Aaron Rodgers takes $35 million pay cut with Jets in new deal that runs through 2024

Last week, Aaron Rodgers called staying in New York for one year a "disservice" and signed for two.The Jets and the four-time MVP have allegedly reached an agreement for next season. Rodgers helped his team.

Rodgers took a $35 million pay cut, reducing his guaranteed $110 million contract to $75 million.

The Jets acquired the 40-year-old quarterback from the Packers.

Before his "darkness retreat," Rodgers was "90% retired" and ready to leave the Packers. After emerging from the darkness, he still wanted to leave Wisconsin but wanted to be a Jet.

Rodgers intended to retire a Packer and be one of "the Tim Duncans, the [Derek] Jeters, the Kobes [Bryant] of the world," but it was time for a change.

"This revitalized me. "I'm excited to meet the new guys and just be around it all," Rodgers told ESPN New York Radio's Rick DiPietro and Dave Rothenberg Friday.

"I'm not cliché. Most people would say, "I'm taking this one day or one year at a time," but the Jets gave up a lot for me. "Playing one year would be a disservice," Rodgers remarked.

NY finished 7-10 last season. Young Jets talent is rising despite missing the playoffs. Garrett Wilson and Sauce Gardner, a first-team All-Pro, are the offensive and defensive rookies of the year. Breece Hall, who tore an ACL midseason, should be fine for 2023.
