Packers, Aaron Rodgers Agree To Massive Contract Extension

Thursday, 30 Aug, 2018

The Green Bay Packers have raised the bar on quarterback contracts, agreeing to a huge four-year extension with star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. They are also reporting that Rodgers will net a $57.5 million signing bonus.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the final deal will be worth $176 million to $180 million. Ryan agreed to a five-year, $150 million extension with the Falcons in May.

Rodgers is the lone QB in National Football League history to throw 40-plus TD passes with seven or fewer INTs in a season, having done it twice in his career (45/6 in 2011, 40/7 in 2016). Schefter later reported that the deal includes $103m practically guaranteed and $67m due before the end of 2018.

"Like the last time, although it was large financial numbers, it was a deal that myself and the team was happy with", Rodgers said earlier this offseason.
