Aaron Rodgers Signs Record-Setting Contract Extension

Joe Flacco‘s reign as Super Bowl MVP will at least last longer than his reign as the highest paid player in the NFL. That title now belongs  to the Green Bay Packers‘ stud QB Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers and the Packers came to terms on a contract extension that will keep the QB in Green Bay until 2019 for the hefty sum of $110 million. Not only will that give Rogers the highest per season salary in the league, it also sets a new record for guaranteed money: $62.5 million. Flacco’s recent contract was for six years/$120 million.

Rogers took to Twitter to thank the organization and the Green Bay faithful:


Good investment we’d say — The Pack is 53-27 in Rodgers’ five years as a starter with a Super Bowl win in 2010/11, and he’s largely considered to be one of the best five QBs in the league. Hey - at least Joe Flacco is still the leader of the reigning Super Bowl champs.

For now.
