GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Aaron Rodgers tweeted Tuesday, March 8, he will be back with the Green Bay Packers.
Hey everyone, just wanted to clear some things up; YES I will be playing with the @packers next year, however, reports about me signing a contract are inaccurate, as are the supposed terms of the contract I “signed”. I’m very excited to be back ?? #year18❤️— Aaron Rodgers (@AaronRodgers12) March 8, 2022

The #Packers and MVP QB Aaron Rodgers have agreed to terms on a 4-year, $200M deal that makes him the highest paid player in NFL history, sources say. He gets a whopping $153M guaranteed and his cap number goes down. A monstrous commitment by GB for years to come. ? ? ?— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 8, 2022
The 38-year-old QB has only gotten better with age winning back-to-back MVPs while leading the Packers to the playoffs in three straight seasons.
Rodgers has spent his entire career with the Packers after being drafted in 2005. After three seasons backing up Brett Favre, Rodgers got his first chance to start in 2008 and quickly turned into a superstar.
During the 2010 season the 10-time pro bowler led the Packers to his first and only Super Bowl title beating the Steelers 31-25. Rodgers finished the game 24/39, throwing for 304 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions and was named Super Bowl XLV MVP.
He followed the Super Bowl championship with his first regular season MVP honors in 2011 before winning the award three more times (2014, 2020 and 2021). That is the second most MVP awards in NFL history.
