Just a day following Odell Beckham Jr.’s major contract extension, Aaron Rodgers has agreed to a massive deal of his own to stay with the Green Bay Packers, according to ESPN’s Adam Shefter. The deal is for four more years, and paying him a total of around $134 million.

 

The contract is rumored to guarantee Rodgers over $100 million and will kick in after the two years remaining on his current fine-year, $110 million extension, which he signed back in 2013.

According to CBS Sports, here’s how the math breaks down for Rodgers’ new extension in addition to the last two years on his current deal:

Four years at $33.5 million per year works out to $134 million, which, added to the two years and $41,662,500 (including workout and roster bonuses) remaining on Rodgers’ current deal, gives him a six-year, $175,662,500 million contract.

The biggest piece, and the record-breaking part, is the $100 million+ in guarantees Rodgers will receive.

Rodgers has worked for this deal, as he’s been one of the most consistent QBs in the NFL (when he’s not suffering from a broken collarbone), and has quite the resume to back up his large, new salary.
