"Ultimately, I don't think the National Football League is ready for those types of contracts". If Rodgers plays like he has to this point in his career, there's a pretty good chance it will be pushed further away but Packers history provides a pretty good example that nothing is set in stone.
Quarterback Chase Litton #8 of the Kansas City Chiefs hands the ball off to running back Darrel Williams #31 of the Kansas City Chiefs during the first half against the Green Bay Packers on August 30, 2018 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. But the minimal creativity in terms of structure was not for a lack of trying on Rodgers' part.

If McGloin had instead been a four-year backup for the Raiders and had never once started for them, fans would have been beside themselves wondering who to root for. His new deal will see him remain in Green Bay through the 2023 season, when he will be 39.

Danica Patrick had a bottle of Ace of Spades ready to go after Aaron Rodgers' signed his contract extension. ".If it could happen to Favre, it could happen to any of us". "I've grown up, and like I said, I've grown older in an area, this city, this region, this state".
When referring to his new extension, Rodgers said, "I don't think this guarantees anything other than maybe the first three years of the deal". "And it has been a really, really fun ride".
