Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has the reputation of being one of the top passers in the NFL. Now, he's being paid the most. 

The Packers and Rodgers agreed to a whopping $134 million extension over four years on Wednesday.

After the Vikings gave a fully guaranteed contract to free agent Kirk Cousins, Rodgers gets a large part of his deal guaranteed, with $103 million guaranteed in the deal. 

Rodgers was injured for most of last season, and his absence was felt when the Packers went 3-6 under then-backup Brett Hundley in 2017 (Hundley was traded to Seattle on Wednesday as well), which led to the Packers missing out on the postseason.
