Aaron Rodgers Net Worth 2016: How Much is Aaron Rodgers Worth Right Now?

Aaron Rodgers Net Worth 2016

Over his career in the NFL, Aaron Rodgers has made approximately $30.5 million as a Green Bay Packer. Rodgers is considered one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and his accolades back that up.

Being a first-round draft pick by the Green Bay Packers, Rodgers spent his early days as a back-up to Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre. He made his first start in 2009 and has not looked back since.

Rodgers went on to win a Super Bowl ring, a Super Bowl MVP trophy, and two regular season MVP trophies in 2011 and 2014. He is just one out of five quarterbacks in NFL history to win a Super Bowl and two MVP trophies.

Aaron Rodgers Net Worth as of 2016: $30.5 Million

Coming out of the University of California, the Green Bay Packers selected Rodgers with the number 24 overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. Rodgers didn’t see much of the field in his first couple of seasons, as Brett Favre was still the starting quarterback. Rodgers rookie contract reported was to be a five-year $7.7 million deal that included $5.4 million guaranteed and contingencies depending on playing time.

After Brett Favre retired, Rodgers became the new face of the Green Bay Packers franchise. He also received an extra $2.2 million because Favre retired before 2009. In 2010, a year after becoming the starter, he led the Packers to a Super Bowl victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers where he was named Super Bowl MVP. If that wasn’t enough, Rodgers went on to win the regular season MVP in 2011. He threw for 4,643 passing yards, 45 touchdown passes, and six interceptions, which gave him a passer rating of 122.5 (the highest in NFL history).


2013 – 2016

On April 26, 2013, the Packers and Rodgers agreed to a five-year, $110 million contract extension making him the highest paid player in NFL history.

In a tweet after the signing, Rodgers said, “Big thanks to the Organization, our coaching staff, my teammates and packer nation for the last 8 years! Excited about 7 more!”

He went on to win a second MVP in 2014 but failed to beat the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship.

Deservedly so, Rodgers will earn $11.6 million in salary for the 2016 season. Off the field, Rodgers is known as the “Discount Double Check” guy for State Farm but is also endorsed by Adidas and Ford. Rodgers is due to make an estimate of $7.5 million in endorsements.
