Aaron Rodgers agrees to 4-year, $134M extension

Aaron Rodgers of the Packers was paid well. 

A source told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's James Jones that the Packers and Rodgers have agreed to a four-year, $134 million agreement.  

Rapoport claimed that Rodgers received a record $57.5 million signing bonus and will earn over $80 million by March. Later, the team confirmed the contract.  

Rodgers entered the season with two years left on his five-year, $110 million agreement from 2013, which pays base salaries of $19.8 million in 2018 and $20 million in 2020.  

Throughout the offseason, the Packers said they would sign the two-time NFL MVP to a new contract.  

With a new contract, Rodgers and the Packers will be focused on their Sept. 9 regular-season opening against the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field. 

Since joining the NFL in 2005, 34-year-old Rodgers has been the Packers' heart and soul, leading them to a Super Bowl XLV title and MVP.  

As a starter, Rodgers has a 94-48 record, 38,502 yards, 313 touchdowns, 78 interceptions, and a 103.8 passer rating. NFL history's greatest passing rating and TD-INT ratio (minimum 2,000 attempts).
