Aaron Rodgers: NBA Players Have More Leverage Than NFL

7 eclectic outfits Aaron Rodgers has worn for the Welcome Back Packers Luncheon

7 eclectic outfits Aaron Rodgers has worn for the Welcome Back Packers Luncheon

The Packers are comfortably under the salary cap, and Rodgers' slight increase is actually offset by the space gained through Green Bay's trade of quarterback Brett Hundley to Seattle.

Either way, the Brady vs. Rodgers debate is one that's been going on for years, and it gained even more steam Wednesday when Rodgers signed a record-breaking contract extension with the Packers that reportedly could pay him up to $180 million in total money. "The number of players on the active roster and counting salary cap is definitely a hindrance to some of that stuff".

Later in Thursday's call, Rodgers again brought up the idea of a less traditional deal, while discussing the importance of negotiating a contract with benchmarks that would benefit other players down the line. In his career, Rodgers has been selected to six Pro Bowls, was named the NFL's most valuable player twice (2011 and 2014), and helped lead the Packers to a victory in Super Bowl XLV. "I've grown up, and like I said, I've grown older in an area, this city, this region, this state".

The battery is rated at 3600 mAh, with up to 10W charging, and will be offered in two colors: Moonlight Blue and Twilight Purple. On the front, it sports a 6-inch IPS display with Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.

The Packers and Rodgers came to an agreement on a new four-year deal on Wednesday worth a whopping $134 million.

The Cal alum was drafted by the Packers in 2005. Rodgers would make $33.5 million a year while Ryan would make $30 million a year under their new contacts.
