Green Bay Keeps Aaron Rodgers: $153 Million Guaranteed
NFL Offseason - Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Green Bay Packers and reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers have agreed to terms on a four-year, $200-million deal featuring $153 million guaranteed. Rodgers goes into his age-39 season as the highest-paid player in NFL history. Denver Broncos fans will now have to look elsewhere. Perhaps they are interested in a slightly used Jordan Love?
What will Rodgers' value be going forward. This is where we used to quote all kinds of stats about the lack of great seasons by quarterbacks in their late thirties and early forties, but Tom Brady sort of threw that idea out the window. Perhaps Rodgers will fall off a cliff. Perhaps he will be great until he decides to retire.
