Rodgers signs record extension with the Packers

In celebration of Rodgers' record-breaking contract extension, he and his girlfriend Danica Patrick popped a bottle of Armand De Brignac Brut Gold champagne engraved with "Aaron Rodgers - Green Bay Packers", as seen on Patrick's IG story.

Waters remains eligible for the practice squad, but the Packers filled up the 10-man squad on Monday, signing two other defensive backs: safety Marwin Evans and rookie cornerback Tony Brown.

Although it seems the Packers have front-loaded his new deal, being the highest-paid player ever comes with lofty expectations.

Rodgers will earn an average of $33.5m over the course of his new deal, making him the highest-paid player in the National Football League ahead of fellow quarterbacks Matt Ryan ($30m), Kirk Cousins ($28m), Jimmy Garoppolo ($27.5m) and Matthew Stafford ($27m).

That's a pretty odd thing to say coming from the 34-year-old quarterback who will be 40 by the time this contract ends in 2023. "I've grown up, and like I said, I've grown older in an area, this city, this region, this state". Schefter also reports that Rodgers' contract will carry a cap hit of $33.5 million.

"Looking forward to making some more memorable moments this year, and for years to come".

Yaya Toure 'has passed a medical in London', claims agent
The Ivorian legend is now a free agent after a Premier League career which has seen him win the league on three occasions. Olympiakos finished third in the Greek league last season and are keen for a quick return to the top.

The Cal alum was drafted by the Packers in 2005.

If McGloin had instead been a four-year backup for the Raiders and had never once started for them, fans would have been beside themselves wondering who to root for.

Especially one where the Chiefs dealt away one of the league's biggest stars, Marcus Peters.

The Chiefs' Byron Pringle, an undrafted free agent who's had a strong preseason, caught four passes for 122 yards before leaving early in the second half with a hamstring injury.
