In case you didn't hear, yesterday the Packers signed Aaron Rodgers to a 5 year, $110 million contract extension. Obviously, Rodgers deserved this kinda deal, so it's no surprise that he got one. Every writer/fan knew by the early offseason that #12 would be get paid piles of cash. It was just a matter of time.
In year one of the contract, the 2015-2016 season, Rodgers will make $40 million for some reason. If you like math, that's a solid 36.4% of the total cash he's due. I don't understand why they're paying him so much more one year, but I guess it doesn't matter. It won't affect any of his on-field affairs.
