Aaron Rodgers is No Longer NFL’s Highest-Paid
He’s no longer the highest-paid player in the NFL.
That honor now belongs to that dandy, Andrew Luck and his grotesque neckbeard.
Luck got a new six-year, $139 million deal today.
His average annual salary of $23.1 million eclipses that of Rodgers’ meager $22 million annually.
That’s not all, either.
He also received the most guaranteed money in history.
Before today, richest guarantees were $65 million given to Eli Manning and Philip Rivers. Colts gave Andrew Luck $87 million in guarantees.

Plus, the overall value of the deal is the largest in NFL history.

Here’s where we point out that contract values have much less to do with actual merit than they do with timing.
But still, what do you think about that AR?
