180829-aaron-rodgers-announcement-2560

The Green Bay Packers have signed QB Aaron Rodgers to a contract extension. The signing was announced Wednesday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.

Rodgers, who was drafted by the Packers in the first round (No. 24 overall) in 2005, ranks No. 1 in NFL history (min. 1,500 attempts) with a career passer rating of 103.8. He also ranks No. 1 in league history in career INT percentage (1.59) and TD/INT ratio (4.01). For his career, Rodgers has completed 3,188 of 4,895 passes (65.1 pct.) for 38,502 yards (7.9 yds/att.) and 313 touchdowns with 78 INTs.

He has posted six seasons (2009, 2011-12, 2014-16) with 500-plus passing attempts and eight or fewer INTs, the most in NFL history ahead of Patriots QB Tom Brady (four), Redskins QB Alex Smith (two) and nine QBs (one). Rodgers has been named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player by The Associated Press twice in his career (2011, 2014), one of only eight players in league history to win the award mul­tiple times, and has been selected to the Pro Bowl in six of the last nine seasons (2009, 2011-12, 2014-16).

Rodgers is the lone QB in NFL history to throw 40-plus TD passes with seven or fewer INTs in a season, having done it twice in his career (45/6 in 2011, 40/7 in 2016). In the franchise record books, he holds seven of the top eight sin­gle-season marks for passer rating (2009-14, 2016), four of the top six for passing TDs (2011-12, 2014, 2016), six of the top seven for completion percentage (2010-14, 2016) and four of the top six for passing yards (2009, 2011, 2014, 2016).
