According to NFL Network, Rodgers has agreed to four-year, $134 million contract extension which includes more than $100 million guaranteed.

NFL Network's James Jones is reporting that Rodgers will see incentives each year, and $100 million dollars is guaranteed.

Now, Aaron Rodgers can do what he promised he would: Focus on his legacy and finishing his career with the Green Bay Packers.

Rodgers is healthy again after being limited to seven games previous year because of a right collarbone injury.


Arguably, the superstar is the best player in the league, leaving the Packers to pay him well to stay, hoping for another ring. Rodgers will receive $67 million by the end of 2018, and over $80 million by March.

Rodgers saw the Ryan deal, and used it in his favor while in negotiations with the Packers.

After news of the new agreement, Rodgers posted a message on Instagram in which he said he was "looking forward to making some more memorable moments this year and for years to come".

The Packers traded Brett Hundley, their backup quarterback, to the Seahawks on Wednesday morning.


The best quarterback in the National Football League is getting paid accordingly. Green Bay flopped without him.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the final deal will be worth $176 million to $180 million. He will turn 40 in December of that year.

Of course, knowing how special a player Rodgers is, the Packers also likely knew they had no choice not to do it. Rodgers is a six-time Pro-Bowler and two-time First-Team All-Pro. He now has the best passer rating (103.8) and TD-to-INT ratio (4.01:1) in league history.
