Who else are the top earners in the NFL? Andrew dethroned Aaron Rodgers who was the last player to earn a huge NFL contract. Jordan Rodgers‘ brother became rich like Kim Kardashian when the Green Bay Packers signed him to a five-year, $110 million deal in 2013. Yowza! He could buy whatever he wanted with that kind of moolah! Then there is Ciara‘s man, quarterback Russell Wilson, who is also a top QB in the league. In 2015, Russell signed with his team, the Seattle Seahawks, a four-year, $87.6 million extension that included $60 million in guaranteed money. Ballin!
So how did Andrew pull-off this mega-deal? Andrew threw lots of footballs. He has passed for 14,838 yards in his first four seasons in the NFL which puts him in the top four QB’s in the league. He also has over 100 touchdown passes in the last four years. So yeah, the guy can throw the rock pretty well.
“I am thrilled and excited to continue with this great organization,” Andrew shared via the report by ESPN. “I am thankful to the Irsay family and Mr. Irsay for providing me with this great opportunity and the trust that they’ve shown in me. I can’t wait for this season to start.” We agree with you Andrew, we can’t wait for football either! Andrew is scheduled to report to training camp July 26. Good luck, Mr. Luck!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of the NFL’s newest hundred million dollar man? What would you do if you were Andrew and had an extra hundred million dollars to spend?
