Two weeks ago, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers signed a massive contract to stay with the team for the next five years.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has inked a contract extension with the team.
The deal, which the Packers officially announced Wednesday afternoon, will pay Rodgers a reported $103 million in guaranteed money, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and other reports, and could reach a staggering total of $180 million over the next four years.
The contract would make Rodgers the highest-paid player in the league, averaging nearly $34 million per season.
Unfortunately for the Packers, Rodgers got injured in the first game of the season after he got sacked by Bears DE Roy Robertson. As you can see in the video below, Rodgers stayed on the ground for several minutes before walking off the field with a limp.
Rodgers was visibly upset as he was carted off the field before halftime.
Packers fans didn’t take the news too well.
