Shortly after Odell Beckham Jr. became the highest paid WR in NFL history, Aaron Rodgers signed an extension with the Green Bay Packers making it the largest contract in NFL history. According to ESPN, the initial deal is for $134 million USD over the course of 4 years and is potentially worth $180 million USD in total. Rodgers’s extension includes almost $103 million USD in guaranteed money with a yearly average of $33.5 million USD. The contact’s biggest value is noted to be between $176 and $180 million USD based on performance incentives such Rodgers finishing in the top three of the quarterback rating charts and the Green Bay Packers making the playoffs.

Take a look Aaron Rodgers’ response to the deal below in addition to how ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith feels about it as well.

It’s been an amazing ride the last 13 years; excited to start year 14 knowing that my future is here, in Green Bay, for our 100th season. I’ve grown up in this place, and grown older and a little wiser along the way. Thank you to our incredible fan base for inspiring us players to be better year after year. Thank you to the Packers organization for standing by me time and time again and giving me the opportunity to lead this football team. And thank you to my teammates along the way, past and present who have impacted my life in so many positive ways, giving me friendships for life. Looking forward to making some more memorable moments this year, and for years to come…. #packers100thseason #packersfamily #packerforlife #midrange
