Packers, Rodgers agree to contract extension

Aaron Rodgers

His contract establishes a new record just months after Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan broke the previous mark, signing a deal worth $30 million annually. Specific year-to-year details on the pact aren't known yet, and NFL contracts are often quite complicated, but NFL Network reported there will be incentives that Rodgers can reach each year to increase his compensation.

Aaron Rodgers is the highest-paid player in the National Football League for a second time in his career, and if he plays at the same kind of level Tom Brady is pioneering at 41 years old, it won't be the last time he gets a big payday.

As part of the deal, Rodgers will earn more than $80 million by March, which works out to roughly $400,000 per day over the next 200 days, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell. He will turn 40 in December of that year.

Since, he also claimed that due to the presence of saturated fatty acids it clogs coronary arteries, which is bad for the heart. Research shows that these fats are processed by the body differently than other dietary fats and can increase metabolism.

Rodgers has two years remaining on the five-year, $110 million contract extension he signed back in 2013, and those two years will pay him base salaries of $19.8 million and $20 million, per Spotrac.

"I'm not trying to screw them, you know", Rodgers said. That's the only way this is going to work, and the best way things work in this situation is that we're in this thing together.

With the new extension Rodgers, 34, will likely play the remainder of his career in Green Bay. He posted a 4-3 record with 16 touchdowns to six interceptions and a 97.2 passer rating.
