GREEN BAY -- He battles lions and bears each year, but now it looks like Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has moved on to sharks.

The two-time NFL MVP will be appearing as part of Discovery Channel's "Shark Week" next month, and shared a photo of him swimming (in extremely close quarters, might we add) with a scary-looking shark:

"This is me. This is a shark. This is on shark week in July. Check us out!" Rodgers said on Instagram, using the hashtag '#fearintofascination,' among others.

As long as he doesn't get his arm chomped off, Rodgers and the Packers have a lot to be excited about this year. #12 was recently ranked as the NFL's best player , and former QB Tony Romo says the green and gold should be the 'team to beat' this year in the NFC.
