GREEN BAY — We're learning more about the contract MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers has signed with the Green Bay Packers.
On Tuesday the Packers announcedRodgers has signed a contract extension, but the team did not confirm reports of the contract's details - namely, how long and how much.
But earlier on Tuesday, we got a hint when NFL Network's Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport tweeted "first read" numbers from Rodgers' contract.
In the new contract Rodgers gets:
- $42 million in 2022
- $59.515 million in 2023
- $49.3 million in 2024
That adds up to a total of $150.815 million over three years. The first two years are fully guaranteed at signing, according to Pelissero.
Rapoport notes Rodgers has committed to at least two seasons with the team and perhaps more.
NFL Network's Mike Garafolo also pitched in the following cap numbers for Rodgers over the next three years:
- 2022: $28.5 million (down from $46.7 million)
- 2023: $31.6 million (up from $7.7 million on a previously voidable year)
- 2024: $40.7 million

From @GMFB: The Aaron Rodgers contract numbers are in. What did we learn? The #Packers QB committed to at least two seasons, maybe more, and he'll earn $62M per year over the first two new years. $50M per year over the first three.
