A look at Aaron Rodgers' absurd career stats

Aaron Rodgers signed a massive three-year extension with the Green Bay Packers in March.

It appears Aaron Rodgers will get a fat paycheck on June 20. Per Ken Ingalls:

Aaron Rodgers will earn $42.0M cash in 2022, yet only $9.36 million counts on the 2022 cap

2024: $49.3M cash, $17.97M on cap

Huge built-in cap proration here! If he plays 3 years & retires the Packers end up with $76.8M dead cap over 2025-2026.

Does Rodgers play 3 more years? Probably not…

So if it ends up being 1 & Done for Rodgers, the Packers are left with “only” $40.31M of dead cap in 2023-2024.

If it’s 2 years & Done, then they are are hit with $68.21M of dead cap in 2024-2025.

Consequently, only $9M of the $42M of cash counts this year. The remaining $19M of cap hit this year is previous prorations from his last contract. That’s how it counts total of ~$28M.

In conclusion, the Green Bay Packers are looking at one possibly two more years of Rodgers under center.
