Packers Pick Up $11.4M Of 2020 Cap Room By Reworking Aaron Rodgers’ Contract


Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Packers converted $14.26 million of Aaron Rodgers’ 2020 $19.5 million roster bonus into a signing bonus and promoted the money over the next five seasons. 

This move creates $11.4 million of cap space for the Packers in 2020. 

Green Bay has some notable contracts on the horizon including DT Kenny Clark. Beyond that, Packers RT Bryan Bulaga and ILB Blake Martinez are among their notable free agents next year, so this gives them some room to work with next year.

Rodgers, 36, is a former first-round pick of the Packers back in 2005. He agreed to a four-year, $134 million extension that includes over $100 million guaranteed last year. 

Rodgers will make base salaries $1,100,000 and $14,700,000 over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2019, Rodgers has appeared in 15 games for the Packers and completed 63.4 percent of his passes for 3,679 yards receiving, 24 touchdowns and three interceptions. He has also rushed for 182 yards and a touchdown.
