Aaron Rodgers is set to get a big contract extension from the Packers. If teammate A.J. Hawk's sources are correct, Rodgers is going to get a fortune.
Green Bay Packers teammate A.J. Hawk believes quarterback Aaron Rodgers may get a $1 billion contract — and the star linebacker says the 29-year-old ex-Cal star is worth it.
"Let’s be honest, all of us minions have nothing that we can offer Aaron that would even come close to anything that he would get," Hawk told the NFL Network.
"He deserves every dime he’s going to get. He’s going to get a billion dollars, probably, so I’m OK with anything they want to give him, because he’s one of the best in the world and he deserves everything."
Rodgers and the Packers are reportedly working on a new deal that league sources believe will earn him $25 million per season and make him the highest-paid player in NFL history.
He'd have to sign a 40-year contract at $25 million per year to earn that coveted billion dollars. Will Aaron be the NFL's first septuagenarian?
