Aaron Rodgers has a new piece of hardware for his trophy case.
 
He won an ESPY Award for "Best Play" on Wednesday for his 61-yard Hail Mary pass to Richard Rodgers.
 
Remember that play? It gave the Packers that Week 13 win over the Detroit Lions.
Rodgers tweeted about the big award saying:
The Hail Mary beat out LeBron James' block in the NBA Finals, Kris Jenkins' buzzer-beater that helped Villanova win a national championship and a Michigan State punt block that resulted in a 27-23 win over Michigan.
