Aaron Rodgers Packers Deal Done, Khalil Mack Up Next?

Atlanta's Matt Ryan held the previous benchmarks for annual salary ($30m) and guaranteed money ($94.5m). Schefter later reported that the deal includes $103m practically guaranteed and $67m due before the end of 2018.

The two-time MVP Rodgers, 34, has re-upped with the Packers with terms that could keep him in Green Bay for the remainder of his National Football League playing days.

As part of the deal, Rodgers will earn more than $80 million by March, which works out to roughly $400,000 per day over the next 200 days, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell. He will turn 40 in December of that year.

Maria Sharapova held on to edge 39-year-old Patty Schnyder , the oldest female qualifier in Grand Slam history, in the U.S. The No. 6-seeded Djokovic headed to a fourth set with Marton Fucsovics after the players took a break following the third.

The Packers and the 34-year-old Rodgers recently have feuded, from the team releasing wide receiver Jordy Nelson to cutting ties with quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt.

Even his five-year, $110 million extension in 2013 soon looked outdated, wild as the numbers appeared to be at the time. That's the only way this is going to work, and the best way things work in this situation is that we're in this thing together.

Of course, knowing how special a player Rodgers is, the Packers also likely knew they had no choice not to do it. "And then that's my side of the bargain". It makes sense that the Packers will pay him handsomely to keep him around for as long as they can. He posted a 4-3 record with 16 touchdowns to six interceptions and a 97.2 passer rating.
