The reigning two-time MVP will become the highest-paid player in NFL history.
Aaron Rodgers left to stay. While he was at the center of all speculation regarding his future, the reigning two-time MVP is set to sign a four-year extension with the Green Bay Packers, various US media reports. Now 38 years old, the quarterback remains in his franchise, with which he started in 2005 and won the Super Bowl in 2011, the date of the last appearance of the Packers during the high mass of American football.
To manage to keep their “QB” star, the Packers have agreed to a huge financial effort. Thus, the four-time MVP (2011, 2014, 2020, 2021) signed a contract for $200 million over four years, of which $153 million is guaranteed. An amount that will allow him to be the highest paid NFL player in history.
Despite another top-flight season in 2021, Rodgers and the Packers were eliminated in the Division Finals by Jimmy Garoppolo’s San Francisco 49ers on the verge of the Conference Finals.
