Aaron Rodgers reportedly turned down a contract extension from the Green Bay Packers that would have made him the highest-paid player in the NFL.
The deal would have kept Rodgers with the Packers for five more seasons, ESPN reported Tuesday.
The details behind the reported extension offer were not made known.
The average annual value of Rodgers’ contract is $33.5 million, which is the sixth highest in the NFL, according to Over The Cap. His total contract is the 12th highest in the NFL, and the total guaranteed money to Rodgers — $78.7 million – is the third highest in the NFL.

This off-season, the Packers offered Aaron Rodgers a two-year contract extension that would have tied him to Green Bay for five more seasons and made him the highest-paid QB and player in football.
Rodgers declined the offer, proof it’s not about the money.
