Packers give Aaron Rodgers 103 million guaranteed making him the highest paid in NFL History

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was upset with the coin flipToday, Green Bay Packers made Aaron Rodgers a very happy and rich man. The former Cal-Berkley gunslinger became the highest paid football player in the National Football League’s history. Just how much will Aaron Rodgers receive?

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport followed up by reporting that the deal is a four-year, $134 million extension. The deal will pay him $80 million by March.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the total deal will be worth $176-180 million, with $103 million “practically” guaranteed.

That is a ton of money folks.  Rodgers’ deal will set a new standard in the NFL. Will future quarterback free agents match or top his $100 million guaranteed? That will be the question you have to ask yourself.

If Rodgers, the top quarterback, got $100 million guaranteed, imagine what Defensive MVP Aaron Donald and Raiders pass rusher Khalil Mack, may ask?

If Mack or Donald can somehow land 85 million guaranteed the NFL will have a new bar set for their contracts.  Every NFL player should be smiling today after seeing Rodgers contract.
