Aaron Rodgers’ contract with the Green Bay Packers is unlike any other in NFL history. The quarterback is staying with the only franchise he’s ever known for a record deal that will make him the league’s highest-paid player.

Rodgers’ new contract includes a $42 million salary in 2022 and a massive $59.515 million salary in 2023, NFL Network reports. Rodgers is due to make a $49.3 million salary in 2024, completing the $150.815 million deal.

With an average yearly salary north of $50 million, Rodgers’ contract blows away the previous record. Patrick Mahomes’ 10-year, $450 million deal had been the high mark with a $45 million average annual value.

On his previous deal, Rodgers had made an average salary of $33.5 million.

Last week, Rodgers denied reports that he was signing a four-year, $200 million contract, indicating that he would sign a cap-friendly deal for the Packers. The contract saves Green Bay about $18 million on the 2022 salary cap, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. The Packers’ cap will suffer in future seasons.

Green Bay prevented Davante Adams from becoming a free agent by using the franchise tag on the receiver. Adams has reportedly said he won’t play on the tag in 2022. The Packers and Rodgers’ top target have until July 15 to agree on a long-term contract.

In 17 NFL seasons, Rodgers has earned $263.6 million from the Packers. The 38-year-old has made 10 Pro Bowls and won four NFL MVP awards. Rodgers led Green Bay to a Super Bowl championship in the 2010 season.

Rodgers has won back-to-back MVP awards and led Green Bay to three straight 13-win seasons.
