Itís no surprise that 77% of our readers, among 7,272 votes cast, believe Aaron Rodgers is the best player in the NFL.

Maybe that figure is a little low, considering Packers fans predominantly make up the PackersNews.com voting contingent.

Among other vote-getters:

*Vikings running back Adrian Peterson received 16% of the vote, or roughly 1,164 votes.

*Broncos QB Peyton Manning got 2% of the vote, or about 144 votes.

*Patriots QB Tom Brady and Lions receiver Calvin Johnson each received 1% of the vote, or around 72 votes apiece.

Rodgers, who was ranked as the sixth-best player in the league by the NFL Network last month, received around 5,599 votes in our poll.

Make your voice heard in our current poll, which asks which Packers unrestricted free agent following the 2013 season most needs to be re-signed by the team: Jermichael Finley, James Jones, Sam Shields, Evan Dietrich-Smith or B.J. Raji.
