Aaron Rodgers signed an extension with the Packers on Wednesday

The Packers and Rodgers came to an agreement on a new four-year deal on Wednesday worth a whopping $134 million. He quote tweeted the news of the contract, which was also reported by former Packer James Jones, with: "Yet he still aint paid me my $20 I let em borrow in '16".

The deal includes $103 million guaranteed, as well as a signing bonus of $57.5 million.

The deal makes Rodgers, 34, the highest-paid player in National Football League history with more than $100 million guaranteed.

"Thank you to our incredible fan base for inspiring us players to be better year after year". And thank you to my teammates along the way, past and present who have impacted my life in so many positive ways, giving me friendships for life. Now, he's the highest paid player of them all.

Fortnite update introduces Shockwave Grenade and Solid Gold LTM
Build strong bases and bring plenty of ammo because Traps won't trigger in this weeks challenge. Shockwave Grenade launches players over "great distances" in the game without any fall damage.

The Cal alum was drafted by the Packers in 2005.

Rodgers deserves this new contract. Once Kirk Cousins got his massive deal from the Vikings and Matt Ryan re-upped with the Falcons, it was only a matter of time before the Packers QB would be making a huge deposit into his checking account. Many teams have seen their rosters collapse right before their eyes after paying their franchise quarterback a large sum of money.

Prior to this trade, Austin Davis, last year's backup, and Alex McGough, a seventh-round pick in this year's draft, had been competing for the backup job behind Seahawks starter Russell Wilson. He's widely considered to be one of the league's top quarterbacks.
