Aaron Rodgers is No Longer NFL’s Highest-Paid

If Dickie Klatt’s letter to the editor and everyone else saying he sucked in 2015 wasn’t enough, here’s another reason for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to be pissed off.

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.

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?

    Well Kirk Cousins gets paid pretty much same annual salary as Tom Brady. That doesn’t seem right either. Flacco actually makes more per year than Rodgers. It’s good to be NFL QB.

      Brady has taken multiple pay cuts/restructuring so the Patriots could win the Super Bowl again. Which they did. Favre, the NFL’s first $100 million man, never took a pay cut and it looks like Rodgers won’t be taking a pay cut any time soon either.

        Yep. That is the point. I thought it would be more common, at least from the highest paid players, to want the titles more than that extra million.

          I agree, when a player is worth over 100 million, 200 million, 300 million. Us common folk wonder…when is enough, enough? At 100 million, my life is set, my kids are set, my grandkids are set. When is it enough money? I suppose human greed plays a part, but if i retire with 100 million, i’m enjoying life with my family, not trying to make more money.

            I guess some people wish to have an affluent lifestyle? I would imagine it is hard to go from living on cloud 9 back down to having to set a budget, etc. But yeah, id be happy with just a meager 50M.
