Packers Calendar: Aaron Rodgers Up for an ESPY Award

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is nominated for an ESPY Award in the Best NFL Player category, an award he won in both 2011 and 2012.

The ESPYs air on ESPN at 8 p.m. CT on Wednesday evening with a two-hour countdown show preceding the ceremony.

Fans determine the winners of the ESPY awards, which can be done online at the official website of the ESPYs at until the show starts.

The Best NFL Player category is heavy on NFC North players with division rivals such as Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson also up for the award. Other nominees include Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.

It has not been published whether Rodgers will be in attendance live at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles for Wednesday night's ceremony, but he has attended the event in previous years.

Rodgers is also invited to the annual American Century Championship golf tournament in Stateline, Nev. this week. Play doesn't begin until Friday, but practice rounds and a celeb-am tournament take place on Wednesday.

Linebacker A.J. Hawk and former Packers wide receiver and ESPN broadcaster Sterling Sharpe are also in the American Century Championship field.

Back in Wisconsin, the official youth football camps of the Green Bay Packers continue on Wednesday in their Green Bay and Glendale locations. More information is available at
