QB - GB
The details of Aaron Rodgers' record-breaking contract have emerged this morning, according to Tom Pelissero.
Rodgers will be set to receive $42 million in 2022, $59.515 million in 2023, and $49.3 million in 2024. The first two of those years - $101.515 million - are fully guaranteed at signing. All of this makes the 38-year-old MVP the highest-paid quarterback in history.
Via Aaron Rodgers, the superstar QB will play for Green Bay in 2022 but debunks the report that he signed a four-year, $200 million contract with the team on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, news dropped surrounding the superstar QB that he had come to terms with the Packers on playing in 2022. Ian Rapaport tweeted that the team elected to sign Rodgers to a four-year, $200 million contract which Rodgers himself debunked in a tweet stating "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." It's unclear when he will make the contract talks official and public, but for now, Packers fans can rest easy knowing the MVP is back in Green Bay.
The Packers and Aaron Rodgers have agreed to a 4-year, $200 million deal.
The reigning MVP's new contract has $153 million guaranteed and his cap hit will decrease for Green Bay. He wanted to be the highest paid player in NFL history and now he is. He remains an elite fantasy QB, though depending on where Davante Adams ends up will also impact his value.
Denver is prepared to offer the ninth pick this year, their second round pick this year, and next year's first to Green Bay for Aaron Rodgers, according to Dale Lolley on Twitter.
Another day, another Aaron Rodgers rumor, though this is the first with specific picks outlined. While Rodgers has engaged in positive contract discussions with Green Bay, until the ink on the paper is dry, everything else remains in play.
According to Ian Rapoport, inside sources continue to report that Aaron Rodgers remains "truly torn" on where to play next year.
Yesterday, league sources seemed confident he would remain in Green Bay; today, sources familiar with Rodgers himself say he continues to struggle with the decision. All of the NFL seems to be waiting to see where the MVP chip will fall to make choices going forward, which makes sense given the impact - both financial and competitive - his signing will be.
