The future of Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay has been a hot topic since since the Green Bay Packers’ NFC Divisional Round loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Okay, so those inquiries actually began prior to the start of this season, but they have undoubtedly become more pressing during the last six weeks. And today, Rodgers finally provided us with a response: He won’t be moving.

Rodgers is now the highest-paid player in NFL history thanks to a four-year, $200 million contract he signed with the Packers, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Jay Glazer said that the funds would be distributed equally, so Rodgers would receive $50 million annually. The deal will allegedly reduce Rodgers’ cap number and provide the Packers with more room to sign (or re-sign) other players to support their quarterback. It also reportedly includes $153 million in guaranteed money.
