Yesterday afternoon the Green Bay Packers and franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers agreed to terms on a four-year, $134 million contract extension, which includes a record $57.5 million signing bonus and almost $103 million in guarantees. Rodgers' large signing bonus allows the Packers to spread his cap hit over a number of seasons.
Later in Thursday's call, Rodgers again brought up the idea of a less traditional deal, while discussing the importance of negotiating a contract with benchmarks that would benefit other players down the line. The initial roster consists of 26 offensive players, 24 defensive players and three specialists.
"Obviously, this is a potential last or second-to-last contract for myself and my career", Rodgers added. "So it was definitely something Dave and I talked about and why we were exploring a nontraditional type of deal that could help change some of the future contracts".
