We knew it was coming. The Green Bay Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers have reportedly agreed to terms on a four-year extension worth $134 million that includes more than $100 million guaranteed.
Rodgers is now the highest-paid player in the league.
The financial details of the contract were shared by Rodgers’ former teammate, James Jones on Twitter. And the reactions, of course, are flooding social media.
He got his money.. Fully deserved. pic.twitter.com/pFqP3kfhQH

Unlike Kirk Cousins Aaron Rodgers took all of the money. Smart man.

If Aaron Rodgers sprains his wrist counting money from his new deal, will he have to be carted off the field?

That Aaron Rodgers extension is a nice little investment for the Packers. Would be a shame if something happened to it. pic.twitter.com/j0cTdoxMhu
