Aaron Rodgers: New deal doesn’t guarantee I’ll finish career with Packers

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Ben Niemann during the game

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. The Packers announced the deal, but didn't disclose the terms.

Rodgers' fresh extension has him under Green Bay's payroll until 2023, By that time, Rodgers will be 40, so if he wants to extend his career beyond that, he'll have to make sure that his high level of play doesn't suffer a significant drop-off over the course of the next several years. Schefter also reports that Rodgers' contract will carry a cap hit of $33.5 million.

"Thank you to our incredible fan base for inspiring us players to be better year after year". A 2017 second-round draft choice of the Browns, Kizer is expected to back up Aaron Rodgers after this week's trade of erstwhile backup Brett Hundley to the Seahawks. Thank you to the Packers organization for standing by me time and time again and giving me the opportunity to lead this football team. "Looking forward to making some more memorable moments this year, and for years to come...."

Defiant Jose Mourinho defends record after Man United slump
Asked if this season will pose of tougher challenge for the champions, he said: "It will be quite similar, I would say". Mourinho has come under pressure at Old Trafford after overseeing United's worst start to a season since 1992.

The Cal alum was drafted by the Packers in 2005. Entering his 14th season, Rodgers will have the weight of the world on his shoulders due to his new contract.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy allowed most of his starters to remain in Green Bay rather than travel for a game in which they wouldn't play. Many teams have seen their rosters collapse right before their eyes after paying their franchise quarterback a large sum of money. But after Wilson was paid what he really deserved, it was all downhill from there. But the Chiefs' third-string offense moved the ball at will, and Dorleant's pick-6 early in the fourth quarter put an exclamation mark on their comeback.
