Rodgers turns 35 in December.
Rodgers' re-signing means that all top NFL QBs who had current contracts ending before decade's ends now are locked up for the near future, that is unless Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger wants to commit to playing beyond next year.
After news of the new agreement, Rodgers posted a message on Instagram in which he said he was "looking forward to making some more memorable moments this year and for years to come".
The fans in those 7000 extra seats will get to watch Rodgers play until he hits 40. He never voiced concern about his compensation.
Talks between Rodgers and the Packers led to major stories during the offseason because of the minimal years left in his previous contract. "Obviously, I'd love to finish my career here", Rodgers said in an ESPN Wisconsin interview earlier this month.
"If you ask the team about the last deal we did, and you ask me, both sides are happy".
Rodgers still has two years remaining on the five-year, $110-million extension he signed in 2013, for the seasons 2015-19. The new deal ties him to Green Bay through the 2023 season.
Rodgers was drafted 24th overall in 2005 out of the University of California - Berkeley. He threw for 1,836 yards, but only nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions. So he now is to make about $174 million over the next six seasons.
The new contract ensures there will be no distractions throughout the season, when Rodgers could have been scoping out a new team.
"Lastly, thanks to genetics that allow me to grow a mustache (sic) that even a hero of mine, (actor) Sam Elliott, might be proud of", Rodgers wrote.
