Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers tied the franchise record for career touchdown passes against the Baltimore Ravens when he hit Marquez Valdes-Scantling on an 11-yard scoring play early in the fourth quarter. That gave him 442 regular-season touchdown passes as a Packer, tying him with Hall of Famer Brett Favre.
Here is a look at the 44 players who have caught a touchdown pass from Rodgers during the regular season since he joined the Packers in 2005. How many of them do you remember and can you name? Statistics are accurate through the December 19, 2021, game in Baltimore.
- Davante Adams 65
In the win over the Ravens, Adams tied Jordy Nelson for the most touchdown catches from Rodgers in his career.
For the record, Adams’ first touchdown catch from Rodgers came on October 2, 2014, in a 42-10 win over the Vikings. The 11-yard scoring pass gave Green Bay a 21-0 lead at the time.
Adams now has 70 touchdown catches in his career with 65 of them coming from Rodgers and the remaining five coming from Brett Hundley.
- Jordy Nelson 65
Nelson was Rodgers’ favorite and most reliable target for most of his career in Green Bay. His first touchdown catch from Rodgers came in Week 2 of 2008 on a 29-yard play during a 48-25 win in Detroit.
His last scoring grab from Rodgers came in the Packers 35-31 win in Dallas during Week 5 of 2017 from 10 yards out.
Nelson also caught Rodgers’ longest scoring pass, a 93-yard bomb in 2011 against the Rams.
- Randall Cobb 44
Cobb has had two tours of duty with the Packers and he is still one of Rodgers’ most trusted targets.
Cobb’s first touchdown catch came in his first NFL game, a 42-34 nationally televised contest against the Saints when he caught a 32-yard pass from Rodgers in the first quarter. He also had a 108-yard kickoff return for a score in that game.
This season, Cobb caught five touchdown passes before getting injured. His most recent came in the Packers 36-28 win over the Rams from seven yards out.
- James Jones 41
Jones also had two tours of duty with the Packers, first from 2007-2013 and then again in 2015 when he caught eight touchdown passes.
Jones’ first from Rodgers came in Rodgers’ second start, a 48-25 win over the Lions in Detroit and it gave the Packers an early 7-0 lead.
His final touchdown grab from A-Rod came against his former Raiders teammates as the Pack downed Oakland 30-20 on the road from 30 yards out.
- Greg Jennings 38
Jennings started his Packers career with Favre under center and flourished with both Favre and Rodgers.
His first touchdown catch from Rodgers came in 2007 in a game that Rodgers came on in relief of Favre, a 37-27 loss to the Cowboys. It was Rodgers’ first NFL touchdown pass.
The final TD catch Jennings had with Rodgers came in 2012 when he caught two scoring passes from Rodgers in the Packers 37-34 loss to the Vikings in Minnesota in the season finale.
- Donald Driver 22
Driver is still the Packers all-time leading receiver with 743 receptions. He spent his first eight NFL seasons with Favre as his starting quarterback but was still a critical part of the offense when Rodgers became the starter in 2008.
His first touchdown catch with Rodgers came in Week 2 of 2008, a two-yard toss in the Packers 48-25 win over the Lions that made the score 14-0 Packers in the second quarter.
His final touchdown with Rodgers was also the last of his illustrious career, a four-yard completion during week 8 of the 2012 season during the Packers 24-15 win over the Jaguars.
- Jermichael Finley 19
Finley is the highest rated tight end on this list and he would almost certainly be much higher had his career not been tragically cut short by injuries.
Finley’s rookie season was Rodgers’ first year as the starter (2008). He caught his first touchdown pass in Week 17 in the Packers 31-21 win over the Lions at Lambeau Field.
His final scoring catch came in Week 7 of the 2013 campaign when he caught a 10-yard pass from Rodgers to give Green Bay a 7-0 lead in an eventual 31-13 win over the Cleveland Browns.
- Robert Tonyan 15
Tonyan started his career as a backup and special teams player but by 2020 had become the Packers primary receiving tight end.
His first touchdown catch was a dramatic 54-yard bomb from Rodgers during the Packers 27-24 loss to the Seahawks in 2018.
Tonyan’s most recent touchdown came in Week 7 this season when he caught a 20-yard pass from Rodgers to give the Pack a 21-7 lead in a game they won 24-10.
Tonyan is out for the rest of the season and is presently unsigned for 2022.
- Marquez Valdes-Scantling 13
The speedy Valdes-Scantling is the Packers most dangerous deep threat and eight of his 13 touchdown catches from Rodgers have been 40 yards or more.
His first came Week 5 of the 2018 season in the Packers 31-23 loss in Detroit while his most recent tied the record early in the fourth quarter against the Ravens this past Sunday.
- Richard Rodgers 13
Rodgers was a reliable tight end for the Packers and the Rodgers-to-Rodgers combination had some big moments during Richard’s tenure in Green Bay.
The most famous touchdown Rodgers caught was on a Hail Mary on the final play of the Packers improbable 27-23 win over the Lions. The pass covered 61 yards and gave the Pack a win on the final play of the game.
Rodgers’ first touchdown catch was a one-yard grab in Week 12 of the 2014 season while his last with the Pack was a 24-yard catch in Week 15 of the 2017 campaign when he caught a 24-yarder against the Carolina Panthers in an eventual 31-24 loss.
- Aaron Jones 12
While Jones has a lot more rushing touchdowns than receiving scores, he has caught 12 touchdown passes from A-Rod. His first came in his second season, Week 11 in 2018 season in a 27-24 loss to the Seahawks.
Jones had three touchdown catches from Rodgers in the Packers 35-17 win over the Lions in Week 2 this season and added another catch this past week from nine yards out as the Packers edged the Ravens 31-30.
- Allen Lazard 9
Lazard has worked his way up from undrafted free agent to steady contributor. Lazard had his breakout game in Week 6 of the 2019 season when he caught a 35-yard scoring pass from Rodgers in the Pack’s 23-22 comeback when over the Lions.
His most recent touchdown catch from Rodgers came in Week 14 of this season when he caught a 2-yard pass from Rodgers in the Packers 45-30 win over the Bears.

- John Kuhn 7
Fullback John Kuhn was one of the more popular players on the team and he provided Rodgers with good blocking and a reliable check-down receiver. His first scoring pass came from one-yard out during the Packers 27-17 win over the Seahawks in Week 6 of 2008. His final TD catch from Rodgers was a nine-yard play in Week 10 of the 2011 season when the Pack crushed the Vikings 45-7 at Lambeau Field.
- Eddie Lacy 6
The big back surprised people with his moves and could catch passes.
