Rodgers, Packers reach record deal

Adjust Comment Print

Rodgers still had two years remaining on his contract, meaning he is now under contract through 2023. We've been hearing about it all offseason and Aaron Rodgers' contract extension is reportedly done.

Reports of the Green Bay Packers quarterback's record-setting contract extension caused jaws to drop around the National Football League on Wednesday. It contains over $100 million in guarantees and sets other new records for average per year ($33.5 million) and signing bonus ($57.5 million). His deal beats out both the $94.5 million Matt Ryan was guaranteed at signing and the $84 million guaranteed to Kirk Cousins. Rodgers was scheduled to make a little over $20.5m this season and $21.1 million in 2019.

The two-time NFL MVP will receive $67 million by the end of 2018, and over $80 million by March, added Adam Schefter of ESPN. However, the six-time Pro Bowler wasn't the only Packer with money on his mind. However, the extension will keep him in Green Bay for many years to come and will likely see him finish his career in a Packers uniform.
