Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been named part owner of the Milwaukee Bucks. 

Rodgers was at the game with his girlfriend Danica Patrick and fellow owner Wes Edens. The Bucks made the announcement during the first round playoff game between the Bucks and the Boston Celtics. 

The team tweeted out welcoming the quarterback to the team. 

"I have proudly called Wisconsin my home for the past 13 years, and I am thankful for the friendships and the opportunities I have been given to live and play here,” said Rodgers in a news release. 

Rodgers is the only NFL player to be a limited partner of an NBA team. 

“Aaron is a winner, a Wisconsin icon, and we are honored to welcome him to our partnership group of the Milwaukee Bucks,” said Bucks co-owners Wes Edens, Marc Lasry, Jamie Dinan and Mike Fascitelli in a news release. “With our team in the playoffs and our new world-class arena opening this fall, it’s an exciting time for this city and the Bucks. We are thrilled for Aaron to be with us.”
