How much money did Aaron Rodgers make for four games with the Jets this season?

Week 1 Monday Night Football ended prematurely for Aaron Rodgers, his first season under the NY Jets charge as well.

The future Hall of Fame member suffered a tear in his left Achilles tendon, so the 39-year-old quarterback will be virtually inactive for the rest of the calendar.

The Jets achieved an important victory against the Buffalo Bills, but at a very high price.

The concerns of the Jets and of Rodgers himself are getting worse, because not only the campaign is hanging by a thread, but also his career within the National Football League. He is no longer a young player and usually as time passes in an athlete’s life, these types of injuries are more difficult to repair.

However, Rodgers has a lot of guaranteed money.

In order for the quarterback to take the reins of the offense, the New York team will have to make a lot of efforts and give away several million dollars.

Rodgers, who amassed $306 million in his NFL career, signed a three-year, $150 million deal with the Green Bay Packers.

The four-time NFL MVP agreed to a restructured two-year, $75 million contract with the Jets in July. The new contract sees him give up nearly $35 million of the estimated $110 million in future money he was previously owed.

He accepted the restructuring to free up space in the salary cap.

Will Rodgers still make that $37.5 million for his short time with the Jets this season?

In terms of actual playing time, Rodgers played a total of 1 minute and 34 seconds before the clock stopped following his injury, or 94 seconds total. That means he gets paid about $399,000 per second of game time he watches, or nearly $24 million for the first minute alone.

According to numbers from Spotrac, Rodgers will make $36 million this year between base salary and bonuses.

The Jets acquired Rodgers, along with a 2023 fifth-rounder, from the Packers in exchange for a 2023 second-rounder, a 2023 sixth-rounder and a conditional 2024 second-rounder that would be the first if Rodgers plays the 65th. percent of snaps in 2023. The two teams also traded 2023 first-round picks, which saw New York fall from 13th to 15th.

Next week, the Jets will face the Cowboys with Zach Wilson as their starting quarterback.
