The current starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers was drafted in 2005 by the very same side in the first round of the NFL Draft. Rodgers led the Green and Golds to a championship in 2011, when he led the Packers to a 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.
Having a career passer rating of over 100, only the second person to hold this feat besides Russell Wilson, Rodgers is considered by many as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of the game. The 14-year veteran is estimated to have a net worth of $70 million.
Aaron Rodgers Salary
The 35-year-old has already earned over $200 million cumulatively over the course of his career and is set to add to this tally if he runs out the 4-year $134 million contract extension that he signed with the Packers in 2018. However, the sum is likely to shoot up to an estimated value of $180 million when all bonus and guaranteed cash flows are taken into consideration.
The Super Bowl XLV MVP thus has an average salary of $33.5 million. However, he made a total of $66.9 million in 2018 including basic salary of $1.1 million, signing bonus of $57.5 million, roster bonus of $7.8 million and a workout bonus of half a million dollars.
Aaron Rodgers Endorsements and Investments
Rodgers has worked with a plethora of companies such as Nike, Ford and State Farm. The 2005 NFL Draft's 24th pick moved over to Adidas once his deal with Nike expired in 2015.
A long time fan of the NBA and the Milwaukee Bucks in particular, Rodgers purchased a minority stake in the franchise back in 2018. This made him the only active NFL player to hold an ownership in an NBA franchise.
Aaron Rodgers Charity Work
Rodgers, who is one of the biggest faces of the NFL right now, is in many ways a social activist of sorts. He has been acclaimed for his work in helping children with cancer. He has worked closely with the Medical College of Wisconsin and the MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) Fund. Rodgers was also conferred with a honorary doctorate by the same college in May 2018.
Rodgers also appealed to the people in general to lend a helping hand in the rehabilitation efforts post the 2018 California fires in a video posted on his own Twitter account. He also pledged $1 million towards the same.
