Aaron Rodgers Not Worried About Contract

Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has three years left on his current contract, but when Drew Brees got handed the highest signing bonus in league history we got a pretty good idea of what Rodgers’ next contract will look like.

Rodgers, who will make $8.5 million this season, is grossly underpaid when compared to the league’s top-paid quarterbacks and the Packers will likely give him an extension before his current deal is up.

Of course, Rodgers isn’t concerned about any of that.

“That stuff takes care of itself,” Rodgers told Ian Rapoport. “I still have a few years left on my deal, and we’ll talk about that when we get there.”

Is Rodgers really this swell of a guy? The kind who looks at what other guys are making and just doesn’t care?

Maybe. We know he’s driven to win more than anything. We also know he noticed when Brees got paid. Unlike other guys around the league, Rodgers doesn’t seem like the type to make a scene or hold out, though.

We’re sure the Packers will reward him soon. It seems like they have to.

    Everything about this guy makes him the perfect Packer. Says and does the right things, never causes any issues, a true leader and good guy. We need to truly appreciate how lucky we are to have him.

      So true. We are living witnesses of perfection at the QB position. He is the complete package – class act, leader of men, high football IQ, big time arm, life time student of the game – what is not to love about this guy?

      AR will be considered the best QB in Green Bay Packers history and will be classed among legendary signal callers a la Johnny Unitas and Joe Montana.

    Totally agreed, he’s the man, that’s the perfect way to look at it. dude is already rich, knows he’s going to be filthy rich, and he doesn’t have to do anything but keep playing football to make that happen

    What a class act. Nice to see a player not in it just for the money. He’s type A & wants to win; that drive serves the Packer fans well!! This truly is Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood now!

    Protect him, O-line….we could have a dynasty in the making here….
