Packers’ Rodgers lands rich contract extension

High Contrast Normal Version

 

The Green Bay Packers announced yesterday that they signed quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a contract extension.

The deal, according to a person with knowledge of the contract who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity, is worth as much as $110 million, with $40 million guaranteed.

The $22 million annual average of the extension is the highest salary in NFL history, slightly trumping the $120.6 million that the Baltimore Ravens gave quarterback Joe Flacco last month over six years.

“I’m excited to know my future is here and I’ll be here for a lot longer,” Rodgers said.

The Packers are 53-27 in Rodgers’ five years as a starter, and he led them to the Super Bowl title following the 2010 season.
