Report: Rodgers signs 4-year deal with Packers, highest paid in NFL history

TUESDAY 3/8/2022 10:37 a.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – Aaron Rodgers is now the highest-paid player in NFL history, as he and the Packers reportedly came to terms on a new contract.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers agreed to a four-year $200 million deal. This deal makes him the highest-paid player in NFL history.

He will reportedly get $153 million guaranteed. The annual average value is $50 million. His cap number reportedly goes down.

Rodgers is coming off of back-to-back MVP seasons with the Packers. Rapoport says that Rodgers considered the Denver Broncos and retirement but ultimately decided to stay with the team.

Back in late February, Rodgers apparently told Pat McAfee that the rumors that he wanted to be the highest-paid player by a wide margin were ‘categorically false’. The reports at the time suggested that Rodgers wanted $50 million per year.

Rapoport also mentioned that the Packers are now expected to franchise tag Davante Adams.

Even though Rapoport said that the contract is four years and $200 million, Pat McAfee says that is not accurate. McAfee said that Rodgers reached out to him personally to say he will be returning to the Packers.
