Aaron Rodgers Reportedly Wants a New Contract

Things in Green Bay ended in awful fashion this NFL  postseason. The Packers hosted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship game, and they were easily handled by Tom Brady and company.  Things escalated pretty quickly following the loss,  with Aaron Rodgers proclaiming he’s not sure where he wants to play next season. Now there are reports Rodgers is looking for a new contract.

Via Pro Football Talk:

Per a league source, Rodgers wants a new contract.

Rodgers should want a new contract. He makes $33.5 million per year. He’s going to win the 2020 NFL MVP award. And he’s getting into the later years of his last deal, which will pay him far less in comparison to other quarterbacks.

He’s due to make $22.35 million in 2021, $25.5 million in 2022, and $25.5 million in 2023.

Rodgers currently ranks fifth in average new-money value, behind Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes ($45 million), Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson ($39 million), Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson ($35 million), and Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger ($34 million).

Rodgers earns the same amount as Rams quarterback Jared Goff.

Could this be why Aaron Rodgers dropped some bombs during his postgame press conference?

Who knows what’s going on  in Aaron’s head. He couldn’t have played any better this season, and it feels like his best chance at winning another Super bowl still lies in Green Bay.

It’s going to be a crazy offseason for Packers fans.
