Rodgers among highest paid quarterbacks

Now that Aaron Rodgers‘ contract numbers have come in — a five-year extension that gives him six more years for $65 million, including $40.5 million in first three years of the contract — they can be compared.

And Rodgers’ contract now makes him, remarkably, the fourth highest paid quarterback in the game, behind only Peyton Manning, Carson Palmer and Ben Roethlisberger.

The Packers made a strong statement about how much they believed in Rodgers when they traded Favre.

Now, after only eight starts, they have made an even stronger statement about how much they believe he is their quarterback of the future.
