Aaron Rodgers has signed an extension with the Green Bay Packers, general manager Brian Gutekunst announced Wednesday. The record-breaking four-year, $134 million extension could be worth up to $180 million in total money, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. | espn.com
Aaron Rodgers made some serious bank on Wednesday, inking a four-year contract extension with the Packers worth $134 million with $102.5 million guaranteed. He became the highest-paid player in the NFL -- again. Of course, Rodgers deserves it. The two-time MVP is one of the most accurate passers in NFL history, notching a 65.1 completion percentage and 38,502 yards in his career. Rodgers is 35, so with Tom Brady playing into his 40s and Drew Brees potentially not being far behind, Rodgers could have quite a few years left under center for Green Bay. After missing most of last season with a broken collarbone, Rodgers is looking to get the Packers back on track after the team stumbled to a 7-9 finish without its star quarterback. | cbssports.com
