Aaron Rodgers, Packers agree to four-year deal as QB becomes highest-paid player in NFL history – CBSSports.com

Aaron Rodgers will be back with the Green Bay Packers in 2022 — and potentially beyond. The reigning NFL MVP agreed to a four-year, $200 million extension with the Packers that will make him the highest-paid player in NFL history with a $50 million average annual salary, CBS Sports NFL Insiders Jason La Canfora and Jonathan Jones confirmed.Rodgers will receive $153 million guaranteed as part of the extension, NFL Network reported, creating significant amounts of salary cap space available for the Packers (approximately $21 million). Rodgers considered retirement and potentially a trade to the Denver Broncos or another team as other options, but this commitment to the Packers suggests the team’s all-time passing touchdowns leader will finish his career in Green Bay. Rodgers posted on social media that while he will be back with the Packers, the reported terms of his deal are inaccurate. Hey everyone, just wanted to clear some things up; YES I will be playing with the @packers next year, however, reports about me signing a contract are inaccurate, as are the supposed terms of the contract I “signed”. I’m very excited to be back
