Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is living the life. He has a Super Bowl ring to his name and has become league MVP four times. He’s also a five-time All-Pro and a ten-time Pro Bowler. The Cal alumnus has also led the league in completion percentage, passer rating, and touchdowns at least once in his career. Rodgers also owns the best career touchdown-to-interception ratio in league history at 4.83 and the lowest career interception percentage at 1.83. Throwing the least amount of picks is part of his greatness and his hefty bank account.
Recently, he agreed to a three-year, $150 million fully-guaranteed contract extension. That deal includes $101.5 million guaranteed at signing and a $40.8 million signing bonus. Speaking of that bonus, ESPN’s Field Yates revealed that Rodgers will get some of that money soon.
As part of his contract extension this offseason, Aaron Rodgers received a $40.8M bonus that was due to be paid by December 31st.
Green Bay recently tweaked the deal, paying Rodgers $20.8M by June 20th and $20M more by September 30th.
Monday will be a great day for Rodgers.

After all, it could amount to a one-year salary for an NFL player, depending on their position. Rodgers Ready To Prove That He’s Worth The Money His new contract makes him the highest-paid player in league history. Therefore, he will do everything in his power to prove that he’s worth every penny. Yes, he did win a Super Bowl but it’s high time to get another one, especially before his impending retirement.
Getting another ring might be difficult, given that his longtime primary target Davante Adams isn’t around anymore. That said, he will have to help Allen Lazard replace Adams while helping Randall Cobb and Sammy Watkins deliver consistent numbers.
