Aaron Rodgers reportedly agrees to a four-year extension with the Green Bay Packers

Apparently A-Rod isn’t done in Green Bay just yet.

The Green Bay Packers are reaffirming their commitment with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, making him the highest paid player in NFL history:

I’m probably not the only one surprised by this union given all of the drama swirling around A-Rod and the team last year...and A-Rod will now command about $50 million per year, despite being 38 years old.

One piece of fantasy fallout is that the structure of A-Rod’s new deal means that the Packers should slap the franchise tag on stud wideout Davante Adams. So for the time being, I think we can safely consider Rodgers and Adams among their respective position’s elite performers. Hopefully this means Green Bay will make assembling more passing game weapons a priority for Rodgers. The WR2 spot still seems up for grabs in Green Bay, as it seems to be every year.

What say you all? Is this going to be a productive union for the next four years? I’m inclined to say YES, especially if A-Rod gets at least one new toy to play with that isn’t named Randall Cobb...
