In case you’ve not heard the news, New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers has agreed to a two-year contact extension with the team, essentially putting to rest any fears that he could be a one and done with New York.

And his deal is worth $75 million guaranteed, a big time pay cut, something he never showed a willingness to do with the Packers.

"No team sport player is thought to have revised his contract in such a team-focused way in the past," wrote ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

"I think it says a lot when the best player on your football team -- a Hall of Famer -- is willing to sacrifice something because he wants to win, which is ultimately what we're all here to do,“ Jets head coach Robert Saleh said.

“I have talked to you guys about how selfless and how thoughtful [Rodgers] is, with his statement and what he’s done with the organization in terms of giving us this opportunity to be able to go at least try to pursue a guy like Dalvin,” Saleh then continued. “It’s been going on since free agency where it just feels like guys want to be here. 

“There’s a lot of excitement in the locker room, so hopefully that momentum continues.”

In March of 2022, Rodgers was the NFL’s highest paid player with an annual salary of $50 million.

Packers fans are rightfully wondering why he never gave them this kind of discount when they were in win now mode, especially now considering the fact that the team is dealing with $40 million in dead cap money.

Just how big of an insult is this contract from Rodgers with the Jets against the Packers?
