Aaron Rodgers confirms return as Packers QB

The Vikings will have to contend with Aaron Rodgers as a divisional opponent a little longer as various reports say the NFL’s reigning Most Valuable Player is set to sign a new deal to remain with the Green Bay Packers.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport initially reported Rodgers has agreed to a 4-year, $200-million dollar deal that would be the richest deal in NFL history.

Former NFL punter-turned-popular podcast host Pat McAfee – also a close personal friend of Rodgers’ – also confirmed a deal is in place, but refuted initial reports of the compensation.

For a second straight offseason, Rodgers had been hinting at a possible departure from Green Bay. He’s played for the Packers his entire 17-season career after the Packers made him the 25th overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft.

Rodgers sounded off on Twitter confirming he’ll be a Packer again, but said no contract has been signed and reported terms of the contract are inaccurate.

Rodgers is a 4-time NFL MVP (2011, 2014, 2020, 2021), ten-time Pro Bowler, and led the Packers to a win over Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLV after the 2010 season.

He is 16-10-1 in his 27 career games against the Vikings.
