Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, will be a cheese head for the foreseeable future, as he has agreed to a five-year, $110 million contract extension with the NFL franchise, reports ESPN.com.

The deal will set the highest salary per season in NFL history, eclipsing the $120.6 million over six years the Baltimore Ravens gave quarterback Joe Flacco in March.

Rodgers is expected to make $40 million in 2013, some of which is bonus money; and will add five years on top of the two years Rodgers has remaining on his contract and will keep him in Green Bay through the 2019 season.

From 2013-15, the star QB will make $62.5 million, and $110 million in new money over the course of the extension.

“Big thanks to the Organization, our coaching staff, my teammates, and packer nation for the last 8 years! Excited about 7 more!” Rodgers tweeted Friday.
