Aaron Rodgers signed a restructured contract with the Jets on July 26, 2023, after successfully demanding a trade out of Green Bay. 

Rodgers’ arrival in New York – and his new, three-year contract worth north of $100 million – built an unprecedented amount of hype for the Jets, who currently have the longest playoff drought in professional sports.

Rodgers tore his Achilles on the Jets’ first drive of the season, cratering the Jets’ Super Bowl odds and handing the keys back to maligned third-year quarterback Zach Wilson. 

Aaron Rodgers Contract With Jets

Aaron Rodgers’ contract with the Jets has a total value of $112,500,000. Thanks to specific contractual provisions, the Jets cannot apply the franchise tag to him at the end of the contract. They also cannot trade Rodgers without his express permission. 

Aaron Rodgers Salary 2023

Rodgers’ base salary for 2023 is $1,838,888 – a paltry amount for a superstar quarterback of Rodgers’ caliber. 

Rodgers gave the Jets a lot of money back during the contract restructuring in order to give the team maximum financial flexibility to create a Super Bowl contender.

Aaron Rodgers Guaranteed Money

Aaron Rodgers’ contract with the Jets includes $75 million in guaranteed money.

Aaron Rodgers Injury 

On Sept. 12, an MRI confirmed that Aaron Rodgers tore his left Achilles tendon on the first drive of the Jets’ Week 1 game against the Bills.

Aaron Rodgers Injury History

Aaron Rodgers has sustained a number of minor injuries over the years – especially throughout his last few seasons – but most of them have been relatively minor and didn’t prevent him from playing.

For instance, in 2022, Rodgers sustained both a rib bruise and a thumb fracture. 

Rodgers’ last serious injuries were collarbone fractures, which he suffered in both 2013 and 2017. The former incident caused him to miss seven games. 

Aaron Rodgers Age

Aaron Rodgers is currently 39, though he will turn 40 on December 2. He’ll be 42 at the end of his current contract with the Jets, making him one of the oldest NFL players still in the league.
