodgers said.

What an amazing line from Rodgers. The video didn't show anything else he said to Clifford, but each rookie received a jersey from their legend.

"I'll remember this for a long time, so thank you," said Clifford.

Rodgers' time in Green Bay as a player is over, but he will return one day. He will forever be a Green Bay Packers legend and nothing will change that. It was cool to see this moment as he welcomed the newest quarterback in Green Bay to the league.

As for Clifford, he has made an impact on the practice field already this offseason. He led an impressive two-minute drill earlier this week.

That will give him confidence moving forward. The Packers' backup QB job is available, and it's up to Clifford to show why he's ready for the role this summer.

Rodgers may now play for the Jets, but it's fun to see his message for the Packers' newest quarterback.
