Aaron Rodgers is reportedly all set to stay in New York for much longer than initially expected. The 39-year-old joined the New York Jets in a sensational trade move, ending an incredibly successful stint at Green Bay Packers earlier this offseason.

The initial contract between Rodgers and the franchise was thought to be for two years, however, a report by Mike Florio claims that the contract is, in reality, a seven-year deal. Florio also claimed that the contract will run out till 2030 with no void years. This essentially means that the quarterback does not hold much freedom in his future choices, and the deal would only come to an end before 2030 if he decides to retire or the franchise releases him.

The report read, “Come 2025, there’s no void. Rodgers is on the books for another $35 million option bonus and a $2.5 million salary. Neither payment is guaranteed. It’s a cap number of $23.5 million, assuming he plays. If he does, he’ll be 41 when the season starts, and 42 by the time it ends. The 2026 through 2029 seasons contain base salaries of $20 million per year.”

Since his arrival in New York, Rodgers has struck all the right chords so far. The biggest of them arguably came out a few days ago, as he revealed that he has agreed to take a pay cut at his new home.

Various reports have claimed that he will lose out as much as $35 million in guaranteed pay courtesy of his new contract. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported that his contract includes a guaranteed pay of $75 million over the next two years, a figure that is in stark contrast to his $110 million guaranteed pay remaining on his previous deal with the Green Bay Packers.

In the current era, where quarterbacks are striking record-breaking deals almost every other day, Aaron Rodgers has made it clear that all he seeks is a Super Bowl trophy. The Jets too have done their best to provide him with all the resources required to make them serious contenders this season.
