Aaron Rodgers and Packers sign four-year, $200M contract.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' offseason dance may have ended.  

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport said Tuesday that Green Bay signed a four-year, $200 million agreement with Rodgers, 38, includes $153 million in guaranteed money. Rodgers becomes the NFL's highest-paid player annually and lowers his 2022 salary cap  

The latter is crucial to Green Bay's season. Davante Adams' retention was difficult due to Green Bay's $26 million salary overage and Rodgers' $46.6 million 2022 cap number.  

Rapoport stated that Green Bay will apply the franchise tag to Adams before Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline due to Rodgers' new, lower cap number.  

"The Pat McAfee Show" originally reported Rodgers' contract. The quarterback tweeted that he "will be playing for the Packers" this season and is "very excited to be back."  

His deal's ripples continue. The massive extension allows Rodgers to avoid a forced succession plan involving 2020 first-round selection Jordan Love, similar to how he followed Brett Favre.  

Of course, Favre moved to New York and Minneapolis before retiring, and it's evident Rodgers won't either.
