Aaron Rodgers inks contract extension with Green Bay Packers

It's the richest contract in NFL history.
Publish date:

Aaron Rodgers said this summer that he'd love to spend his entire career with the Green Bay Packers (shocking, we know), and it appears that he'll do just that. 

According to multiple reports, Rodgers has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Packers that will keep him wearing a cheesehead through 2023. The first to report the news was James Jones, the wide receiver who used to catch passes from Rodgers but now works as an analyst for NFL Network. 

Jones says it's a $134 million deal with $57.5 million guaranteed. 

Bad time for the "a guy walks into A-Barr" joke?

Additionally, ESPN's Adam Schefter says Rodgers will get $67 million of it deposited into his bank account by the end of this year, and more than $80 million in his pocket before St. Patrick's Day next year. 

Add the $134 million to the nearly $40 million he's due to make the next two seasons and Rodgers is staring down a potential of about $174 million through 2023. 

It's a good gig if you can get it, except for the whole living in Green Bay thing.
