    Aaron Rodgers’ Net Worth, Salary, and Career Earnings: How Much Money Has the New York Jets QB Made?

    New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been playing in the NFL for two decades. What is his net worth, and how does it stack up to other NFL legends?

    Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks of his generation, and all eyes will be on him as he looks to bounce back from his torn Achilles that he suffered in the New York Jets‘ 2023 season opener.

    These days, Rodgers seems to constantly make headlines for non-football reasons, but there’s no disputing that he has an incredible résumé.

    He’s a four-time MVP and 10-time Pro Bowler who won Super Bowl XLV (and earned Super Bowl MVP honors). Rodgers has led the NFL in passer rating four times (2011, 2012, 2020, and 2021) and passing touchdowns twice (2016 and 2020). He holds the NFL record for career passer rating, single-season passer rating, and lowest interception percentage in a season.

    Rodgers is entering his 20th NFL season, and he’s done quite well for himself over the last two decades. What is Rodgers’ net worth, and how does it stack up to other legendary quarterbacks?

    Aaron Rodgers’ Net Worth

    While Celebrity Net Worth estimates that Rodgers’ net worth is approximately $200 million, this number actually seems quite low.

    After all, Rodgers has earned $342,496,898 from his NFL contracts alone. He has the highest career earnings in NFL history, beating out runner-up Tom Brady ($332,962,392).

    And that figure isn’t even factoring in Rodgers’ 2024 salary with the Jets. If we include this year’s salary, Rodgers’ career earnings jump up to $380,658,010.

    This also doesn’t factor in the money that Rodgers makes from endorsement deals, which we’ll get to in a moment.

    Rodgers’ Contract With the Jets

    Last year, Rodgers and the Jets agreed to a three-year deal worth $112.5 million deal with $75 million guaranteed. He received a $35 million signing bonus with a $35 million option bonus in 2024.

    Here’s a breakdown of Rodgers’ salary cap numbers over the next three years:

    • 2024: $17.161 million
    • 2025: $51.5 million
    • 2026: $35 million

    Looking ahead, Rodgers’ 2025 salary isn’t guaranteed. However, the deal is set up in a way that will make it hard for the Jets to move on before that salary is due.

    Rodgers’ contract is actually a five-year deal with two void years. When the option bonus is exercised, a third-void year will be added. This allows the Jets to spread the prorated bonus money across the full five years at $7 million per year for each bonus.

    This means Rodgers will have leverage in 2025 to try and get a new deal. He will be 42 years old by then, but with the prospect of $86.5 million hanging over the Jets across two years, perhaps they will offer him another deal.

    Rodgers’ Endorsement Deals and Investments

    Rodgers has quite a few endorsement deals with brands.

    For years, he was partnered with State Farm Insurance, appearing in their commercials and popularizing the Discount Double Check. However, that partnership ended in 2023 following a 12-year run. Rodgers was reportedly earning roughly $3 million annually from State Farm when the partnership was active.

    In addition to State Farm, Rodgers has partnered with Pizza Hut, Adidas, Prevea Healthcare, Bergstrom Automotive, Sharpie, and IZOD, among others. Sportskeeda estimates that he earns $9 million a year from his endorsement deals alone.

    Rodgers also has a number of investments. In fact, he launched his own venture-capital firm called RX3 in 2019, with a $50 million fund. RX3 has invested in Full Swing, Therabody, Manscaped, Tocaya, Hydrow, Super Coffee, Hydrant, Victor, Mavis, Mack Weldon, Nom Nom and HIMS, among others.

    At one point, Rodgers and Ryan Braun opened the restaurant 8-Twelve together in Milwaukee, but it closed once Braun was suspended for violating the MLB’s performance-enhancing drugs policy.

    Also, Rodgers is a minority owner of the Milwaukee Bucks.
