Just two days after Odell Beckham agreed to a historic, $95 million extension with the New York Giants, another of the NFL's biggest stars has inked a massive extension. Aaron Rodgers will be in Green Bay for the foreseeable future.
Wednesday afternoon, Rodgers' former teammate, James Jones, who now works as an analyst for NFL Network, broke the news: the Packers have locked up the star quarterback for four more years.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal will be worth as much as $180 million—just to give you an idea of how much more QBs earn than players at other positions.
Rodgers is now the league's highest-paid player.
Rodgers earned $12.6 million in 2017.
The No. 24 pick in the 2005 draft, Rodgers has won MVP twice (2011 and 2014) and has qualified for six Pro Bowls. He was the Super Bowl MVP in the 2010-11 season.
