E.S.P.JEN: Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers Near A Deal To Make Him The Highest Paid NFL Athlete In History

The Green Bay Packers are about to close a deal with their star QB Aaron Rodgers that will make him the highest paid NFL player in history.

Details of Rodgers’ new contract have not been released yet, but insiders are saying he is expected to make $25 million per season, possibly for the next five or six years.

Critics question why Rodgers will be paid so much while others say that he’s still young and can still go do the job in years to come.

Rodgers’ deal will likely trump the one signed this offseason by Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco who signed a six-year contract worth $120.6 million.
