Aaron Rodgers has agreed to a contract extension with the Green Bay Packers for an additional four years to stay with the team for $200 million dollars. Which $150 million of it reportedly being guaranteed that would free up cap space for the team. This would be the most guaranteed money in the NFL.
Rodgers had been rumored to either retire or request a trade this offseason. The top landing spot for him would have been the Denver Broncos most people thought. Although Green Bay could have traded him to any team either he or the team desired. Other teams that were rumored to be his top landing spots were the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tennessee Titans.
Rodgers is a four-time league MVP, a Super Bowl champion, and he has played his entire career with the Packers so far. He is now locked in for five more years with the team after this extension.
The next move for the Packers is to keep Davante Adams who has been linked to Rodgers his entire career and reportedly was willing to follow wherever Rodgers went. Adams has had a great career and Rodgers throws his way a lot, so it makes sense he would want to follow Rodgers.
The Packers have been a good team but will need more help to get past teams like the Rams, 49ers, and Cowboys in the NFC.
